What Is CliftonStrengths for Students?
CliftonStrengths for Students (formerly StrengthsQuest) helps students grow confident in who they are and how they can contribute to the world.
It's an educational program that uses Gallup's world-renowned CliftonStrengths assessment to measure 34 research-validated talent themes. It then guides the development of those talents into strengths with resources tailored for students.
More than 22 million people know what makes them unique and how their strengths shape their approach to work, decision-making, relationships, and more. By focusing on what students do best, educators can individualize learning, support wellbeing and prepare students for the workplaces of tomorrow.
Why Schools Use CliftonStrengths for Students
More than 700,000 students discover and develop their strengths each year, because more than 1,000 colleges and universities know the value of strengths-based learning.

And it's not just for students. Educators and staff who know what they do best and develop their own strengths are more engaged at work and better equipped to foster transformational learning experiences.
Because that's what education is for -- changing lives and changing the world.
