Institutional Account with Survey Monkey
Effective immediately, use of Marywood University's general, institutional account with Survey Monkey will no longer be allowed for research involving human subjects (only research requiring review by the Institutional Review Board or Exempt Review Committee). This is due to security issues and the protection of human subjects.
While you may still utilize Survey Monkey's service for research, you will need to subscribe to a secure, personal account. Subscriptions at various levels are available and may last as long as the researcher desires. The type of account allowed will depend upon the nature of the research. Another approved site is REDCap.
