The University of Pittsburgh has purchased a site license that permits all faculty, students, and staff to access Qualtrics -- a premiere web-based system for preparing surveys, at no cost.  Join Chris Ryan as he discusses how to use the Qualtrics system in your research.  Because of the well-established data security features of this system, all new IRB submissions that include web-based surveys will be required (with few exceptions) to use Qualtrics after March 1, 2014

Access to Qualtrics will soon be available from the My Resources link on
