Qualtrics Online Survey

What is Qualtrics?

It is a web based, research surveying software. The software allows for the creation of online surveys which can be distributed bearing the UNO logo.

Who is eligible to use Qualtrics?

Qualtrics online survey software is available to UNO faculty and staff as well as students, when supervised by faculty, in a class or research setting. Our license allows for unlimited use of the software for legitimate UNO related research and educational activities. However, it may not be used for non-UNO purposes and or commercial business. All survey distribution is subject to current University Institutional Review Board policy which is located at http://www.humansubjects.uno.edu.

How do I get a Qualtrics account?

To use the software, anyone with a UNO email address may self-enroll and create a limited access account at https://neworleans.qualtrics.com. This account will be immediately available to create a limited number of surveys, but it will not allow for their distribution. Faculty and staff may email the help desk at helpdesk@uno.edu to upgrade their account to full access to distribute surveys.

How do I request a Qualtrics account for my students to conduct research?

If faculty would like accounts for their students, they may email a request to the help desk and will receive "coupons" that will allow students access for a period of one semester. Faculty may request a longer duration coupon for doctoral students or other students assisting faculty on a research project. Upon expiration of a coupon, the student account will revert back to limited access which will still allow the student access to the survey and data collected.

What is a coupon and how can my students use it?

A coupon is used to appoint permissions and the amount of time a student has access to Qualtrics to conduct research. A coupon code will be given to faculty, once they have emailed a request to the Help Desk, to give to their students to input when they create their account.
