Online Survey and Data Collection

Looking for an online survey and data collection tool? Give Qualtrics a try! Qualtrics is licensed for Buffalo State faculty, staff and students.


All enrolled students may log in to Qualtrics to create surveys.  To publish surveys, students must work with a sponsoring faculty member or supervisor.  Faculty supervisors must approve the survey content, data collection, and data dissemination methods.  See the policy on Student Access to Institutionally Provided Online Data Collection Software for more information.


Important: All users of online data collection software are strongly encouraged to contact the Buffalo State Sponsored Programs office to ensure compliance with Buffalo State's Research Compliance policy, and federal regulations regarding human subjects.
