President's Welcome Thank you for visiting the Ohio College Testing Association website!OCTA is an organization dedicated to advancing the profession of post-secondary testing and assessment in the state of Ohio and the Great Lakes Region by providing professional development opportunities, resources, and networking to its members. You can learn more about us, including information on upcoming professional development opportunities, by exploring this site. OCTA has more than 85 members representing over 30 Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Kentucky and Indiana colleges and universities and test vendors! OCTA has fostered connections with our regional colleagues by expanding professional development opportunities to those throughout the Great Lakes region. In 2014, we held the first Great Lakes Testing Conference in Columbus, Ohio, and were surprised and excited to have colleagues from many states outside the Great Lakes join us. In the past year, we have held meetings among regional members at the NCTA Conference in Denver, planning meeting for the annual conference, and we hosted regional professional development events, with locations in Akron, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Hammond, Indiana. OCTA will be represented at this year’s NCTA Conference in St. Pete Beach, FL, the Ohio AHEAD conference in October, and we plan to host more regional professional development opportunities as well as our annual conference.
If there is anything that OCTA can do to support you, please let us know. Thank you and have a great school year!
