Using Evaluation to Scale a Mathematics Pathways Initiative for Student Success

Conference: 2017 SHEEO Higher Education Policy Conference
Date and Time: August 09, 2017 11:30 AM–12:30 PM
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Venue: Minneapolis Marriott City Center Hotel | Ballroom 3

Mathematics pathways are an effective structural solution to address low persistence and high failure rates in developmental and introductory college-level mathematics. In this session, researchers from MDRC and CCRC along with policy and evaluation staff from the Dana Center will describe how they are supporting and researching the process of implementing pathways, not just within institutions or higher education systems, but across entire states. Presenters will discuss empirical findings on institution- and state-level conditions necessary to scale math pathways, challenges that emerge, and how stakeholders and the Dana Center are navigating those challenges.
