The Office of Institutional Research, Analysis, and Planning supports the faculty, staff, and students of the Bates community in the design, administration, and analysis of surveys.

Qualtrics is an easy-to-use, full-featured, web-based tool for creating and conducting online surveys. For information about setting up a Qualtrics account and using Qualtrics, please consult our Using Qualtrics guide.
