National Quality Program Standards (NQPS)

The National Council for Agricultural Education is pleased to release a new electronic survey tool to help local agricultural education programs analyze their program and identify specific growth targets. The new tool is based upon the contents of the latest version of the National Quality Program Standards for Secondary Agricultural Education released in 2016.

Using the survey tool, educators can engage their advisory committees and other stakeholders in an analysis of the overall health of the agriculture education program in seven areas.

  • Program Design and Instruction
  • Experiential, Project, and Work-Based Learning Through SAE
  • Leadership and Personal Development Through FFA
  • School and Community Partnerships
  • Marketing
  • Certified Agriculture Teachers and Professional Growth
  • Program Planning and Evaluation

In addition, the application includes a growth planning tool, which automates the process of determining priorities and building an action plan to enrich specific aspects of the local program. The newly revised version of the National Quality Program Standards is now available on The Council Website
