UW-Superior participates in the UW System licensing agreement with Qualtrics which provides access to UW-Superior faculty, staff, and students to create and administer surveys and gather and analyze results. Before you launch your survey (distribute or open it to participants), you must have approval from the Institutional Review Board. You have two options for obtaining permission to conduct online research:
- Submit your survey questions to the IRB for approval before you begin using the survey tool (Qualtrics), or
- Design your survey within the tool (Qualtrics), test it, and print out the questions without activating the survey and submit them to the IRB.
After obtaining IRB approval (if necessary), contact Institutional Research to activate your survey distribution rights in Qualtrics.
