The Youth Program Quality Assessment (PQA), School-Age Program Quality Assessment and several extensions (STEM, Arts, Academic Climate, Health and Wellness) were designed to assess the quality of learning environments and to identify staff training needs. These are the field-leading quality assessments for out-of-school time organizations, in part because you and many others have found them useful. In the past, these instruments have only been available – at cost – from the Weikart Center at the Forum for Youth Investment. We are pleased to share these tools as pdf downloads, subject to the following recommendations and terms.
