StrengthsQuest is a revolutionary student engagement program from the Gallup Organization that helps students focus on their strengths rather than their weaknesses. The program encourages students' awareness of their personal strengths potential, helps students approach all aspects of their achievement from a strengths-based perspective, and enables students to create actionable, strategic plans that use their greatest talents to build strengths.

StrengthsQuest includes the Clifton StrengthsFinder, which is an online assessment tool that reveals student's five greatest areas of talent, as well as a web site with interactive features such as action plans, discussion boards, and more. A nominal fee is charged for the Clifton StrengthsFinder  assessment.
