Introduction to Online Surveys & Questionnaires

If you are using an online survey or questionnaire, you will need to create your survey and have it ready before submitting your IRB application. You will provide your survey link within the IRB application so that the IRB member can open and test the survey. The survey link you provide should not require the IRB to login or use any special permissions in order to view the survey.

Do I have to use a specific survey platform?

NCU researchers have free access to Qualtrics through NCU. Researchers who use Qualtrics can take advantage of the Qualtrics Consent Review Service, in addition to other resources available on our website. To request a free Qualtrics account, email your name and NCU email address to the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (

Researchers can choose to use other survey platforms as long as they are secure. However, researchers who use other platforms are responsible for formatting their own consent letters to meet all NCU IRB requirements.
