Student Achievement Measure

The Student Achievement Measure (SAM) is a transparency initiative where higher education institutions track students across institutions to create a more complete picture of undergraduate student progress and completion within the higher education system.

Nationally, more than one in five students who complete a degree do so at an institution other than the one where they started, according to a study by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. Yet the typical method for calculating graduation rates counts only new students who enroll full-time and finish at same college or university. SAM counts all students – both new students and those who transfer in - and tracks students who transfer out to produce comprehensive progress and completion rates that accounts for students’ success even if they enroll in multiple higher education institutions.

For student achievement information collected and reported by SAM, please visit the University of Oklahoma portion of their website.
