At York there are two main survey tools on offer: Google Forms and Qualtrics. Use the tabs below to find out more about each:
Google Forms is part of the Google Apps for Education suite.
It is great for simple forms and surveys and has the benefit that the survey can be locked down to University of York members as a whole, as well as to specific individuals.
Responses can be fed in real time to a Google Sheet.
Qualtrics has far more question types than Google Forms, with advanced options when it comes to structuring and branching your survey. It can also use distribution lists and pull across embedded data from such lists while maintaining anonymous responses.
