OTC Data Reporting System information for student enrollment and completion for non-credit and credential programming at adult workforce education centers.
OTC Reporting System Manuals
The Ohio Technical Center HEI Certificate and Credentials Reporting System Manual is a guide for training and using the HEI-OTC Data Reporting System.
Data Submissions and Outputs Calendar
Based on the data reported to HEI/OTC, the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) generates data elements specifically for program reports and subsidy funding.
The data submissions and outputs calendar operates on a fiscal year (beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30), allowing institutions to submit all of their course and enrollment data within a specified timeframe. This allows for consistency in data reporting across institutions. Moreover, it allows ODHE to take a “snapshot” for reporting needs like the Carl D. Perkins’ (Perkins) US Department of Education’s Consolidated Annual Report (CAR) and for state and federal subsidy allocations.
