Program Bulletin (pdf)

Program outcomes assessment is ongoing in an effort to assure that the program is meeting its prescribed level of quality and student success.

 

Results are reported to the JRCERT and published annually. Outcomes from the past five years of program assessment are published in the table below.

 

ARRT Credentialing Rate

 

Five-year average credentialing examination (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Radiography exam) pass rate of not less than 75% at first attempt within six months of graduation. This is a measure of the number and percentage of program graduates who write and pass the national credentialing examination within six months of program completion.

Job Placement Rate

 

Five-year average job placement rate of not less than 75% within 12 months of graduation. This measure is the number of graduates employed within 12 months of graduation compared to the number actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences. (Note: The number actively seeking employment can vary from the number of actual graduates due to military deployment, continuing of one’s education, etc. as those individuals may not be actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences.)

Program Completion Rate

 

This measure is the number of students completing the program within 150% of the stated program length compared to the number initially enrolled in the cohort (number completing divided by the number starting). For UWHC School of Radiologic Technology 150% of program length = 36 months.  The program benchmark is 80%.
