Research Project Chart for more information on the difference between types of projects, including human subject research, class projects, program evaluations, and quality improvement projects. Class projects, program evaluations, and quality improvement projects would not require IRB review or approval. Please see this chart for more information when determining the best category for your project.

Qualtrics is a survey development tool that allows for easy survey creation and is a great resource for researchers who are using online surveys as part of their research project. Some features are listed below:

  • Subject recruitment: If a researcher needs a specific subject population to respond to their survey, Qualtrics can provide survey panel respondents for an additional charge. More information on Qualtrics project management is available on their website.

  • Anonymize responses: Qualtrics also has a feature to completely anonymize responses, so the subjects would never be identifiable. More information on the anonymize feature is available on their website
