Distance and Continuing Education’s Group Decision Center and the NDSU Information Technology Division encourage faculty, staff and students to use Qualtrics for research and other data collection.
Qualtrics is a gold-standard data collection and analysis software that is approved by the N.D. University System and NDSU’s General Counsel. The addition of Qualtrics software at the Group Decision Center enables NDSU faculty, staff and students to use the tool at no cost. Outside agencies can use the software for a fee.
Qualtrics is widely used at over 1,300 major universities and by more than half of Fortune 100 businesses.
Compared to other online survey tools, Qualtrics offers more robust features in survey building, reporting, distribution, data organization and survey analysis.
"We anticipate NDSU faculty and researchers will adopt Qualtrics as a long-term replacement for other less secure and less robust survey tools," said Marc Wallman, NDSU interim vice president for information technology. "We encourage faculty to use Qualtrics and provide us with feedback regarding their experiences."
