Which number, 60% or 75%, is correct for Angelo State University's RN pass rate for 2011? The Texas Board of Nursing used 60%, while Texas Tech/ASU internal documents assert a 75% pass rate. (Click on any image to view it in a larger size)
Note the red arrow which indicates a lower target for 2012 vs. 2011. This seems in-congruent with a program that "increased" its pass rate from 71% to 75% in the last year. Normally, the target would rise in such a case, not fall.
If I had to hazard a guess, I'd theorize ASU parsed its pass rate by excluding RN programs slated for elimination.
That said, I've been wrong before and will be again.
Update 3-31-12: The Standard Times reported ASU's RN pass rate soared to nearly 90% for December graduates. The question is when they took the exam. Was it in 2011 or 2012?
