The Quest Forward Learning Management System (LMS) is a series of applications that power learning, mentoring, and content development. They can all be accessed in a web browser.
Quest Web App
Quest is a web application where students and mentors access the curriculum, resources, assessments, feedback from mentors, and more.
- Students use Quest to complete quests, share artifacts, receive feedback, and reflect on their own progression and growth. Quest contains assessments for academic learning and skills growth, and produces weekly and term reports and transcripts.
- Mentors use Quest to provide guidance and detailed feedback to students, access target dates and pacing data, and view dashboards detailing student performance and growth.
The LMS includes other tools as well, including QuestCommunity (for school leaders and counselors), and QuestMaker (for curriculum designers).

Access for Parents
Q: How do students and mentors access Quest for use in the classroom?
A: Quest is available at https://quest.questforward.org for both mentors and students. We recommend bookmarking this page on your web browser. Parents/guardians can access Quest too. Learn how here.
Q: What browser and device should your student use to access Quest?
A: Quest is supported on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox on Chromebooks and laptops. It can also be used on Apple Safari on iPads. Quest will not function well on Microsoft Internet Explorer/Edge.
Q: What is Aftersession and how does your student sign up for it?
A: Aftersession is a two week period after the end of the school year where students are able to sign up for additional classes. They can use these classes to recover credits or gain additional credits. The student would have to speak to the Director of Student and Family Services to discuss their eligibility for aftersession.
Q: What is my student’s username and password?
A: Each person’s username is their school email. Their password was emailed to them at the beginning of the school year. If they forgot their password, it can be reset from the Quest login screen.
Q: What should I do if my student can’t access Quest, has trouble with it, or thinks they found a software bug?
A: We have a support team that will help solve any issues you may have. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they’ll respond as quickly as possible! Include the browser that is being used, screenshots if possible, and as much information about the issue as possible.
Students and mentors can also check out the Help Center for a possible solution. The Help Center can be found at https://questforward.zendesk.com/hc/en-us. Use your Quest username and password to access the Help Center.
Q: Why do I sometimes see a green bar across the top of my screen that says “Some changes to Quest are available. Please save your work and update ASAP.”?
A: Periodically the Opportunity Education team releases updates to Quest including new features, updates to features, or fixes. Sometimes these require users to refresh the app in their browser, and this message bar lets mentors and students know they need to do this. If you’re in the middle of something, we recommend saving your work first. Then click the “Update Quest” button to log out and then log back in again. If it doesn’t seem to be working correctly after that, you may need to completely quit your browser and reopen Quest.
