Converting Data to Information


The purpose of the Office of Planning, Evaluation, and Institutional Research (OPEIR) is to support the University's planning, assessment, evaluation, and improvement efforts, maintain the integrity of institutional data, coordinate the flow of management information both within the University community and to external agencies, and coordinate the University's Quality Assurance Funding efforts.

Additionally, OPEIR provides UTC's students and the Chattanooga community with opportunities for admissions, college credit, and licensure/certification testing. Through the UTC Testing Center, OPEIR administers both individual and group standardized examinations to enrolled students and residents of the region. The UTC Testing Center is an authorized site for tests administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS), the American College Testing Program (ACT), The Psychological Corporation and other testing agencies.
