What is Qualtrics Research Suite?

The Qualtrics Research Suite is a user-friendly, feature rich, web-based survey tool which allows users to build, distribute, and analyze online surveys, collaborate in real-time, and export data in multiple formats.

Who can use it?

Qualtrics Research Suite is available to all current Boston University students, faculty, staff and those with a sponsored Guest account.
