Surveys Home

Washington State University (WSU) offers employees and students the opportunity to conduct surveys, including faculty and student research, classroom activities, and program evaluation.  There are three approved tools to conduct a survey at WSU:

Qualtrics is the preferred online survey tool of WSU.  Qualtrics meets the stringent information security requirements not found in most free online survey tools, is easy to use, and offers many features and resources.  WSU has a campus site license for Qualtrics, and Qualtrics accounts are available at no direct cost to active students, faculty, and staff.

REDCap is a secure, online survey application hosted by WSU Health Sciences Spokane for faculty and students who need to meet additional health science research requirements. If you require assistance or have any questions about REDCap, please contact

Social and Economic Sciences Research Center (SESRC) is a fee-based, professional survey service for the University community and external clients.
