Qualtrics survey software has several uses at the university:

  1. Course requirements: students may need access to Qualtrics as a requirement for a course.
  2. Academic research: faculty conduct surveys that may need to be approved by institutional review board (IRB), or their results may contain sensitive and private data or be subject to HIPPA compliance.
  3. Administrative surveys: staff in various offices of the university and the Medical Center conduct surveys to make administrative decisions.
  4. Event registration: several people with Qualtrics accounts use it as a tool to register people for events and seminars.
  5. Proposal/Grant Submission and Review: some staff use Qualtrics to manage and review proposals and grants.

Qualtrics offers its own robust customer service and training resources through knowledge base articles on its website at http://www.qualtrics.com/university/researchsuite/. Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to first use these resources as they interact with the software or if they have a question that is beyond the scope or knowledge base of OSU staff.

This site has been established to provide one location from which faculty, staff and students can obtain basic information and access to resources for Qualtrics use at Ohio State.
