Qualtrics Survey Software - September 14, 2015

Information Services has secured a site license for Qualtrics, a comprehensive, powerful online survey tool.  Any SCU student, faculty member, or staff member can use it and it comes with great support from Qualtrics.
 
When can I use it?
 
Today!  Qualtrics is available now.
 
How do I get set up?
 
To enroll yourself, go to:
 
scu.qualtrics.com 
 
Follow the prompts to set up your account.  Your ID will be your SCU email address and you can set your own password.
 
If you already had a free Qualtrics account using your SCU email, contact support@qualtrics.com and ask them to migrate your account and existing surveys to SCU’s Qualtrics instance.
 
What happens to the survey system I use now?
 
Feel free to use what you are accustomed to.  Give Qualtrics a try, though, it is very user-friendly.  Also we envision a vibrant SCU community user group evolving as a resource and sounding board for using Qualtrics.
 
Is there anything I need to be careful about?
 
Some surveys must be reviewed by the Office of Research Compliance & Integrity and SCU’s Institutional Review Board (IRB).  Guidance can be found on the Research Compliance website:
