For online surveys we use Qualtrics. School pays for the license.

    The expectation for any new user is that they try to build the survey themselves and once they finish, or if if they have difficulties building the survey they then book an appointment with the technician to go over it together.

    Note: the technician will not be answering general questions such as:

    • How do I build my survey?
    • What is Qualtrics?
    • I do not know how to do it e.t.c.

    Qualtrics users must show evidence that they have tried to build the survey themselves before meeting with the technician. This is a good skill to acquire and add to your CV.

    Link to create a free account:

    https://hwsml.eu.qualtrics.com (use your HWU email address otherwise it will not work –please create a password at least 10 characters long otherwise it will display an error).
    When creating an account, ignore the field that asks for an access code, just enter your HWU email address. Qualtrics will then send a verification email. Often this email lands in the Junk folder. Please check this folder too before you email me (it may take several minutes for the email to arrive).

    Note: If you plan to also use StReP to recruit participants contact the technician to link the the two together. Do not attempt to publish your survey before you follow this step.
