1 Using This Manual
This manual is divided into five sections:
Introduction to SAM 2007: This provides an overview of the SAM 2007 product and suggests possible uses.
Before You Begin: This provides instructions concerning the setup of your web browser and PC to effectively access and use SAM 2007.
Using SAM 2007: This provides detailed instructions about using SAM 2007’s various features.
Troubleshooting Guide: This provides help and tips to resolve common SAM 2007 problems.
Technical Support and Maintenance for SAM 2007: This provides information about getting assistance from Course Technology.

2 Introduction to SAM 2007
2.1 Overview
Skills Assessment Manager Office 2007 (SAM 2007) is a Web-based software application that measures users’ proficiency in the Microsoft Office 2007 applications suite (Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word), as well as Internet Explorer 7 and 8 and Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

SAM 2007 offers three modes of instruction:
Exams: Create and schedule tailored exams with both task-based and objective-based questions. These exams can have the specific questions and tasks that you choose.
Training: Create and schedule training assignments consisting of taskbased questions. Like exams, you choose the questions in each training assignment.
Projects: Assign cases based on end-of-chapter materials that make use of the actual Office applications. Project work is then securely submitted to the SAM 2007 system for automatic grading.
SAM Exam, Training, and Projects can be purchased in any combination.

2.2 Some Ideas on Using SAM 2007
SAM 2007 can be used in a variety of ways. Its basic purpose is to teach students the use of Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, and Windows, test a student’s level of competency using these products, and then suggest appropriate instruction through a Course Technology textbook. The inclusion of SAM Projects enables you to further engage your students with active learning assignments. Using these realworld documents will help them be more prepared for the business world. The entire family of SAM 2007 products can be used in different settings where users need or want instruction in Microsoft business applications.

2.2.1 Using SAM 2007 in the Classroom
Prior to being placed in a class, your institution may require that students take a SAM 2007 Exam to determine their current proficiency level. An Instructor might also use SAM 2007 to evaluate his or her instruction. SAM 2007 can provide immediate feedback or can be used for practice, mid-term, or final exams.

2.2.2 Using SAM 2007 as a Business Tool
SAM 2007 can be an integral part of the hiring process. Prospective employees can be screened and tested on their proficiency in Microsoft 2007 applications by using customized SAM exams.
SAM 2007 can be used to determine which employees need additional instruction to obtain the level of competency their jobs require.

3 Before You Begin
3.1 Licensing and Setting Up SAM 2007
Note that SAM 2007 requires a separate license and user accounts from the SAM 2010 product. Please contact your Course Technology representative if you have any questions.

3.1.1 Key Code and Site License Versions of SAM 2007
There are two versions of SAM 2007: Key Code and Site License. Both versions of SAM 2007 offer the same features. From an administrative standpoint, however, they differ in some fundamental ways.
Key Code: At institutions that have adopted the key code version of the product, students purchase a tutorial that includes a SAM 2007 key code. The key code is necessary for each student’s initial login and they are prompted to enter a valid key code to activate their accounts. Site License: At institutions that have adopted the site license version, student users are not required to purchase anything. The institution purchases a license for a specific number of students to use the application for a fixed period of time (usually one year). In this model, site license students can enter and use SAM 2007 without having to purchase a key code.

3.1.2 Establishing Security for SAM 2007
The Supervisor is the first person at an institution to log into SAM 2007 and set up accounts and permissions for other users at that institution. The Institution Key is required for this initial login. If you have not created your Institution Key, contact your Course Technology sales representative for more information. The Supervisor logs in with a unique username, which consists of super_V7xxxxxx, where V7xxxxxx is your Institution Key. For example, if your Institution Key is V7123456, the Supervisor username would be: super_V7123456. The default Supervisor password is password.

2

It is strongly recommended that the Supervisor change the Supervisor password after logging in for the first time with the username super_[institution key] and the password password. Only one person at an institution may log in at a time with the Supervisor account in SAM 2007. The Supervisor should then set up Instructor accounts.

3.1.3 SAM User Roles
Each new SAM 2007 user account is assigned a role that determines its access. The following roles are supported:

Role
Supervisor

Administrator

Instructor

Student

Access Rights

functionality, including the Admin

When setting up SAM user accounts, please note the following: All users can see and modify only their own password.
For security purposes, once a username has been established, it cannot be modified. A username is not the same as the user profile name, which can be modified.

Any student whose institution has a key code license instead of a site license will be prompted for a key code when he or she logs in the first time. Key codes can be purchased at http://www.ichapters.com.
