BP Talks VERY short here; each pathway is covered in more detail in the next 3 slides.

0.83 solution coverage is good. It means that the three pathways explain 83% of the cases, or all but one of the states. 4 out of 7 states follow this, and there are two MORE states that DON’T follow this pathway and DON’T have the outcome of equity, so they are said to be included in the model here.

Consistency is “the extent to which a causal combination leads to an outcome” (Elliott, 2013). “If you have a super high consistency, but your coverage is super low, then your solution isn’t that compelling because it doesn’t describe many cases at all.” (Elliott, 2013, p.6) We have a low-ish consistency but we also have a low number of cases in general.

For fuzzy sets, it is calculated a bit strangely and doesn’t make sense if you are looking at just what is on the screen. You have to know what is in the table, because it uses the MINIMUM values within each column. It is calculated as the sum of the (MINIMUMS of the (membership score for causal combo) and Y is the MINIMUM of the (membership score for the outcome set)) taken and divided by the sum of the X.

Then we chose a cutoff of 0.8, which is acceptable (Ragin 2007).

High consistency means that combination almost always leads to the outcome, and it is 1.0 in all three configurations. These pathways were consistent in yielding equity. S & H BOTH had constancy and routines, and equitable progress. Thus it has a 1.0 consistency.

Coverage is for ONLY the rows that fit the solution, and it “represents how many cases with the outcome are represented by a causal condition” (Elliott, 2013, p.5). It is calculated using fuzzy-set MINIMUMS from the Truth Table, so the math is not straightforward. It is calculated by taking the sum of the [ (MINIMUMS of the X or (membership score for causal combo) and MINIMUM of the Y or (membership score for the outcome set)) ] taken and divided by the sum of the Y or membership score for the outcome set.

If you have constancy in leadership you get two pathways + routines OR +infrastructure

These are alternate pathways hwo states got here.

If you don’t have a lot of PD TIME then focus on infrastructure, then think about

If you’re new and have a lot of turnover you have to hang your hat on collective efficacy
