- What is Qualtrics?

- dozens of sample surveys on various topics to customize for your own use
- integrated graphics and statistical tools
- ability to download data into Excel or SPSS with the full syntax retained
- How do I access Qualtrics?
Use of Qualtrics software requires an account. You must use the link below to request an account to be created for you. If you go to the public Qualtrics website and create a trial account, any surveys you create, or data you collect, will not be accessible from the the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Qualtrics site.
To request a Qualtrics account, fill out the following form: Qualtrics Account Request Form
If you already have a Qualtrics account, click the following link to access the Qualtrics login page: Qualtrics Login *
*To access your account, log in using your Extension active directory (AD) password. Your active directory (AD) username is the first part of your Extension e-mail address (ex. jrobinson). Your AD password is the current password you use when logging into many of our Extension online systems.
- Process for obtaining a Qualtrics account?
To begin using Qualtrics to create surveys, you must Request a Qualtrics account.
In order to qualify to receive a full Qualtrics account, you must first successfully complete the five-part Qualtrics “Learn Qualtrics in 5 Steps” online tutorial. A trial account will be created for you in Qualtrics to use to complete the exercises that are included in the tutorial. Click here to access the tutorial modules. The tutorial will require approximately 1-2 hours (+/-) to complete. (You do not have to complete the tutorial in one sitting.)
More detailed instructions will be sent to you once your trial account has been created. Once you have successfully completed the online tutorial and your tutorial project reviewed, your trial account will be upgraded to a full Qualtrics account. You will be notified once this step has been completed.
To access your trial account, go to https://uaex.qualtrics.com and log in using your Extension active directory (AD) password.
Note: the trial Qualtrics account is limited in terms of the type and number of surveys you can create and the tools that are available to you. If you do not complete the tutorial and quiz within 30 days, your trial account will be deleted from Qualtrics. If that occurs, you will need to reapply for a Qualtrics account. DO NOT CONDUCT A LIVE SURVEY UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A FULL QUALTRICS ACCOUNT!
