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; Yamada, Hiroyuki – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2017
Statway® is an accelerated developmental mathematics intervention program for college students who are not yet prepared to succeed in a college-level math course. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching created the initiative to increase student success rates in developmental mathematics and subsequent credit-bearing, college-level…

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…

Yamada, Hiroyuki; Bohannon, Angel; Grunow, Alicia – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2016
Quantway is a Carnegie Math Pathways initiative which redesigns the content, pedagogy, and structure of traditional developmental math courses to simultaneously tackle traditional barriers of student success and support a broader range of developmental students in achieving their math potential. Specifically, Quantway is a quantitative reasoning…

Sowers, Nicole; Yamada, Hiroyuki – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2015
The Community College Pathways initiative consists of two pathways, Statway® and Quantway®, that accelerate post-secondary students' progress through their developmental mathematics sequence and a college-level course for credit. Launched in 2011, the Pathways have been remarkably successful, helping thousands of students achieve success in…

Yamada, Hiroyuki – Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2014
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…
