Impact at a glance
Accelerated math pathways matter
Year after year, Quantway and Statway students are earning college level math credit at triple the rate and in half the time as their peers in traditional math sequences. These results also hold for all racial and ethnic groups.
Deeper learning driven by inclusive, intentionally designed curriculum and pedagogy
In a matched comparison study, Pathways students were shown to be significantly more likely to enroll in additional math courses within a year of their Pathways course than their peers in the traditional developmental math sequence. Using highly relevant, contextualized curriculum and an active learning approach, Pathways solutions help students build long-lasting math skills that have application in their lives, their academic courses, and their career path.
Transforming math learning with a focus on mindsets and student belonging
Evidence shows that Carnegie Math Pathways’ Productive Persistence interventions not only improve students’ confidence as learners, increase their sense of belonging, and reduce their anxiety, but also that doing so translates to greater student success and persistence in their course.
Innovative solutions producing results
Initial data show that students enrolled in online Carnegie Math Pathways courses are thriving in a collaborative online learning environment. With over 5,000 students served, Pathways courses delivered online are demonstrating success rates just as high as Pathways in-person courses.
Meanwhile, three years of data show that students in Carnegie Math Pathways corequisite courses succeed at 3 and 4 times the rate of their peers in traditional math sequences. These results suggest that with the right support, we can help more students succeed directly in college level math.
Stories from the Field
Through a campus-wide Guided Pathways reform effort, Milwaukee Area Technical College redesigned its foundational math offerings and changed its approach to math instruction. The result has been a dramatic improvement in student outcomes and a successful model of scaled math pathways reform.
Since 2014, Madison Area Technical College has seen a striking improvement in student outcomes using Quantway Core. That success has given way to the latest initiative of their student success strategy: dual enrollment partnerships that promote college readiness and access for more students using Quantway Core.
