Qualtrics Surveys in Research: Analysing results

The Qualtrics Survey platform lets you create digital surveys. This guide gives information on how to implement Qualtrics in research in a thorough a save way.

Analysing survey results

Qualtrics automatically analyses your results and produces a standard report of your whole survey.  You can produce additional reports with filtering and customisation.

You can also export results to carry out further analysis using packages such as SPSS or Excel. You access your results using the "View Reports" tab from the Qualtrics toolbar. Below are some links to in-depth tutorials in the Qualtrics webpage:

Exporting data

You can export (another word for “download”) all of your participants’ responses to all the questions in your survey. When you export data from Qualtrics, you can save data to your computer for analysis in another software package, to share the file with a trusted colleague, or even to import back into another survey. Each row of the file is a different respondent, and each column is a question of the survey they answered, survey metadata (e.g. Recorded Date, IP Address, etc.), contact fields, and any Embedded Data you may have recorded for each respondent.
