Interested in pursuing social science research, but not sure where to start? Come by the SSRMC's Survey Tools Workshop on March 14th from 5-7 PM in Blow Hall, Room 332 for more information on how to utilize the tools at your disposal. Professor Marcus Holmes and Professor Jaime Settle from the Government department will be providing an introduction to the software program to which W&M maintains an institutional license, Qualtrics. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the basics of the program ahead of time, and they will demonstrate a variety of its functionalities, including question and response randomization, recoding response options, automatic emailing capabilities, basic branching techniques, survey flow, usability, and testing/debugging. They will then address topics related to using Qualtrics as a platform to collect your data, including tips about how to interface with crowd-sourced platforms like Mechanical Turk.
