Cost-free, strengths-based program self-assessment

The Indiana Quality Program Self-Assessment (IN-QPSA) is our strengths-based self-assessment tool that allows users the opportunity to self-assess on their program performance based on the Indiana Afterschool Quality Standards.

In the IN-QPSA, users can create reports to compare year-over-year results, and aggregate results from multiple programming sites when applicable. The IN-QPSA includes downloadable surveys for staff, community partners, families, and youth, along with automated reporting to help track your progress over time.

Benefits

The IN-QPSA can help out-of-school time programs:

  • Identify and understand the factors that support or inhibit top performance
  • Use data to drive decision-making
  • Take action and make positive changes
  • Continue to grow, learn, and improve
  • Maximize positive impact for staff, youth, families, and communities

Looking to increase your efficiencies when completing your self-assessment? Check out our video series that explains how to maximize your IN-QPSA usage.

Recognition of quality leadership

Creating measurable positive change isn’t easy. By aligning with the Indiana Afterschool Standards and assessing your program using the IN-QPSA, you are demonstrating a dedication to supporting a brighter future for children and families across our state. 

We strive to recognize this kind of service and dedication to continuous program quality through the Quality Leader Badge. 

To earn a Quality Leader Badge annually, leaders are required to: 

  • Align with at least (1) set of Indiana Afterschool Standards or Specialty Standards, AND
  • Complete the IN-QPSA within the applicable program year.
