In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes, 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 credentialing examination pass rate, job placement rate and program completion 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 at (860) 906-5155.

Credentialing Examination:

The number of students who pass, on the first attempt, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination, or an unrestricted state licensing examination, compared with the number of graduates who take the examination within six months of graduation. The five-year average benchmark established by the JRCERT is 75%. Credentialing Examination Rate = number passed on 1st attempt, divided by number attempted within 6 months of graduation.

Year                 Results
Year 1: 2021 11 of 12 = 92%
Year 2: 2020 12 of 12 = 100%
Year 3: 2019 8 of 10 = 80%
Year 4: 2018 10 of 11 = 91%
Year 5: 2017 9 of 15 = 60%
5 Year Avg. 49 of 58 = 84%

This average is low due to one sub-standard pass rates in the last five years (2017). The coordinator and advisory committee discussed, recognized, and addressed this issue. Among other strengthened admission prerequisites/requirements, the program implemented the requirement of the TEAS test for the class of 2018 as one way to address student preparation and success.

Program 5 – Year Average of – % Job Placement:

The number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduating. The five-year average benchmark established by the JRCERT is 75%. Job Placement Rate = number employed, divided by number actively seeking employment within 12 months of graduation.

Year 5: 2017 11 of 12 = 92%
5 Year Avg. 56 of 57= 98%

Program Completion:

The number of students who complete the program within the stated program length. The annual benchmark established by the program is 60%. Program Completion Rate = number graduated, divided by number started the program.
