    To ensure that every survey created at UCCS is accessible to individuals using screen readers and other assistive technology, UCCS only enables question types in Qualtrics that are accessible to assistive technology users. Inaccessible question types include any question that requires the user to use drag and drop, has a slider, or requires interaction with graphics. Using accessible question types ensures that individuals with low vision, blindness, or other disabilities will be able to complete your survey, as well as ensuring you are acting in accordance with the university’s Disability Access and Accommodation Policy.

    The inaccessible question types that have been disabled are listed below. All inaccessible question types will appear greyed-out in Qualtrics.


    • Graphic
    • Slider
    • Rank Order
    • Matrix - (Bipolar and Maxdiff)
    • Constant Sum
    • Pick, Group, and Rank

    Exception Requests

    Exceptions may be granted if you have a business or research need to send a survey that is inaccessible and/or that contains inaccessible question types. If an exception is needed for multiple students in a course, the request must be submitted by the professor on behalf of the students. Contact your brand ambassador for an Exception Request.
