Statewide Annual Licensure Report, 1999.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
This report provides the licensure examination results for two-year technical associate degree and one-year certificate programs that lead to professions requiring licensure. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board uses this information as part of its overall assessment of the effectiveness of technical education programs at community and technical colleges in the state. The percentage of students who pass a licensure exam is one of nine performance measures that Texas community colleges are required to report annually. This report includes data on the following programs that require licensure examinations: cosmetology, court reporting, fire protection, funeral directing, embalming, interpreting for the deaf, law enforcement, massage therapist, nursing assistance, nursing, occupational therapy assistance, and physical therapy assistance. Table 1 provides a statewide summary. It lists all programs and the percent tested and passed for 1995-98. Passing percentages in 1998 range from 23% in Court Reporting to 100% in Fire Protection (Aircraft Rescue). Table 2 offers results by program and institution. For each program, the report lists all colleges where the program was offered and the percent tested/passed for each college from 1995-98. Appendix A provides explanatory notes for the tables, and Appendix B gives profiles of licensure examinations. (RDG)
