State Licensing Examinations Pass Rates

Albany Technical College collects and evaluates both quantitative and qualitative data from internal data and external examination results to gauge student achievement at the institutional level. Some of the College’s programs prepare students for professions that require licensure and certification; therefore, we analyze the pass rat on the licensure and/or the certification exam as a means of measuring student achievement for the required program. In applicable programs, program faculty reviews and evaluates the pass/failure performance on state licensure examinations to ensure that minimum standards are being met.
