Quality Survey Design

Qualtrics offers the easiest user interface of all survey solutions. The entire system is based off of a point-and-click edit system that rivals the simplicity of drawing on a white board. There are over 85 question variations, timing of response latency (down to the millisecond), randomization on three levels, email triggers, multimedia capability and much more.

Within Qualtrics, users can create simple questions or advanced branching and skipping with just a few mouse clicks. This saves users time and allows them to focus on their research.

Advanced Distribution

Qualtrics offers several modes of delivery to get surveys to an audience. It also offers the ability to track panels so that researchers can record who answered the surveys, when and how often. Users can also schedule reminder and thank you emails that are only sent to those who have, or have not, taken the survey.

Impressive Reporting & Analysis

Qualtrics Research Suite lets users analyze data as it is collected and pre create reports with 24 graphs, charts and tables that will populate in real time. Qualtrics provides a one-step direct download in SPSS. Users can also download their raw data into CSV, XML or HTML. All reports can be exported to PowerPoint, Word or PDF.

Full Collaboration between Colleagues & Students

Qualtrics allows users to collaborate across accounts on projects. This means professors can share limited or complete access to individual studies, without giving away full access to their accounts. This is useful for working with graduate assistants or other professors, and for sharing preliminary findings among colleagues. It will also open the door to allow USU to collaborate with other universities around the world.
