Boston University has something new to offer those who use a survey tool to conduct research or course evaluations, offer tests and quizzes, get student feedback, and analyze data.   A group of IT Partners from SED, CAS, ENG, SMG, and BUMC, together with IS&T, have purchased a site license for Qualtrics, a highly advanced yet easy to use survey tool.  This means you should not have to pay for your own or a department survey tool license as long as the site license is renewed.  It’s provided at no charge — to students, faculty, staff, students, even guests sponsored by a department.

To access Qualtrics, visit www.bu.edu/qualtrics and enter your BU login name and Kerberos password.  On-line, you can create a survey, collaborate with others in and outside the University, distribute to anonymous or invited participants, view results, and build reports. Response has been very good.  It’s a simple and productive tool.  Introductory courses are now offered; you can sign up online.
