Admission Significance Parameters of the Radiologic Technology Program.
Shehane, Donna R.; And Others
This study was conducted in the radiologic technology department of East Tennessee State University to determine if existing criteria and procedures accurately predict an applicant's potential for the successful completion of program requirements. The 70 students admitted to the program were ranked utilizing standardized evaluation methodology (academic record and interview). Twenty-seven percent of the sample population did not complete the program. Two tailed t-tests were utilized to compare data between the academic and interview ranks of those students completing the program and those who did not. Academic ranking proved statistically significant. The interview process was not a significant indicator even though a standardized interview form was utilized. The academic rating form and interview form are appended. (Contains 10 references.) (DB)
