Gold, Ben K.
Some comparative statistics are provided on the performance of Los Angeles City College (LACC) students on the 1973-74 examinations in X-Ray Technology given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The data from the ARRT report are presented in five tables, as follows: (1) an overall summary; (2) California community colleges; (3) California institutions other than community colleges; (4) performance by state, all institutions; and (5) performance by state, community colleges only. The study data showed that: (1) the 29 LACC candidates were the 11th largest group of all 1,030 institutions in the U.S., 7th largest of the 99 U.S. community colleges, and 2nd largest of the 20 California community colleges; (2) 18 percent of the candidates are from community colleges, and in California, over half of the candidates are from community colleges; (3) community colleges averaged 14 candidates per institution (18 in California); other institutions averaged 7 candidates; (4) when compared with other California community colleges, LACC performance was slightly better in failure rate (7 percent compared with 9 percent) and slightly poorer in average scaled score (83.0 compared with 84.0); (5) California community college candidates performed better than their counterparts nationwide in both failure rate and average scaled score; and (6) when compared with other California institutions, California community colleges' performance was about equivalent; failure rate was slightly poorer; and average scaled score was slightly better.
