At OCC the central focus of the assessment process at all levels is the improvement of student learning. OCC faculty takes the lead in implementing assessment activities, as well as in planning and overseeing those activities. However, the Office of Student Learning Assessment provides support and guidance to the faculty of OCC in all assessment-related matters. The mission of the college-wide Student Outcomes Assessment Committee (SOAC) is to implement student outcomes and assessment at all levels of the institution. SOAC is an advisory committee comprised of faculty and academic deans that help to lead and shape the process of student learning assessment at OCC. Finally, OCC uses an electronic database, the “Assessment Results Tracking Information System” (ARTIS), to organize and track all assessment-related activities at the college.
