Impact and Results
Launched in 2011, the Pathways have been remarkably successful, helping thousands of students achieve success in college-level mathematics. Due to its successful outcomes, the Pathways network has grown rapidly from the original 30 institutions to 49 institutions in fourteen states with nearly 10,000 students currently or previously enrolled in the Pathway.
The Pathways represent a completely new approach to developmental mathematics. Based on academic research and practitioner knowledge, the Pathways instructional system addresses the wide range of drivers contributing to the developmental mathematics crisis.
Return on Investment Study
ROI Study Shows Colleges Gain Revenue from Implementing the Carnegie Math Pathways. The Carnegie Math Pathways—Quantway and Statway—for students placing into development mathematics have had notable success in their first implementation.
Benefits of Joining
Joining the network means joining a community of educational professionals and institutional leaders that are collectively working to remove barriers to student success within developmental math.
Statway is focused on statistics, data analysis, and causal reasoning, combining college-level statistics with developmental math. It is designed to teach mathematics skills that are essential for a growing number of occupations and are needed for decision-making under conditions of uncertainty.
Quantway is focused on quantitative reasoning that fulfills developmental requirements with the aim of preparing students for success in college-level mathematics. The goal of Quantway is to promote success in community college mathematics and to develop quantitatively literate students.
The Pathways Bridge Courseware is designed to help Quantway or Statway students pursue even broader educational opportunities, including those in STEM and Business.
Many students enter developmental mathematics courses with a desire to learn and succeed; however, a large percentage of these students never complete their math requirement. Whereas some students withdraw effort soon after a course begins, many others do work hard — studying long hours, nights and weekends — yet do so with ineffective strategies.
California Expansion Resources
Recent changes in transfer-articulation agreements in the CSU and UC and the Basic Skills Transformation Funding opportunity have created a favorable policy environment for implementing Statway or Quantway in California. This is a great opportunity to adopt Pathways in California, and to that end, we have assembled some California-specific resources on these articulation updates and funding opportunities.
Explore the Pathways
Our holistic approach includes a robust faculty professional development program including faculty mentors, instructor access to all the curriculum and assessment materials, rich data analytics for your faculty and institution, and a community of engaged faculty, administrators, advisors, and institutional researchers working collectively to continuously improve the Pathways program and promote student success.
