Brief Introduction to UMSurvey

UMSurvey is an online survey tool managed by the U's central OIT. It is available to current students, staff, and faculty at the University of Minnesota. The tool provides a convenient way for instructors, staff and students to quickly design and administer surveys for academic purposes, administrative purposes, or simply for practices of survey designs.

The tool is simple to use, but yet powerful with a lot of features. You can create, implement,and analyze surveys using University templates, with research consultation from the Digital Media Center. UMSurvey even allows you to export the results to SPSS or MS-Excel to perform analysis of the results. Your survey can be anonymous and open to the public, or be restricted to only UMN members. It can be activated or deactivated easily. A survey you have created can by reused as many times as you want.
