Liberty University researchers planning to conduct survey research limited to LU students, faculty, and/or staff are required to use Qualtrics. If a research study will involve surveying LU-affiliated participants and non-LU-affiliated participants, the researcher will not be required to use Qualtrics.

Qualtrics is web-based survey software that allows complex surveys to be easily constructed and distributed and provides powerful descriptive statistical reporting features. Results are available immediately upon survey closure. Tests as well as opinion and attitude surveys can be easily entered into Qualtrics and distributed via email and/or web links to the desired respondents.

Each academic department at Liberty has a Qualtrics coordinator available to assist faculty members, staff, and students needing to utilize Qualtrics. If you do not know whom your department’s Qualtrics coordinator is, please contact the IRB.
