Trailside Overview

Indicators of School Quality (ISQ) is a comprehensive survey system used to evaluate and monitor school improvement and accreditation efforts. It summarizes the perceptions of parents, teachers, students, and other school staff regarding more than 30 crucial characteristics of the school. ISQ was developed by Utah State University’s Center for the School of the Future.

ISQ reports come in three varieties and are easy to read and easy to apply. They provide information on the status of the school learning environment, progress from year to year, as well as normative information about how a school compares to similar schools as well as the support of professional behavior and appropriate student behavior.
