Student Outcomes Project

Measuring the Impact of Quality

Dallas Afterschool is dedicated to measuring the impact of our programs on afterschool quality as well as its impact on student attendance, academic achievement, and social and emotional health.

Our objective is to continually improve our services and identify the practices that have a direct impact on children and replicate those across our partner sites. This research is the first of its kind in Texas and will greatly support our impact on programs and students.

Dallas Afterschool is proud to partner with the Center on Research and Evaluation (CORE) at Southern Methodist University for data analysis and interpretation of results.
