Qualtrics is an cloud-based platform for creating and distributing web-based surveys. It can be used on any internet-connected computer.
Many pay-only features of other commercial survey softwares are available automatically to Kent State Qualtrics users.
For Kent State University faculty, staff, and employees: As of 2016, University Communications & Marketing's Web Team recommends that all web forms are created in Qualtrics instead of Google Forms or Drupal forms.
Kent State University maintains a site-wide license for Qualtrics. All Kent State faculty, staff, and students can access Qualtrics by navigating to kent.qualtrics.com and logging in with their Kent State username and password.
If you are using the default "Qualtrics 2014" theme, use the Kent State-themed CSS from the University Communications and Marketing Web Team.
If you are using the "Minimal 2014" or "Boxed Questions" themes, you can use our Kent State-themed CSS, which was adapted from Qualtrics's code for those templates. You are welcome to use this code chunk as a starting point for customizing your own surveys. This code has only been tested and will only work as intended when used with the Boxed Questions or Minimal 2014 templates as a base.
If you are modifying or developing your own template(s), you can download the approved Kent State logos and color palettes from kent.edu/brand.
All Kent State University faculty, staff, and students have access to Qualtrics at no charge. To log in to your Kent State Qualtrics account, go to kent.qualtrics.com and log in with your FlashLine user name (no @kent.edu) and password. All Kent State users must login to Qualtrics at kent.qualtrics.com.
If you are unable to access your Kent State Qualtrics account, or need assistance migrating surveys and data to your Kent State Qualtrics account from another account, contact Aaron Near (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Qualtrics admin for Kent State.
