Each session of each program is aimed to develop one specific competency. Thus, the 20-30 minute session is designed to develop one of the sub-competencies of the main competency . The sub-competencies are transformed into learning objective(s) for the individual session and adapted to the student’s level of development (from beginner to expert).
The content of the sessions takes into account the latest research and empirical work on the targeted sub-competency.
The content and format of the programs in general are based on the latest research in the field of education, developmental psychology and learning sciences. All the program content is submitted for the rigorous evaluation to the members of Beyond Education’s research department.

- Quantitative analysis using the Beyond Education validated questionnaire the Competences Calculator or in is scientific name the 21st Compound Competences Inventory (CCI-21) and Competences Checkbox Inventory (CBI) to monitoring their progress on the competences which are targeted in each program
- Qualitative analysis using answers to reflective questions included in every session, that assess student understanding of the sub-competency
- Both Quantitative and qualitative analysis on students learning, satisfaction and motivation to participate to those program based on a questionnaire (quantitative) and an final interview (qualitative), as User Experience is a big part of a program success
