Hawaiʻi P-20 Partnerships for Education and the Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) recently collaborated with other subject matter experts to better understand Hawai‘i’s student math outcomes and predictors of those outcomes throughout the education to workforce pipeline. Many math skills build upon each other and once students fall behind, it is difficult for them to catch up. Proficiency continues to be an obstacle in college with non-proficient students starting behind their peers in below-college-level math courses. A closer look at the impact low math skills have over time may provide information on when interventions may be the most impactful.
