Mason currently has a site license for Qualtrics, a research-grade software that is also easy-to-use. Students should be able to have their own accounts--contact the administrator for your department to determine what instructions you should give. For small classes, have the students add you as a collaborator. For large, recurring classes, you may want to request administrator permissions yourself.
