OIT is happy to announce that the university has signed a new five-year agreement with Qualtrics. Qualtrics accounts are available for no additional charge to active faculty, students, and staff for research, academic and administrative use. You can log in to Qualtrics with your NetID and password through the OIT Web Surveys portal. We have removed all response limits from existing Qualtrics accounts. OIT workshops for Qualtrics will start in June. Sign up today to reserve your seat.
The decision to re-establish a contract with Qualtrics comes after a rigorous evaluation of web survey providers and a formal competitive bid process as required by the state. A committee composed of faculty, students, and staff from all campuses evaluated the technical proposals on their merit. The committee agreed that Qualtrics was best positioned to help the university achieve its goals.
QuestionPro was made available in 2018 when Qualtrics pricing almost doubled, and UT sought a comparable yet more economical alternative. However, over the past four years, faculty, students, and staff have expressed that while QuestionPro can meet most survey needs, many necessary features are currently only available in Qualtrics. QuestionPro will remain available until May 31, 2022.
If you have questions or need help developing web surveys, please submit a request online or call the OIT HelpDesk at 865-974-9900 to set up an appointment with one of our staff.
