Radiographic Procedures and Image Analysis courses

Each Radiographic Procedures and Image Analysis course will consist of the following methods to evaluate a student’s knowledge of the material:

  • Written quizzes administered throughout the course that include diagrams and the evaluation of radiographs.
  • Written cumulative examination at the conclusion of the course that includes diagrams and the evaluation of radiographs.
  • Simulated Positioning Final Exam that is performed on another student.  The student whose performance is being evaluated will perform an entire radiographic examination on a “patient” without an exposure being made. The radiographic examination (2-3 per course) completed by the student is selected at random based on the material for the respective course. The performance of the individual examinations is designed to ensure that a student has a competent understanding of the nature of the examination and the performance of it as well.
    • As stated in the Program Progression Policy, if a student should fail to obtain the required minimum eighty (80) percent on any simulation, he/she will be allowed one opportunity to retest in order to obtain the eighty percent. If the student should fail to obtain the eighty percent, he/she will be immediately dismissed from the program with the possibility to reapply.
     

Calculation of cumulative course grade consists of the following:

  1. The averages from each written quiz will be averaged together with this average counting towards one-third of the final course grade.
  2. Grade from the written cumulative examination will count towards one-third of the final course grade.
  3. The averaging of the Simulated Positioning Final Exams will be averaged together with this average counting towards one-third of the final course grade.

NOTE: Exams are not curved or dropped from the student’s overall grade.

NOTE: Cumulative course averages will not be rounded either up or down to the nearest percentage point.

NOTE: As stated in the Program Progression Policy, failure to obtain the required minimum eighty (80) percent at the conclusion of a course will necessitate the student to complete remedial testing as determined by the instructor. Obtaining a minimum of eighty percent on the remedial testing will result in the student receiving an eighty percent for the course. If the student should fail to obtain the minimum eighty percent on the remedial testing, he/she will be immediately dismissed from the program without the possibility to reapply. The successful completion of the remedial testing will result in the student continuing in the program but under probationary status. If the student fails to obtain the minimum eighty percent at the conclusion of a second course, the student will be immediately dismissed from the program without the possibility to reapply.
