Qualtrics Survey Software

Who Can Use this Software?

All Purdue faculty, staff, and students have access to Qualtrics; Qualtrics requires the use of the Purdue career account to login.  Individuals outside Purdue may complete Qualtrics surveys but cannot login to access survey results.

Using Qualtrics In Your Class

Qualtrics may be used by faculty who require students as part of class projects to create, distribute, and analyze the results of surveys. 

Setting Up a Qualtrics Account

When you access Qualtrics for the first time, you will be required to set up an account.  You will need to enter your first and last name, along with your email address, career account username, and career account password.  This will set up your account with Qualtrics; after this, you will only need to log in using your career account username and password.  Please keep in mind that the career account username and password are case-sensitive.
