UT is in the process of migrating its enterprise site license from Qualtrics to QuestionPro. The feature set of our QuestionPro Enterprise Team Edition license is very similar to that of Qualtrics. Those features are described on the QuestionPro Features Page. Faculty, staff, and students at all UT campuses can log in to QuestionPro using their NetID and password by clicking the button below.
A good way to learn QuestionPro is by following the step-by-step instructions on the company’s help web page. They also offer live online assistance (5×24) via a chat window that is available as you’re designing your survey. The company also offers one-hour live online training courses every week. OIT will also be offering webinars via Zoom, and we will make recordings of those webinars available to watch any time. On the UTK campus, OIT will teach QuestionPro workshops live, as usual.
Important Qualtrics to QuestionPro migration dates:
January 1, 2019: New Qualtrics accounts will have maximum survey responses set to 100. This will allow classes to continue to use it for teaching while minimizing costs. Existing Qualtrics accounts will continue working as usual.
March 1, 2019: No new Qualtrics accounts will be created. Existing accounts will continue working as usual.
September 30, 2019: Enterprise Qualtrics license will end. Departments or individuals wishing to continue using Qualtrics will need to pay for their own license.
UT faculty, students, and staff and can use Qualtrics for university-related work such as academic projects which may serve research (instructional or academic) and administrative purposes. The account may not be used for corporate (consulting that benefits an outside organization), personal, or “for-profit” purposes. Such projects would include surveys that are not related to academic research or institutional research. Note that unlike Qualtrics, QuestionPro surveys can be used for any purpose, even for assisting outside organizations.
When you create your Qualtrics account, it will be set up as a Basic Account. If you wish to learn more about the Advanced Account, you can contact our office for more information.
SUPPORT FOR QUESTIONPRO AND QUALTRICS
OIT’s Research Computing Support team has over 10 years of experience in building and administrating online surveys as well as providing full statistical consulting services. We are available to examine your survey to ensure that it is optimized for data collection on the web. We also offer an overview of how to use the software when you first get started as well as assistance in building more difficult surveys. To request an appointment for assistance with online surveys or data analysis, please contact the OIT Helpdesk online or at 865-974-9900.
If you have advanced data collection needs, especially those required for longitudinal clinical trials, you may be interested in REDCap. It is a secure web application for building and managing both online surveys and databases. While REDCap can be used to collect virtually any type of data (including 21 CFR Part 11, FISMA, and HIPAA-compliant environments), it is specifically geared to support online or offline data capture for research studies and operations.
UT’s Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBMI) at the Health Science Center in Memphis allows UT researchers at all campuses to use their REDCap server free of charge. However, if CBMI’s assistance is needed in setting up a complex REDcap project they will charge by the hour for support. Below is the process to request access to REDcap.
- Complete CBMI service request form
- Meet with CBMI Data Manager (Optional)
- Program Administrator/Manager will provide standard scope work to project owner/PI
- Project owner/PI will agree to the scope of work by email
- Data Manager will provide access to REDcap to set up the project
