The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

California State University-Stanislaus

CSU Stanislaus is a comprehensive university with liberal arts and professional programs, granting degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. Student success is one of the university’s high priority initiatives. Important indicators of student success are retention and graduation rates. The university wants to monitor student progress for those who persist and graduate from CSU Stanislaus, and those who transfer to other institutions and proceed to persist and graduate. SAM will play an important role in allowing the public access to a more comprehensive view of the progress toward persistence and graduation for the entering freshmen and undergraduate transfer student cohorts.
