The Radiologic Technology Program at L.A.C.C., 1958-1972.
Gold, Ben K.
This study is an assessment of the Radiologic Technology program at Los Angeles City College (LACC, California). Four approaches were used to determine the program's effectiveness: (1) analysis of LACC student performance on the American Registry of Radiological Technologists examination; (2) analysis of follow-up data from questionnaires sent to 203 LACC graduates who received their AA in Radiological Technology between 1959 and 1971; (3) obtaining opinions of local hospital administrators; and (4) examining records of students failing the registry examination. Some of the findings, which supported the program's apparent effectiveness, were: (1) average performance on the registry exam was about equal to that of all other California programs and better than that for colleges nationwide; (2) students' grade point average at LACC appeared to be a good predictor of their registry examination score; (3) success at anatomy or physiology is related to success in passing the registry exam; (4) graduates were generally pleased with their training at LACC; and (5) local hospital administrators generally regard the LACC program quite highly. It was recommended that more consideration be given to a requirement of satisfactory completion of anatomy and/or physiology. (RN)
