Research @ MTCU: The OEN Extension ProjectChris Monahan, Director
OISE-MTCU-HEQCO Policy Research Symposium
OISE/UT, May 16, 2013
OEN is a unique, numerical identifier assigned by the Ministry of Education to elementary/secondary students
MTCU is working with colleges and universities to extend the use of OEN in the postsecondary sector and (if feasible) to the employment and training sector
The OEN Extension Project makes available to institutions a validation and verification model for student records that already have an OEN, and provides a mechanism for colleges and universities to request that an OEN be assigned to students who do not have one
The project builds on the existing OEN registry in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Education, and MTCU works closely with universities, colleges and the Ontario College Application Services (OCAS)
This initiative is one of the MTCU’s priorities, is an integral part of the success of the Ministry and sector data collection work and has potential to support innovation and transformation in the sector
Total new OENs assigned by PSE sector to date approx: 351,000 (Current as of April 19, 2013)
OENs have been assigned to full and part time students
enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs, including out of province
and international students
Activity includes OENs assigned to full and part time students

*Preliminary Data from PFIS-CSER as of April 24, 2013
The extension of the collection of student level data, including the OEN, will assist in developing a better evidence base for the Ministry and for the sector
When fully implemented, the OEN will improve the ability to measure and promote student success by:
providing more meaningful and accurate measures of student flows and outcomes
informing tracking and research related to student pathways
improving data for evaluation, financial monitoring, planning and policy development
The value of OEN-based data will increase over time as more student cohorts that have OENs progress through the system
I am looking forward to hearing the presentations and wishing all of us interesting and productive conversations on some of the key issues of the Ontario postsecondary education
