Huang, Melrose; Norman, Jon; Yamada, Hiroyuki – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2018
Since 2011, Statway®, an alternative pathway to completing college-level developmental mathematics, has evolved from a two-semester sequence into a single-semester course. As of the 2016-2017 academic year, five institutions have offered an accelerated one-term version of Statway. This paper describes why these colleges chose to implement…

Huang, Melrose – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2018
Traditional developmental mathematics sequences are a major impediment for community college students who need to acquire college-level mathematics credit in order to attain their long-term academic goals. Each year, approximately 500,000 students fail to complete their developmental mathematics coursework, jeopardizing their ability to earn an…

Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2017
The Carnegie Foundation launched its Math Pathways initiative nearly six years ago at 29 colleges across the country with the aim of improving success rates in developmental math. Tens of thousands of students a year, who need additional preparation for college-level math, are shut out of earning degrees and fulfilling careers due to the huge…

Hoang, Hai; Huang, Melrose; Sulcer, Brian; Yesilyurt, Suleyman – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2017
College math is a gateway course that has become a constraining gatekeeper for tens of thousands of students annually. Every year, over 500,000 students fail developmental mathematics, preventing them from achieving their college and career goals. The Carnegie Math Pathways initiative offers students an alternative. It comprises two Pathways…

Yamada, Hiroyuki – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2017
This report analyzes evidence from a new study assessing the effectiveness of Quantway 1 (QW1), a single-term accelerated developmental math course with a focus on quantitative reasoning. Quantway® is one of the Pathways courses (along with Statway®) developed by a network of faculty and content experts convened by the Carnegie Foundation to…

Goldhaber, Dan; Harris Douglas N.; Loeb, Susanna; McCaffrey, Daniel F.; Raudenbush, Stephen W. – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2015
It is common knowledge that teacher quality is a key in-school factor affecting student achievement. While the quality of teaching clearly matters for how much students learn, this quality is challenging to measure. Evaluating teacher quality based on the level of their students' end-of-year test scores has been one method of assessing…

Silva, Elena; White, Taylor; Toch, Thomas – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2015
Early in the twentieth century, the industrialist Andrew Carnegie established the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to create a pension system for the nation's college professors. The introduction of this pension system proved an ingenious educational reform. At the time, American higher education was a largely ill-defined…

McKay, Sarah; Silva, Elena – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2015
An evaluation system that is designed to support and improve teacher practice--rather than simply to assess and manage teacher performance--would have as its foundation effective and reliable processes to observe classroom practice and give teachers useful feedback. Such an improvement-focused evaluation system should be aligned with and…

Headden, Susan; McKay, Susan – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2015
Quitting in the face of hard work is never the response a teacher wants to see, but it's one that threatens to become more common as academic pressures rise. The new Common Core State Standards, the latest in a decades-long effort to drive educational improvement, soon will be setting unprecedented expectations for the performance of students,…
