SAM Logo  Student Accommodation Manager

The Student Accommodations Manager 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 is developed and hosted using Intuit's 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 allow you to quickly and easily find, filter, and transform data. SAM can also serve as a forms repository and auto-generate accommodation notification letters. For institutions lacking strong IT support, SAM offers a viable multi-user, web-based solution.

Features

SAM was developed using Intuit's QuickBase and utilizes standard QuickBase features and security, including:

  • Totally web-based
  • 24-hour, 365-day availability
  • No special software or installations required
  • Accessible / VPAT Voluntary Product Accessibility Template
  • Custom, printable reporting
  • Email integration
  • Searchable on-line help
  • Advanced access control via logins, users and roles
  • Data encryption
  • Daily backups
  • Redundant data storage

Training

Terminology

SAM is a relational database application. An understanding of the following terms and concepts is essential to understanding the SAM design:

Tables

SAM organizes data into different tables that allow you to instantly access, sort, and find information for an individual student or related data sets.

At the core is the Student table, however, SAM allows users to manage data for and report on:

Access

Access to SAM requires a login and password. Each user is provided with their own login and password. A user’s login is their email address. Passwords are case sensitive.

Login to SAM

Security

Users of SAM benefit from the following security measures provided for all QuickBase applications:

  • An industry-standard, 128-bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol is employed to ensure information is neither intercepted nor corrupted during transmission over the Internet.
  • Encryption technology is used to help protect data stored on disk.
  • A state-of-the-art data center provides intrusion detection software and hardware, advanced firewall software, daily back-ups to prevent data loss, video surveillance, and uninterruptible power supplies.

Permissions

SAM users can access the same data simultaneously. However, using roles and permissions, you can determine what data users can see and what actions users can perform.

Reporting

With SAM, you can quickly and easily find and view your data the way you want. Reporting is simple, with:

  • A host of pre-defined reports to help you get started quickly.
  • An easy to use report writer that allows you to create tabular reports, summary reports, and even graphs and charts.
  • A powerful Find feature that allows you to filter data by multiple fields.

Implementation

Prior to creating the SAM application for the customer, the customer should complete the SAM Implementation Guide with instructions. This Microsoft Word document helps the customer identify:

  • How many users will have access
  • The name and email address of all users (this information will be used to create the QuickBase logins for users)
  • If any new roles and permissions are required in addition to the service provider and administrator roles
  • What role to assign to each user
  • The multiple-choice field values
  • The list of available accommodations

Completed documents and questions can be emailed to Kim Harris at kim.harris@amac.gatech.edu.

When the SAM customer application is created, AMAC will use the information provided in the implementation guide to provision users, create any new roles and permissions, and customize the values for multiple-choice fields.
