Reminder: SAM Project Registration Continues

September 05, 2013

The Student Achievement Measure (SAM), the new project to measure student progress and completion launched by the six national higher education associations, continues to accept college and university registrations. 

Led by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), and using data from the National Student Clearinghouse, SAM seeks to report student progress at the bachelor’s degree and associate’s degree/certificate level, including students who enroll and graduate from the same institution, transfer and graduate from one or more subsequent institutions, and students whose status is unknown. 

Participation in SAM is voluntary, and also requires joining and paying the membership fees for the National Student Clearinghouse.  Institutions electing to participate in SAM will post their own student achievement data on the SAM website after the 2012-13 academic year data become available.

More details can be found on the SAM website.
