Program Effectiveness Data

In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes listed elsewhere on this site, the performance of the program is reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) (20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182, 312-704-5300, www.jrcert.org). Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate. Explanations of these measures and program data that correspond with the annual report most recently submitted to the JRCERT are noted below. This information can also be obtained at www.jrcert.org/resources/program-effectiveness-data. Questions about program effectiveness data should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
 
Note- Graduate follow up surveys are sent to graduates 6 months after graduation. Graduate survey for the class graduating in August 1013 has not been sent so data from the classes of 2008-2013 are included when appropriate.
 
The radiologic technology programs annual 2013 report reflected the following:
 
Completion Rate - January 1 through December 31, 2013
This is an annual measurement of the number of students that began the program divided by the number of students that actually completed the program. The program's completion rate for 2013 was 61%. Thirty-two of the 55 students expected to complete the program in 2013 went on to complete the program in that year.
 
Credentialing Examination Pass Rate - 2009 through 2013
This is the number of students that pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination on the first attempt within six months of graduation from the program. The figure reflects an average over a five-year span. The program's credentialing examination pass rate stated as an average from the years 2009 through 2013 is 100%. One hundred thirty two of the 132 graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on the first attempt.
 
Job Placement Rate - 2009 through 2013
This is the number of students that gain employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation versus the number that graduate and are actively seeking employment. The figure reflects an average over a five-year span. The program's job placement rate as an average from the years 2009 through 2013 is 84%. One hundred and eleven students of the 129 graduates actively sought employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation.
