The Student Achievement Measure (SAM) Project

The purpose of the SAM Project is to enhance transparency and provide the public with a more comprehensive measure of college student progress and completion.  It is a collaborative effort of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), the American Council on Education (ACE), the Association of American Universities (AAU), the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), and the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU).
