The Student Accommodaiton Manager, or SAM, is a secure web-based database application designed to help postsecondary Disability Service Providers manage student data, disabilities, accommodations, case notes, and much more. SAM was developed by CIDI and is hosted using Quickbase and follows a software-as-a-service model where there is no software to install or server to manage or own. Essential functions such as system availability and backups are provided for you. Predefined reports, as well as a powerful report writer, allows users to quickly and easily find, filter and transform data. SAM can also serve as a forms repository and auto-generate accommodation notification letters. For Disability Service offices lacking strong institutional IT support, SAM offers a viable mult0user, web-based solution.
