Ozarks Technical Community College is committed providing evidence of the quality of our educational experiences and programs, in order to fulfill our mission and our responsibility to the communities that support us. A focus on demonstrating student performance on course, departmental or programmatic, division, and institutional learning outcomes is critical to OTC’s overall institutional effectiveness. The assessment process produces student learning data that drives OTC’s curriculum, planning, and budgeting processes.

Below you will find resources for faculty, as well as the general public, that explain OTC’s assessment of student learning process in more detail. You will also find student learning outcome assessment data organized by academic year.
