WPI provides two types of online survey platforms, Qualtrics and Microsoft Forms. Qualtrics is a sophisticated qualitative research solution that enables WPI faculty, staff, and students to easily create, distribute & analyze surveys. Qualtrics is the required tool for most research projects, as it is the approved collection tool for IRB due to data security. Microsoft Forms is a simple way to quickly create surveys, quizzes, and polls. Data can be exported and manipulated in Microsoft Excel.
