Online Learning Student Assessment (OLSA)
What is the OLSA?
As a student at Tri-C®, you have the opportunity to complete the Online Learning Student Assessment (OLSA). The purpose of the OLSA is to prepare you to succeed in the classroom and in Tri-C's online learning environment. The OLSA helps you determine how well you use study skills, navigate technology, and practice academic communication skills.
The OLSA should take 45 minutes to an hour and includes three graded sections: Technology, Study Skills, and Communication Skills. If you do not successfully complete the Technology module on your first attempt, you will also need to complete the Technology Review section. The OLSA will also introduce you to several Tri-C resources to support your success as a Tri-C student. The OLSA is available through Blackboard Learn. (Do not use the Blackboard Mobile App to take the OLSA!)
Whether your courses are face-to-face, blended, or online, the skills covered in the OLSA are key to your success!
How do I take the OLSA?
If you are a student, faculty member, or Tri-C employee who would like to take the OLSA, or a faculty member who would like to require the OLSA as part of your online, blended, or on-campus course you can contact OLAT by clicking the "Enroll & Take the OLSA" button on this page and filling out the form.
