Qualtrics Survey System Overview

Dear Researchers and Survey Authors,

In the Fall of 2008, Purdue University licensed a professional survey system named Qualtrics. Qualtrics is a centrally funded professional survey system available to all Purdue faculty / staff / students. Qualtrics can easily create both simple and highly complex surveys using various types of questions including: likert scale, multiple choice, essay, heat map, and many other question types. We think you’ll find it easy to use and feature rich. Feel free to create an account and begin looking around the system.

To get signed up for a Qualtrics account, go to the following link:
