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.

Minnesota State University-Mankato

Minnesota State University, Mankato strives to ensure the success of each of our students. Through our involvement with the Student Achievement Measure, we are committed to represent the achievement of our students, including those individuals who are continuing their educational journey at Minnesota State University, Mankato, as well as those who have transferred to a different institution. Traditional student achievement reports have failed to represent the enrollment patterns of many students. Voluntarily reporting through SAM affords us the opportunity to more robustly showcase the achievement of our students.
