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.
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.
A recent publication cautions against using existing measures around students' personal qualities because they were primarily designed for research. Rather, new measures, including practical measures, must be developed to provide insight into this aspect of learning.
This workshop covers the development and use of “practical” measures, which provide powerful insights embedded in daily practice. Participants will learn how to create a system of measures to support improvement, and how to utilize the measures for systemic change.
In September 2014, Carnegie convened a meeting in Washington, DC. to use the work of Austin Independent School District as a case study through which to examine the processes of quality improvement and the implications of networked improvement communities for policy.
Rachel Mudge, an instructor at Foothill College, and former faculty-in-residence at Carnegie, explains what it means to be a part of the Pathways community and how that involvement played out in the classroom.
James Willis, a member of the Carnegie Math Pathways Networked Improvement Community (NIC), describes the importance of social connections within the NIC as a key resource for innovation diffusion and support.
Lawrence Morales and Jane Muhich at Seattle Central College speak about helping students succeed by focusing on developing productive persistence, which is the tenacity and good strategies students need to be academically successful.
