RadExam

What is RadExam?

RadExam is a collaborative effort of the Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) which equips radiology residency programs with needed tools for ACGME-required formative assessment with its versatile set of examinations and iterative testing.

It contains high quality, psychometrically validated, peer-reviewed multiple choice questions. The standardized tests have been developed from blueprints based on the ABR study guides then piloted and audit.

All have national and institutional comparative performance benchmarks.

  • For questions, contact Sheryl Jordan, MD. Please make sure your residents are updated in the ATPU System for them to appear correctly in RadExam.
  • If they are not correct after that, then send your current resident list to radexamsupport@acr.org

Program Directors and Coordinators must sign up to access new exams.

Program Directors and Coordinators


RadExam provides each Program Director with specialty and resident level specific exams that can be administered at the end of each rotation. Pre-call, non-interpretative skills and physics exams are included.

Performance reports provide graphically displayed results with comparisons with both institutional and national means for both individuals and programs. See samples below. This data is key for CCC and PEC reviews. Currently, 165 programs have signed up as of July 2018.

Exam content includes at least one per R level per specialty, Modality specific exams in physics, and non-interpretive skills exams that will give you the ability to:

  • Review exam content
  • Schedule exams to appropriate residents to be taken during a specified period
  • Immediately review the results, with comparisons to other R level equivalent residents at your institution and nationally (as soon as sufficient examinees have taken the exam)
  • Track results over time, within specialty and modality
  • Compare your institutional overall results with other institutions

Future updates to the RadExam will allow you to:

  • Make your own exams from the database of questions
  • Alter resident demographics (R level, add and remove residents) from within RadExam
  • Automatic emails to inform your residents that exams are scheduled and available
  • Assign specific access permissions to your faculty
  • Ability to reset exams and also mark incomplete exams as ‘completed’ so that scores appear

Resident Benefits


RadExam gives residents the ability to regularly assess their specialty specific knowledge base as they complete each rotation, and compare their results with other R level comparable residents locally and nationally. The questions are of similar format to the ABR questions and should provide good practice opportunities.
