Surveys: SurveyMonkey and Qualtrics

Our SurveyMonkey accounts will begin to expire on October 19,2014 and the process will continue through April 8, 2015. Please contact Academic Technologies if you have concerns regarding disruption in service. We will be creating all new surveys in Qualtrics beginning September 2014.

What you need to know about using Qualtrics:

Faculty, Staff, and Students have instant access to create surveys in Qualtrics as long as they are enrolled in courses or employed by the college. Here are a few important things you should know. 

Logging into your Qualtrics account:

1. Open up a web browser, type in, and log in with your Skidmore username and password. (This is the same account that you use to access your email.) You should see the following screen:
