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 here. Questions about program effectiveness data should be directed to the Program Director.
The radiography program's 2017 annual report to the JRCERT reflected the following:
Program completion rate is defined as the number of students who complete the program within 150% of the stated program length. The program's completion rate for 2017 was 93% (29 began and 27 completed).
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 95%. 132 of the 139 graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on the first attempt in the last five years.
ARRT Pass Rate for the Class of 2017 was 100%.
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 2013 through 2017 is 97% for graduates actively seeking employment and obtaining a position in the radiologic sciences.
The JRCERT has defined "not actively seeking employment" as:
