Community College Pathways' Program Success: Assessing the First Two Years' Effectiveness of Statway®
Yamada, Hiroyuki
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
Statway® is one of the Community College Pathways initiatives developed by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to promote students' progress beginning in developmental math to and through college math credit. Early descriptive results suggested that the Statway program has tripled the success rate for students in half the time to achieve college math credit. This study presents a more rigorous causal analysis of hypothesized program effects. We used a multilevel approach with propensity score matching to evaluate the effectiveness of Statway. Propensity score matching results are consistent with earlier descriptive findings. They replicate across two different cohorts and hold up for varying genders, race/ethnicity groups, and math placement levels. Directions for future work are also suggested.
