  • Collective impact….
  • Four classes of 12th graders, class of 06, 07, 08, and 09, all from the same relatively resource-rich, diverse high school.Show of hands – how many of you know how many of your students go to a community college? Which community college?
  • Looked at three main markers I used to describe a high school mathematics pathway. And, of course, “where students stop” is in part determined by “When students stop”….
  • THOUGHTS? DISCUSSION? Which path is best? All are appropriate if your goal is high school graduation. But the goalposts have moved!Comparison of Participation by All Students (N=2920) and the subset of Community College-Bound Students (CC Freshmen) (N=953) in 12 different High School Mathematics PathwaysNote. Some students did not attend all four years of high school at the same school. In this sample, high school student records including Grade 9 Math were available for 2363 (81%) of 2920 students; this includes 739 (78%) of the 953 students who went on to become community college freshmen (CC Freshmen). Row 1 describes the accelerated mathematics pathway most taken by all students. Row 2 describes the pathway most taken by community college-bound students: Algebra 1 or below in grade 9, no math in grade 12, no advancement beyond Algebra 2. Participation in alternative pathways drops off rapidly.
  • NOTE: All students at all levels.
  • Narrow definition of college-readiness.. Assessing into college-level coursework
  • After a lot of preliminary analysis, these are the variables I tested in a multinomial logistic regression to see which, if any, were significant predictors of placement in 1-, 2-, 3-, or 4-levels below college level mathematics. College level mathematics was the reference.
  • Discuss. What’s missing? Gender. Ethnicity. SES. Parent Ed…. Highest-level math. What can you tell me about the CAHSEE Math?However, Here you can see that Grade 9 Math and CAHSEE Math were significant predictors at all levels below college-level math; and that No Math in Grade 12 was a significant predictor at 2-,3-, and 4-levels below college-level, with a large effect. 58% more likely to place 2-levels below (into Algebra 1) if you took no math in grade 12.But the finding we want to highlight right now is the No Math in Grade 12. Students were 58% more likely to place 2-levels below (into Algebra1) than into college-level mathematics, all other factors being equal, if they took no math in grade 12.. Also a large effect for students who placed 3-levels below (into pre-algebra) and 4-levels below (into basic arithmetic).Thoughts? Comments?
  • p <.05, ** p < .01This table tells us that students who took no math in grade 12, all other factors in the model being equal, were almost 58% more likely to place 2-levels below college-level mathematics than into college-level mathematics! They were almost 50% more likely to place 4-levels below college-level mathematics than in college-level mathematics, other factors being equal.
  • 27% (750/2753) of students “passed” the CAHSEE…
  • Realize moving students up is easier said than done….not really low hanging fruit but….
  • p <.05, ** p < .01This table tells us that students who took no math in grade 12, all other factors in the model being equal, were almost 58% more likely to place 2-levels below college-level mathematics than into college-level mathematics! They were almost 50% more likely to place 4-levels below college-level mathematics than in college-level mathematics, other factors being equal.
  • So, now we know who didn’t take math --- disproportionately students going to community college, black and latino students, students with weak math skills
  • LOW HANGING FRUIT HERE --- Where students stop is of course related to when students stop. This table illustrates that the subset of students who matriculated to the community college under-performed the full class in terms of the highest-level of mathematics they attained. For all students, 63% took mathematics above Algebra 2, compared to just 46% of the CC Freshmen subset. Now look at the Algebra 2 column --- we see that 24% of all students and 37% of CC Freshmen did NOT advance beyond Algebra 2. AND 15% of all students and 23% of the CC Freshmen took Algebra 2 as their highest-level math course, in grade 11.Note.Highest-level mathematics course is the 12th grade mathematics course unless mathematics was not taken in grade 12, in which case it is 11th grade mathematics. Highest-level mathematics is not included for students who took no mathematics in grade 11 or 12.
  • This is in keeping with Adelman’s finding that every course beyond Algebra 2 doubles the odds of college completion. (This is why I am using Algebra 2 as a marker).Note. Highest-level math was NOT a significant predictor in this model.
  • Patterns of Progress: No Math in Grade 12 High School Mathematics Pathways and CAHSEE Math scores per Community College Placement Levels (N=903)Note. Tracking the above variables, there were 172 patterns for the 903 CC Freshmen who were assessed for college placement. There was no data missing for 741 or 82% of these students. The table above presents the 10 patterns most frequently followed by more than 10 students with no missing data who took no mathematics in grade 12. The high school paths correspond to those in Table 1.a CAHSEE Math assesses middle school competencies. Scores from 350-379 indicate Pass, 380 and above indicates students are Proficient or Advanced. * Grade 9 Math Class and CAHSEE Math Scores were significant predictors of community college placement level at 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-levels below college-level.** No Mathematics in Grade 12 was a significant predictor of community college placement level at 2-, 3-, and 4-levels below college level.
  • Plus is system of data that can be used by education stakeholders to improve outcomes along the education-to-workforce pipeline.
  • Although Cal-PASS has historically been known for being a data repository, we strongly believe that data must lead to action that improves outcomes for our students.Cal-PASS Plus is committed to working on these 3 primary initiatives.
  • We are currently developing a new more user friendly and actionable Cal-PASS Plus website. It is currently undergoing Beta testing and will be r
  • Cal-PASS Plus is a unique system of data because it has the ability to link data records from multiple segments of the college-career pipeline.This is very beneficial if we want to begin looking at how students progress through our pipeline and into college and the workforce.
  • Although horizontal conversation is a good starting place, it is often where we get stuck. Thanks to the linked data provided by Cal-PASS Plus, vertical articulation can be informed by a more comprehensive set of student outcome data. It can now focus on what happens to students as they progress from one segment of the pipeline to the next.This chart shows what happens to students when they leave a given high school district. Here we see the numbers of graduates who enrolled in community college or university within one year of graduating. By clicking on the segment , a viewer can drill down to see exactly which community colleges and universities were attended by the selected cohort of graduates. Viewers are also able to see a demographic breakdown for those students, by school attended.
  • This chart shows how many students are placed in college credit-bearing courses and how many are placed in remedial coursework (there is a math report and an ELA report) when they leave a given high school district. Although it’s not visible on this slide, much more detail can be accessed by expanding the fields online
  • Cal-PASS Plus is a unique system of data because it has the ability to link data records from multiple segments of the college-career pipeline.This is very beneficial if we want to begin looking at how students progress through our pipeline and into college and the workforce.
  • But even bright spots have challenges on the education pipeline. Proficiency does not always equal college readiness. Here is where a major disconnect occurs in our schools – leading to a high percentage of college remediation and hampering students’ ability to obtain a degree in a timely manner, and sometimes at all. Identifying challenges is the first step in addressing them and improving outcomes.

  • As indicated, our first initiative involves creating a shared pathway to college. College readiness preparation begins early in the education pipeline although its importance is often magnified in high school.As we look at the chart on the left, each left hand column shows us how students at one high school performed on the math CSTs compared to the top 10 comparable schools. Cal-PASS Plus data is not available for the purposes of “shaming” anyone—we want to highlight the bright spots so others can learn. For this reason, if you click on the bar showing the top 10 schools we can learn about them and learn from them. In this particular example, schools could be learning quite a bit from Cesar Chavez since they are outperforming their peers at every level.
  • Here is where collaboration comes in. Struggling schools are encouraged to learn from their higher performing peers in their area. Again, this is a K-12 example but Cal-PASS Plus will include information like this for community colleges and universities as well.
