Program Effectiveness Data

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,  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  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 until 2013. Starting in 2014 graduate follow up survey forms are sent out 12 months after graduation.
The radiologic technology programs annual 2016 report reflected the following data:
Completion Rate - January 1 through December 31, 2016
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 2016 was 57%.  Twenty-four of the 42 students expected to complete the program in 2016 went on to complete the program in that year.

Credentialing Examination Pass Rate - 2012 through 2016
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 2012 through 2016 is 98%.  One hundred and twenty of the 122 graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on the first attempt.
Job Placement Rate - 2011 through 2015
This is the number of students that gain employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation 2010 to 2013 and 12 months after graduation beginning 2014 versus the number that graduate and are actively seeking employment.  The figure reflects an average over a five-year span.  There were 118 graduates from 2011-2015. Seventy students responded out of the 118 graduates. Seventy out of 94 students during this period actively sought employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation from 2010-2013 and within 12 months starting 2014. The program's job placement rate average from the years 2011 through 2015 is 86%.
