The results speak for themselves. Nearly half of students earn college math credit in Statway® within a single year. This is in comparison to the 15% who succeed in the traditional programming in two years. We’ve had similar success with Quantway®, with double the success rate in developmental math compared to traditional developmental sequences in half the time.
Reflecting on 5 Years of Quantway and Statway
After 5 years and a four-fold increase in enrollment, Statway and Quantway students continue to be much more likely to successfully complete college-level math and developmental math sequences and do so in half the time.
Public reports about the Carnegie Math Pathways
These have held steady for five years. Additionally, new data has shown that Statway and Quantway students are also earning more college level credits after completing the Pathways and more likely to transfer than students at large. To learn more, see our latest program reports and research brief:

This paper describes the data and methods used to examine the efficacy of Statway and Quantway. The analysis shows that student that have completed Statway and Quantway are earning more college level credits and also more likely to transfer than students at large.
Maintaining Success Rates: Does Statway® Sustain its Impact as it Scales to New Classrooms and Institutions?
By Melrose Huang and Hiroyuki Yamada
This analysis of a new report on the effectiveness of Statway, found continued high levels of student success for all sex and race/ethnicity groups even as enrollment quadrupled over five years. Future research is also discussed.
Do Effects of Quantway® Persist in the Following Year? A Multilevel Propensity Score Approach to Assessing Student College Mathematics Achievement
By Hiroyuki Yamada
This report analyzes results of a new study on the effectiveness of Quantway 1, the accelerated quantitative reasoning developmental math program of the Carnegie Math Pathways. The findings show positive effects for students of all sex and race/ethnicity groups and across different colleges. Future work is also discussed.
By Hiroyuki Yamada, Angel Bohannon, and Alicia Grunow
This study assessed the effectiveness of the developmental math course, Quantway 1 over six semesters. The findings provide robust evidence that Quantway 1 increases student success in fulfilling developmental math requirements and advances equity in student outcomes.
Assessing the First Two Years’ Effectiveness of Statway: A Multilevel Model with Propensity Score Matching
By Hiroyuki Yamada and Anthony S. Bryk
This study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of Statway during its first two years of implementation by means of a multilevel model with propensity score matching to control for possible selection bias and increase the validity of causal inference.

This report provides descriptive statistics on 2014-2015 student outcomes, as well as insights into potential areas for improvement based on data from the fourth year’s Pathways implementation.
By Scott Strother and Nicole Sowers
This report describes the comparative analyses from the Pathways summative assessment system. All items on the summative assessments were rigorously validated by field testing with over 500 members of a comparison sample who had taken a college mathematics or statistics course.

This article published in Change Magazine captures the experience of Pathways students and faculty. Students find themselves learning math in a new way with greater confidence in their ability to succeed and faculty are no longer teaching along, but as part of a network that extends across the country. The article highlights the power of improvement science to generate transformational learning opportunities.
Pathways to Improvement: Using Psychological Strategies to Help College Students Master Developmental Math
By Elena Silva and Taylor White
Drawing on a research base developed over many years in education, Carnegie is testing a set of strategies to help students persist and succeed academically. This kind of persistence, what the researchers and faculty who developed the Pathways call “productive persistence,” is a key driver of Quantway® and Statway®.
