Qualtrics to Replace QuestionPro as UVa Online Survey Tool

ITS, in partnership with the Curry School of Education, the Darden School of Business, the Department of Psychology, the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, the McIntire School of Commerce, the Office of Institutional Assessment & Studies, the Quantitative Collaborative, the School of Law, the UVA Career Center, the Vice President for Information Technology, the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service/Center for Survey Research, and the Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics, is pleased to bring the Qualtrics Research Suite to UVA!

ITS has previously offered QuestionPro as the site-licensed online survey tool. QuestionPro WILL NOT be renewed past October 1, 2017, and Qualtrics will replace QuestionPro as the online survey tool at UVa. If you have been using QuestionPro you will need to export your data from QuestionPro to use in Qualtrics moving forward. Instructions for doing this are on our QuestionPro page.
