Qualtrics is online survey software for creating and administering electronic surveys. The University of Wisconsin - La Crosse subscribes to this service for its faculty and staff, and employees of the University may request limited access for students for educational purposes or for student employees. You have all been recently granted access to Qualtrics to be used only for BUS 230, and only as instructed. Any unauthorized usage of Qualtrics is extremely serious, and as such will result in removal of your access to the software, and failure for your entire project grade.
In this class you will take your survey questions which you have already prepared and create your online survey. There are features in Qualtrics that you may need to include in your survey, including "display logic" and "skip logic" which allow you to only ask questions if appropriate, and based on answers from previous questions. For example, if you find out someone does not have any brothers or sisters, you should skip the next questions that ask for their ages. Click on both links below to 1) login to Qualtrics and 2) access the online tutorial (Qualtrics University).
