Originally designed for longitudinal clincial studies, RedCap is a mature survey system with several special features. It is slightly more difficult to get started with and does not have as many options as Qualtrics when it comes to question types or layouts. But, it still has everything you might need for research data collection.If you do not know what software to use, you can contact the Digital Scholarship Center (DiSC) at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the various options.
REDCap is available to all researchers at Mason, go to REDCap @ Mason and log in with your Patriot Pass username and password. That server is not authorized for sensitive surveys needing HIPPA or FERPA compliance. To request access to REDCap on a secure server, contact Matthew Hicks in CHHS.
TIP: Unless you really need one of these features, choose Qualtrics instead
