Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This report summarizes the performance of the Imaging Informatics Professional (IIP) examination from 2009 to 2011 (six exam administrations). Results show that the IIP exam is a reliable measuring instrument that is functioning well to consistently classify candidates as passing or failing. An analysis of the section scores revealed that content in the Image Management, Systems Management, and Clinical Engineering sections of the exam were somewhat more difficult than the content in the other sections. The authors discuss how future candidates may use this information to help hone their study strategies. By all indications, the IIP examination appears to be statistically functioning as a high-quality certification measuring instrument.
