Please Note:

  • To avoid potential data collection problems, the ARL strongly suggests each client contact us prior to administering his or her survey. Once the survey is administered through Qualtrics, it becomes difficult to retroactively make changes to the survey and subsequent information derived from the collected data.
    • For example, the survey author must include identifiers when building the survey if cross-referencing the survey results with a secondary data source is a desired outcome.
  • Institutional Research Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) approval is necessary for surveys sent through Qualtrics.
  • Web-based surveys should be sent to samples of no more than 2,000 potential respondents. Samples of this magnitude are typically used in nationwide surveys. Exceptions to this will be considered on a case-by-case basis and only with appropriate justification for the exception request.
    • Requests for IUP e-mail addresses may be made to Jean Serio (, after IRB approval is given to the project.
