Program Effectiveness

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 until 2013. Starting in 2014 graduate follow up survey forms are sent out 12 months after graduation.
 
The radiologic technology programs annual 2017 report reflected the following data:
 
Completion Rate - January 1 through December 31, 2017
This is an annual measurement of the number of students that began the program divided by the number of students that completed the program.  The program's completion rate for 2017 was 60%.  Twenty-four of the 40 students expected to complete the program in 2017 went on to complete the program in that year.


Credentialing Examination Pass Rate - 2013 through 2017
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 2013 through 2017 is 98%.  One hundred and twenty one of the 123 graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on the first attempt.
 
2017 100%
2016  95%
2015 100%
2014  95%
2013 100%
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Job Placement Rate - 2013 through 2017
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 123 graduates from 2012-2017. Eighty students responded out of the 123 graduates. Eighty out of 109 students during this period actively sought employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation in 2013 and within 12 months after graduation starting 2014 to present. The program's job placement rate average from the years 2013 through 2017 is 95%.
