At present TADA follows up on its impact in various ways.
TADA is first and foremost collecting basic data on the TADA target group. A thorough knowledge of this group is a prerequisite to reaching them. This knowledge is also the basis for the development of a policy benefiting attendance and preventing dropout.
TADA also puts a strong effort into practical observations and qualitative research. TADA measures its impact indirectly through the eyes of as many stakeholders as possible (children, alumni, parents, school teachers, guest lecturers, among others). Via feedback surveys and in-depth interviews, research is done on the effects of TADA on intentional and non-intentional beneficiaries.
Finally, TADA is currently working intensely on quality control and monitoring of the Saturday classes.
A first master thesis has been published in 2015. In 2016 TADA will deepen its impact measurement policy in collaboration with Vlerick Business School. More information regarding past or future research to be done, can be requested for: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Students who would like write their Master thesis on TADA will be invited for an interview where they will be asked to present previously conducted research papers.
