Qualtrics Survey Tool

Qualtrics is a web-based survey tool that allows users to quickly create, distribute, and analyze surveys – from basic to very complex – with no previous experience and little time to learn.

Available to current UVM Faculty, Staff, Students, and Temporary Employees

When accessed using a UVM account at qualtrics.uvm.edu, Qualtrics has been approved for handling and storage of all Protected University Information except Protected Health Information. If you need PHI in Qualtrics, contact us for consultation.

Getting Started

  1. Go to qualtrics.uvm.edu

    You must log in to Qualtrics from the UVM URL, qualtrics.uvm.edu, rather than the main Qualtrics site. UVM credentials will not work if accessed using the non-UVM URL.

  2. Log in with your UVM NetID and password, then Duo Multi-Factor Authentication.
    If you do not have MFA set up, see the Duo Multi-Factor Authentication guide to enroll a device.
  3. Click Create a project (or + in the same location in smaller browser windows).
  4. Click Survey.
  5. Click Get Started.

    This will bring you to the Survey Editor for your first survey. For more information on creating surveys and Qualtrics in general, see the guides linked below.


Require UVM Authentication for Survey Takers

You may find it necessary to require UVM NetID authentication for survey takers, the steps below will guide you through the process of adding authentication as a requirement.

  1. Log in to https://qualtrics.uvm.edu and select an existing survey, or choose to create a new survey.
  2. Select the Survey Flow icon, then click the Add a New Element Here link.
  3. Click the Authenticator button.

    It is important that the newly created Authenticator block is at the top of the Survey Flow. If needed, Move the block to the top of the Survey Flow.

  4. Enter the following settings:
    • Authentication Type: SSO
    • SSO Type: Shibboleth
    • Connection: UVM NetID without Duo Authentication or UVM NetID with Duo Authentication
  5. Apply the changes, then re-publish your survey.
  6. The survey will now prompt participants for NetID authentication.
