Program Effectiveness Outcomes

  • The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) requires programs to collect and report data that demonstrates program effectiveness.  This data includes program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate.  The data  is submitted to the JRCERT annually and can also be found on their website:  www.jrcert.org

    Program Completion Rate - January 1 through December 31, 2015

    This is the annual number of students who complete the program within 150% of the stated program length.  The program completion rate for 2015 was 81% (9/11).  The program's stated length is 24 months; 150% of the stated length is 36 months.     

    Five-Year Credentialing Examination Pass Rate - 2011 through 2015

    This is a five year average of the number of graduates who pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination on the first attempt within 12 months of graduation compared to the number of graduates who took the examination during the five year reporting period.  The program's credentialing examination pass rate over the past 5 years is 100% (51/51).  The program must document a minimum five-year average of 75 percent on first attempt.   

    Job Placement Rate - 2011 through 2015

    This is a five year average of the number of graduates who gain employment in the radiologic sciences within 12 months of graduation compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences during the five year reporting period.  The program's job placement rate over the past 5 years is 89% (41 of the 46 graduates actively seeking employment gained employment within 12 months of graduation.  The program must document a five-year average job placement rate of not less than 75 percent within 12 months of graduation.  The JRCERT defines not actively seeking employment as: 1) graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts, 2) graduate is unwilling to seek employment that required relocation, 3) graduated is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, 4) graduate is on active military duty, 5) graduate is continuing education.
