FEATURED STUDY

On a path to college completion!

Statway students graduate, transfer, and earn 4-year degrees at significantly higher rates than their matched peers. Read more in our new post-Pathways study.

Outcomes & Studies

The results speak for themselves. Students in Statway and Quantway are earning college level math credit at triple the rates and in half the time. This is in comparison to the 15% of students who succeed in the traditional developmental math sequences in two years.

These rates have held steady for six years even as enrollments have increased four-fold and the program has scaled to over 90 colleges. 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.

2018

This report explores the evolution of Statway into a single-semester course, including the reasons for the shift, impacts, and implementation challenges.

2017

Are Statway outcomes sustained even as enrollment increases, and how do these outcomes hold across different student subgroups? This analysis found continued high levels of student success for all sex and race/ethnicity groups even as enrollment quadrupled over five years.

Do the effects of Quantway last into the next year? This analysis found positive effects for students of all sex and race/ethnicity groups and across different colleges.

2016

This paper outlines the development of practical measures of Productive Persistence using digital learning system data to support instructional improvement.
