Discovery Commons

Online Surveys

Service Description

Discovery Commons can create online surveys based on Fluid Surveys for a variety of purposes. Our application development staff will create assessments and surveys based on specifications and templates provided by the client, and will also facilitate access to the resulting data. There is no per-survey or licensing charge; however, there will be an hourly charge to cover staff time. The amount of time required will vary depending on the complexity of the survey.

Discovery Commons’ Fluid Surveys license expires September 2017 and we will suspend our online survey creation service until a replacement survey solution has been procured and implemented by the University. Clients who wish to create their own surveys, without the involvement of Discovery Commons must purchase their own account with a survey provider. We do not recommend that any form of high stakes assessment or the collection of protected information be conducted through surveys. According to the Faculty’s Information Risk Management Program, protected information is defined as:

· Personal Information
· Personal Health Information
· Payment Card Information
· IT System Administrator access to information and information solutions / infrastructure (such as root or administrator passwords)
· Other data with externally-regulated protection requirements (such as legal data)
