LITTLETON, Colo. (Apr. 19, 2012) - For the fifth straight year, students in Arapahoe Community College’s Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program have collectively recorded a mean scaled score that exceeds the national average on the ASCP (American Society for Clinical Pathology) national certification examination.
The ACC students’ mean scaled score in 2011 was 575, compared to a national average of 501. In fact, all 17 ACC students who took the ASCP exam in 2011 registered a passing score. During the last five years (2007-11), 96.8% (91-of-94) of the ACC students who have taken the exam have passed on their first attempt.
Furthermore, ACC students’ mean scaled scores surpassed national averages in all seven subtests in 2011, as well. Subtests include Blood Bank, Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology, Lab Operations, Microbiology and Urinalysis.
“These results are truly phenomenal and representative of the high level of curriculum and leadership in our Medical Laboratory Technology program at Arapahoe Community College,” said Linda Comeaux, Dean of Health, Sciences and Engineering at ACC.
