Improve Your OMS Experience: Training Materials For Collecting Data

OMS has moved to a new online system called Qualtrics.  Every participating center has access to their own reporting dashboards with real-time results.  The system also allows centers to filter results to look at select groups or timeframes, as well as benchmark performance against state, regional, and national results. NCA has developed a wide range of training materials to help your center make the best use of OMS.  Please use the information below to explore these resources.

Are you just starting with OMS at your center?  Have you been using OMS for some time, but want some ideas for boosting participation?

Do you need to access your center’s online account for OMS?

The online system for OMS is through Qualtrics, not the main NCA website.  You will only be able to access your center’s online account if you have already signed up to participate and your email address is the designated login (or you have login information you are sharing with a colleague).

On July 10, 2017, you should have received your center’s log-in email address and directions to set up a password in an email.  Alternatively, if you are brand new to OMS, you would have received this information in an OMS Start-Up Email.

To set up access to the Qualtrics reporting dashboards (where you can view results of the surveys your center collects), please go to, enter the designated email address (also called “username” in some places), select Forgot Password?, and follow the prompts to receive a password reset email to set up a password.  Once the password is set up, please feel free to share the login information with any staff at your organization needing access to the reports.

Please keep in mind that your reporting dashboards only give you access to survey results.  To collect/enter surveys themselves, you must have direct links to each survey type.  Qualtrics links were distributed on August 15, 2017, or in your center’s OMS Start-Up Email if you just joined recently.

If you cannot find the information you need, please contact your Chapter or

Resources in this section will continue to grow as we hear from the centers about what you would find most helpful.  Do you have ideas for additional training resources we could offer to CACs participating in OMS?  Let us know!  Contact to share your ideas.
