Qualtrics @ U of M

Qualtrics is the preferred online survey tool of the University of Minnesota because it meets stringent information security requirements not found in most free online survey tools. Qualtrics enables the University to conduct online surveys for research, assessment, and administrative purposes. From simple to complex surveys, Qualtrics has a range of features to meet survey creation and distribution needs, and provides data storage and analysis.

Some of the great features Qualtrics provides include:

  • Secure authentication using a UMN Internet ID
  • Ease of use with point-and-click survey building
  • Advanced capabilities, including unique survey questions, branching, piping, and trigger-based responses
  • A collaboration feature which enables multiple users to work synchronously on shared surveys and data
  • Ability to download data into Excel or SPSS with the full syntax retained
  • Help and support provided by Qualtrics, including live training

The University has a campus site license for the Qualtrics survey application. License fees are covered by IT funds. Qualtrics accounts are available at no direct cost to active students, faculty, and staff.
