COSD class of 2015 posts perfect certification exam pass rate results
The Spring 2015 graduates of the Radford University Communication Science and Disorders program have added additional luster to the department’s reputation for excellence.
For the fifth consecutive year, COSD graduates achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the PRAXIS II. Passage of this summer’s test positions the 31 COSD practitioners for licensure in Virginia as speech-language pathology clinical fellows. The national average for passage of the test in 2015 is 90.1 percent.
"These students showed real dedication to their profession and they exemplify excellence," said COSD Chair Diane Millar. "They join a proud heritage of Radford University-trained speech-language pathologists."
Additionally, 30 of 31 members of the class of 2015 have entered the profession in school systems, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing facilities and other clinical settings across many states.
Waldron College of Health and Human Services Dean Kenneth Cox commended the accomplishment of the COSD class of 2015.
"These results demonstrate the dedication of both faculty and students to excellence. I am very proud of their successful contributions to preparing such outstanding speech language pathologists," said Cox.
