Tips for getting the most out of Qualtrics

  • Tip 1

Use authentication to ensure that responses come only from Wentworth community, or a specific role within the community - faculty, staff, student. The downside of this is that your survey will lose the anonymous functionality.

  • Tip 2

If you've leveraged Tip #1, you can automatically collect information about a logged in user including their name, email address, Wentworth ID number, and community role. This helps avoid survey fatigue by not asking questions we already know the answer to.

  • Tip 3

Use data validation techniques. By using the data validation feature and also replacing open-ended text boxes with selection lists, you can keep the results clean and avoid confusing duplicate answers.
