Qualtrics: Set-up Star ID Sign On to a Qualtrics Survey

Tags qualtrics


How can I verify the identify of someone completing a Qualtrics survey? How do I assure who in my class has completed a survey activity?  How can I verify who has completed a training in Qualtrics?


Adding an authenticator (Star ID sign on) to a survey flow will allow you to better verify the identity of who has taken your survey, including first name, last name, and email.

This is used primarily for training and educational/classroom use of Qualtrics. Sometimes there is a need to verify the identity of the participant, for example reporting who has completed a training.

First, access the Qualtrics Project you would like to add the authenticator to. Then:

  1. Click the Survey tab, and then click the Survey Flow option in that menu.
  2. Click +Add a New Element Here. Assure this is the first item in your project.
