Completion, Placement, and Licensure

Completion, Placement, and Licensure

Our Completion, Placement, and Licensure Rate Methodology is directly from the Council on Occupational Education (www.council.org) which is our Accrediting body.  The numbers listed below correspond with the form used to process the calculations.

Enrollment:

(5) Begin with number of students enrolled prior to the beginning of the report school year.

(6) Add the new enrollees during the reporting school year

(7) Equals Cumulative Enrollment.

(8) Subtract those still enrolled at the end of the reporting school year

 

Completers:

(9) Begin with the number of non-graduate completers (someone who completed enough of the program to gain employment in the field of study)

(10) Show the number of graduate completers

(11) Sum 9 & 10 gives you the total completers in the program.

Placement:

(12) Enter the non-Graduate Completers employed in position related to field of instruction

(13) Enter the number Graduate completers employed in positions related to field of instruction

(14) Sum 12 & 13 for the total completers employed in the field of study.

(15) Enter the number of graduate completers employed in positions unrelated to the field of instruction.

Licensure:

(16) Number of Graduate Completers waiting to take licensure exam

(17) Number of Graduate Completers who took licensure exam

(18) Number of Graduate Completers who passed Licensure exam

Other factors:

(19) Number of graduate completers unavailable for employment

(20) Graduate completers who refused employment

(21) Graduate completers seeking employment or status unknown

(22) Number of Withdrawals (student who left without earning a credential AND without gaining employment in the field related to training.

Calculations:

(23) Sum rows 16, 19, & 20 – these will not affect the placement percentages

(24) This is the difference between #10 and #23

(25) This is the difference between #11 and #23

 

(26) How Graduation Rate is figured:

A.   For each program, take the cumulative enrollment #7, subtract the number of students still enrolled listed in #8

B.   Divide the number of graduate completers listed in #10 by the total obtained in 'A' above and multiply by 100. This is the graduate completion rate for the program.

 

(27) How Total Completion Rate is figured: (Compliance rate is 60%)

A.   For each program, take the cumulative enrollment #7, subtract the number of students still enrolled listed in #8

B.   Divide the number of graduate completers listed in #11 by the total obtained in 'A' above and multiply by 100. This is the graduate completion rate for the program.

 

(28) How Graduate Placement Rate is figured:

Divide the number in #13 by the number in #24 for each program and multiply by 100

 

(29) How Total Placement Rate is figured: (Compliance rate is 70%)

Divide the number in #14 by the number in #25 for each program and multiply by 100

 

(30) How Licensure Exam Pass Rate is figured: (Compliance rate is 70%)

Divide the number who passed licensure exams #18 by the number who took the exams #17 and multiply by 100.
