ASSET Service Retirement -
New Qualtrics Survey Service Available

Beginning August 9, 2010, the BCTC will begin phasing out the ASSET service at Baruch College. The college has identified Qualtrics as the new supported online survey tool and we ask that you begin using it for all future online surveys. The college will discontinue support of the ASSET service and shut down public access to the application on December 13, 2010, or as soon as all current users are able to migrate their existing surveys. An email regarding the phase out will be sent to all current ASSET account holders.

The Qualtrics survey software offers many options that are not available in ASSET, including HTML editing for formatting of text and embedding of images, numerous question types, skip logic, custom reports, survey and data sharing/collaboration, and advanced survey distribution and management tools.

To get started with Qualtrics, go to and create an account for yourself using your Baruch College email address ( After creating your account and logging in, you will see the My Surveys page. From here you can select the Create Survey icon and begin creating your survey.

The BCTC will be providing training workshops (see the BCTC training workshop schedule) for the Qualtrics survey throughout the Fall 2010 semester. In addition, the BCTC can provide assistance with the migration of existing ASSET surveys (sign-up form for one-on-one ASSET Survey Migration and Qualtrics training).
