Jenkins, Paul Davis; Ellwein, Todd; Boswell, Katherine

In 2007, the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges launched the Student Achievement Initiative (SAI), a system-wide policy to reward colleges for improvements in student achievement.

The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the extent of awareness and understanding of the initiative among college personnel and examine the initial responses to it by the colleges.
