Qualtrics is the university’s licensed on-line survey creation tool. It is primarily used for research purposes, but it can also be used in teaching scenarios such as class revision or feedback. From basic polls to complex surveys integrating websites and pop-up windows, Qualtrics is a highly flexible tool with a range of uses.
Qualtrics is an online questionnaire creation tool and is the supported platform for this activity at Victoria. In its core use, it allows a user to create a questionnaire using a variety of question types. It can be previewed and then sent to the target audience via a variety of means such as a web link or an email. Once responses are received, the user can then access responses and download them for analysis. Qualtrics also offers its own report creation tool, allowing the user to create graphs and tables based on the responses without needing a 3rd party program such as Excel or SPSS.
Qualtrics has a simple interface that is easy to learn, but has a lot of extra features that are under the hood. For example, you can control how respondents move through your questionnaire and program what will appear next based on their responses. You can choose which sections respondents must complete and which they can skip over. These are only a few examples but there are many more features that can be customised to suit your needs.
Qualtrics is not just restricted to surveying and it can be adapted to fit a range of purposes. For teaching purposes, the tool has been used to collect weekly feedback on teaching. In learning applications, the tool has been used to create short quizzes which self-mark and exercises which can be embedded in webpages.
