This study assessed the student’s awareness and knowledge of radiographic positioning and its evaluation criteria and concluded the efficiency of clinical training. One hundred and sixteen third and fourth year students at Al-Quds University and Al-Ahliya University, students filled a multiple-choice questionnaire. One point was rewarded for right answers while zero was given for wrong ones and a score was calculated from all answers and converted to percentage. Most students didn’t achieve good score. The mean score average for Al-Quds University was 60% and 56% for Al-Ahliya University, the English level of students and their attendance has an effect on their scores. The assessment of students’ knowledge of radiographic positioning criteria demonstrates better performance with higher English level students and higher attendance students. This study demonstrates a weak performance at questionnaires by the students.
