Finding data


Qualtrics is a powerful, full-featured web-based platform for creating, sharing and conducting online surveys. Berkeley provides access to all basic features of this software to all campus members. Several schools and departments maintain their own Qualtrics "brands", and the school-based/departmental brands may offer additional modules and features tailored to that discipline, above and beyond what is included in the UC Berkeley-wide instance.
