Radiography Program Effectiveness Data


Program Effectiveness Data Percentage

Five year average credentialing pass rate for 2012-2016

Board pass rate measurements are based upon the number of graduates that pass the exam on first attempt. Over the past five years (2012-2016) 78 out of 88 students have passed the exam on first attempt. This makes our board pass rate 89% over the past five years.


Five year job placement rate for 2012-2016

Job placement rate data is based upon the number of completed graduate surveys returned. Surveys are mailed to graduates 12 months after graduation from the program. The job placement rate is a measure of the surveys returned over the past five years. The JRCERT defines job placement as the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences. 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 requires relocation, 3) graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, 4) graduate is in active military duty, and or 5) graduate is continuing education. Over the last five years (2012-2016) 40/45 surveys returned indicate that 89% of graduates were able to find jobs within 12 months of graduation.

2016 Results = 90% Job Placement Rate


Annual program completion rate for 2017

Program completion is a measure of the number of students who started the program compared to the number of students that complete the program. The Jackson College Radiography Program begins every spring semester and finishes two years from that date. The class of 2017 began with 20 students and graduated 19 of those students.

Five year program completion rate = 88% (102 admitted, 90 completed)
