Services & Products

The Quaglia Institute's services and products are designed to empower school and classroom communities to integrate the Aspirations Framework into their daily practices and environment. Our approach is distinguished by two keystones: the belief that educators must tailor the Framework to meet their unique needs, and a conviction that students are essential partners in the change process.

We provide the following research-based products to support the implementation of the Aspirations Framework:

  • Quaglia School Voice Surveys, iKnow My Class: The Quaglia School Voice suite of surveys, available for students, staff, and parents, measures the 8 Conditions within a school. iKnow My Class surveys are formative course assessments that help educators discover students' perspectives about themselves as learners, course content, and instruction. To see the impact voice has, view our Student Voice Impact data document.
  • Student Focus Groups: Focus groups are an important component of the Quaglia Student Voice effort in schools, as they allow educators to dig deeper into survey data and better understand students' perspectives. Free QISVA resources are available on our website. Please contact us if you would like experienced qualitative researchers from the QISVA staff to come to your school to help conduct focus groups.

  • Professional Development: A variety of opportunities are available to help educators analyze their school data and create plans to foster voice and aspirations. The Quaglia Institute works with schools to tailor workshops to meet their school's needs.
  • Quaglia Schools of Action: This professional learning model, developed by the Quaglia Institute for School Voice and Aspirations (QISVA), builds internal capacity and the ability to scale student voice work district wide in a cost and time effective way.
