Presentation: Findings from CAPR’s study of Dana Center Mathematics Pathways in Texas

Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) is an alternative model of developmental math that shortens students’ time in remediation, tailors course content to students’ career goals and academic paths, and uses student-centered instruction. CAPR studied how the DCMP model works and whether it resulted in better academic outcomes for students at four Texas community colleges.
