Online Survey Tool Advisory Group


In March 2015, the Online Survey Tool Advisory Group was formed to gather input from the campus community regarding ongoing support and usage of the Qualtrics survey tool.


The purpose of the Online Survey Tool Advisory Group is to advise and provide recommendations on the implementation of the survey tool and the needs of its users, the University community, to the functional owner of the tool, the Center for Instruction and Research Technology. 

This includes:

  • Policies and processes for the dissemination of surveys
  • The increase in awareness of the existence, use, and policies of the tool by the university community
  • The development of mechanisms for requesting features and changes
  • Investigation of a certification program for the survey tool
  • Best practices for survey construction and delivery
  • Workshops and support materials

The group is composed of members of the following units:

  • The functional owner, CIRT (Dave Wilson)
  • ITS Integrated Systems Team (Scott Peden)
  • A&F/Communication and Training  (Alison Cruess)
  • IRB (Dawn O’Connor)
  • CCI (Tim Cheney)
  • SGA (Justin Sipes)
  • Faculty representatives (Nile Stanley, COEHS & Elizabeth Brown, COAS)

Qualtrics Feature Request Evaluation Process

Addition of new Qualtrics features are evaluated by the Online Survey Tool Advisory Group. Requests for these features can be submitted to the Advisory Board through the following evaluation process. Evaluations are typically completed within three months.
