What is Qualtrics? How can I use it?
Qualtrics is a web-based survey software tool available for use by all Mt. SAC faculty, staff, and students. Qualtrics can be used to capture survey results from a publicly-available survey, or from users who are specifically given access to a survey. It may be used to
- Assist faculty, staff, and students with collecting data for research project or assignments
- Assess user satisfaction with academic or administrative programs or services
- Collect requests for services or assistance in place of a traditional HTML form etc.
Who Can Use this Software?
All Mt. SAC faculty, staff, and students have access to Qualtrics. Qualtrics requires the use of a Mt. SAC account to login. Individuals outside of Mt. SAC may complete a Qualtrics survey but they cannot login to access survey results.
Using Qualtrics in Your Class
Qualtrics may be used by faculty who require students as a part of class projects to create, distribute, and analyze the survey results.
