Qualtrics is a browser-based survey software licensed by ECU. Qualtrics offers many advanced, but user-friendly features such as:
Qualtrics is available to all ECU faculty, staff and students who are faculty-supervised in a class or research setting. Our license allows for unlimited use of the software for legitimate ECU-related research and educational activities.
Are You a STUDENT Creating a Survey On Behalf of a Department/Faculty/Staff?
If YES, the survey should be owned by the faculty/staff person. As a student, you must be added as a collaborator on the survey. As a collaborator, you will still have the capability to create/edit the survey.
Prior to conducting research, are there any requirements I need to follow?
Yes. All survey distribution is subject to the University Institutional Review Board. You need to ensure you have met their criteria before conducting any research.
How do I get a Qualtrics account?
ECU official faculty, staff and students with a PirateID may self-enroll and create an account. You must use your PirateID credentials. Non-ECU accounts cannot be used. This account will be immediately available to create and distribute surveys.
If you are working on a survey with collaborators not affiliated with East Carolina University and would like them to share or co-author a survey, you can request your account to be modified to allow outside collaboration. Students are NOT permitted to collaborate outside.
The ECU faculty or staff person needs to call our Help Desk at 252-328-9866 / 1-800-340-7081 OR log onto the Online Help Desk and submit a Web Services request asking to collaborate outside.
Once this permission is turned on, you will receive an email confirmation that this has been completed, which includes a reminder of the terms and conditions. You are responsible for ensuring your outside collaborators are aware of our terms and conditions. You may then add your outside collaborators.
The new Qualtrics user interface was implemented October 5, 2015.
