Critical Thinking 2. Effective Communication 3. Global Understanding and Responsibility 4. Information Literacy 5. Personal Development 6. Social Responsibility 7. Quantitative Literacy 8. Scientific Literacy 9. Aesthetic Awareness This list was derived from college faculty s rigorous research reviews in the following areas: attributes desired by employers for college graduates; attributes necessary for success in the most common adult roles of citizen, worker and family member; and trends in other colleges and universities. CAMPUS ORIENTATION Each campus offers orientation sessions that are designed to assist the new students knowledge of and familiarity with various available facilities and services. Orientation schedules are available online and through the office of the Campus Director of Student Services. COMPASS (COMputer-adaptive Placement Assessment and Support System) Students must have an application to the college processed prior to sitting for assessment. Oakland Community College offers computer-based assessment for English and Mathematics. COMPASS Assessment is only one component in a comprehensive new student orientation program designed to also provide appropriate academic advisement and course placement. For initial placement, English and Mathematics COMPASS must be taken in the same testing session. This will help to ensure that entry-level OCC students will have maximum opportunities to achieve their educational goals and to allow the institution to best identify student abilities, interests, and needs. New student orientation sessions are presented regularly throughout each semester. COMPASS (COMputer-adaptive Placement Assessment and Support System) (continued) Assessment information and answers will be entered electronically, although some math computation may be done with a pencil and paper. Students begin by entering identification information and then work through a practice COMPASS section. Both assessments are untimed. College guest students who are applying to OCC using the Michigan Uniform Undergraduate Guest Application form are exempt from English and Mathematics COMPASS assessment. (Note: High school guest students are NOT exempt.) Disabled or disadvantaged students should consult their campus Accessibility Compliance Center and Educational Support Services (ACCESS) office for assistance with the scheduling and administration of assessments. ESL (English as a Second Language) students should read the information on Placement in ESL, Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency (MTELP) on page 17 and contact the ASC for additional information and testing times. Students with questions about assessment or placement should consult their campus counseling office. Scheduling Placement Appointment Please call your home campus Academic Support Center (ASC) or Testing Center for an appointment or for further information. The walk-in schedule for COMPASS testing is available online. A valid picture I.D. must be presented.

Students may retake the COMPASS placement test one time by scheduling a retake at the appropriate campus ASC. One additional retake may be authorized by a counselor or the English COMPASS Coordinator. Placement will be determined by the student s best score. Students may not appeal their final best English placement. COMPASS English Notes: Practice booklets are available at any OCC Academic Support Center (ASC). Students take the writing skills section first, then the reading section. Students placing into ENG 1055 or ENG 1060 MUST see a counselor before registering. COMPASS Mathematics Placement OCC has adopted the COMPASS Math Placement assessment to help students identify appropriate math courses. While proper placement in a math course is critical, it cannot in itself guarantee success. Success in mathematics requires active participation in the learning process and is significantly affected by many factors, including attendance, the amount and quality of time spent studying, doing homework, and preparing for assessment and other assigned activities. Unless specifically exempt, all students, including those who plan to take MAT 2530 (Mathematics for Elementary Teachers I), must complete COMPASS Math Placement testing before registering in a math class. After being admitted to the college, students may complete COMPASS Math Placement testing individually by contacting any OCC campus Academic Support Center (ASC), or as part of a new student orientation program. The COMPASS Math Placement test will identify the appropriate OCC entry-level math course. Students may take math courses at or below the course level indicated by their placement result. Students who disagree with their initial math placement may repeat the COMPASS Math Placement test a total of two times within two years. Those students who still disagree with their results after taking a COMPASS Math Placement test a second time should contact an OCC counselor. Students who are still not satisfied may appeal their math placement by visiting the Math department. You are exempt from the COMPASS Math Placement if you meet any one of the following conditions: You have documentation of ACT scores showing 12 or higher on the math subtest within the past two years You have earned a bachelor degree or higher from an accredited U.S. college or university You are admitted to OCC under a College Guest Application from another college or university You have evidence of passing with a C or better the prerequisite math course at OCC or the equivalent college transfer course at another accredited college within the past three years You have earned a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement Exam in Calculus AB or BC You have documentation of a COMPASS Math Placement score taken elsewhere within the past two years You have already earned credit for a math course at OCC or at another accredited college and you wish to enroll in the same math course Temporary Exemption may be granted to students whose documentation for the above is pending by providing valid unofficial documentation to an OCC counselor.

Assessment of Learning Assessment is an on-going process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations clear to students and setting appropriate outcomes for learning. It helps determine how well student performance matches those outcomes. It uses the resulting information to improve student learning. The assessment process helps to support OCC s shared academic culture dedicated to assuring and improving student learning. Assessment of student learning occurs at various academic levels. The goals at each level are different. Classroom Assessment The goal of classroom assessment is to enhance student learning. Instructors use a variety of methods in the classroom to get feedback about student learning in terms of course objectives. Program Assessment Every degree, diploma and certificate program has a Statement of Purpose and learning outcomes. Each learning outcome is measured by the faculty in the program through a variety of assignments, tests, practicums, projects and licensing examinations. Also, program graduates are surveyed to get feedback about how well the program prepared them for their jobs. The goal of program assessment is to revise and improve the curriculum of the program and to insure student success. General Education Assessment Students come to college for a variety of reasons. Regardless of the reason, it is the goal of the college to give its students an education including general skills and knowledge critical for success in life. Therefore, the OCC faculty have identified ten general education attributes and have incorporated them into the general education requirements of the college. These attributes are assessed in the same way as course learning objectives in the classroom. Additionally, Student Assessment of General Education (SAGE) occurs collegewide each year. Where to Find Out More About Assessment Students desiring additional information may contact any campus Dean. Veterans Benefits Recipients All veterans wishing to take advantage of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits should complete admission and registration forms in consultation with the VA representative located at the Auburn Hills Campus. VA recipients are responsible for the payment of tuition and fees if your GI Bill doesn t cover tuition and fees. Those eligible for VA benefits are reminded that there is often considerable delay between the time benefits are requested and when checks begin to arrive. It is necessary, therefore, to make financial arrangements in order to prevent financial difficulty during the intervening period before checks commence. Please call the Veterans Advisor at Auburn Hills (please refer to the Campus Directory on p. 2) for further details.
