Our Results



In 2019, preliminary longitudinal findings from the Texas Education Research Center show: 

 

Ascender students are more likely to graduate with workforce certificates, Associate's degrees and to successfully complete Bachelor's degrees than their statewide peers. 

 

They also pay a third less for their qualifications than the statewide average. 

 


2012-2013: From the very beginning, CTN's Ascender program showed dramatic results:

  • In the fall, 86% of our students passed the DevEd integrated reading and writing course (INRW) with a ā€œCā€ or better
  • The persistence rate from the fall INRW to spring ENG 1301 (credit-bearing course) was 85%
  • In the spring, 91% of our students passed ENG1301 with a ā€œCā€ or better.
  • Compared to a non-intervention group, we increased success rates by over 50%.
