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.

Suffolk County Community College

Suffolk County Community College has chosen to participate in Student Achievement Measures as part of its collaborative effort with the State University of New York, and to incorporate another performance metric in its ongoing program to measure institutional effectiveness. In addition to internally devised metrics associated with strategic and operational planning and our participation with the Voluntary Framework for Accountability, Suffolk hopes to develop a comprehensive set of metrics that best describes the effectiveness of our institution and the community college mission.
