Survey Support Services

Survey Development Consultation

The Office of Assessment can consult with academic programs to develop and revise surveys. Please contact Dr. Matt Serra ( to schedule an appointment to discuss your survey objectives. Please note that we require as much notice as possible, especially during busy periods of the year (e.g., at the end of the term).

Survey Software & Support

The Duke community is encouraged to use Qualtrics (, which is supported by the Office of Information Technology (OIT). Every member of the university community, including students, may access Qualtrics and use it for survey development.  We recommend that you visit OIT's description of Qualtrics for additional information and links to training workshops.  If you need assistance using Qualtrics, we recommend you visit Qualtrics University to view webinars, tutorials, and FAQs, or to submit questions. 

Undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to consult with the appropriate university personnel, including but not limited to their research mentors/supervisors, the Undergraduate Research Support Office, the Office of Student Activities and Facilities and the Dean of Students Office, to ensure their compliance with university policies and procedures.
