Survey Central: A Survey Infrastructure

Alvin Sherman Library 1054

Would you like to be able to create and publish a professional survey in minutes? Are you tired of begging someone, anyone, to develop a survey website for you?

Or are you a developer who cringes at the thought of designing and administering yet another survey website? One that you are secretly sure nobody will ever use?

There is now a solution that can satisfy everyone! This presentation will be on Survey Central, a single website that removes the need to re-invent the wheel for every new survey. With one website, students can create surveys for their own use, and faculty or administrators can create official surveys for campus-wide events. Unlike other survey websites available on the Internet, Survey Central is free to all NSU students (and their friends), supports multiple questions, and contains no advertising.

This presentation should be of particular interest to students who need to give quick surveys to their class, school administrators who need to periodically create new surveys (e.g., on graduating seniors, term scheduling, class evaluations, etc...), and anyone who is interested in seeing how a database-driven website works.

This presentation will discuss how Survey Central can work for you, its most important and unique features, and some details on the database design.
