You’ve been assigned a huge research project, or you need to poll the whole student body for the school paper. What do you do when the free survey tools you’ve found online just won’t cut it? SurveyMonkey offers a student discount on all their plans so students, faculty, and school staff can get the data they need.
How much is the SurveyMonkey educational discount?
The discount varies based on the service you sign up for. If you can get away with only 10 questions and 100 responses or less, than the Basic service is free. (Do this when you can!) When you need more than that, you have a few different options.
SurveyMonkey Select is probably the most flexible from a student perspective. If your project is short-term and you won’t be doing more big surveys in the future, it is the only plan with a monthly subscription option. Typically $26/month, for students it is $18/month. Features include:
- Unlimited questions
- Up to 1000 responses for free (additional responses are 15 cents each)
- Skip logic
- Data export and reports
- Team collaboration (available only if you subscribe to the annual plan at $156 and pay an additional fee per user)
The Gold plan offers all the features above for $204 annually, a discount of nearly 33% from its standard $300 fee. It also includes:
- File upload
- Statistical significance
- Text analysis
- Q&A piping (the ability to personalize questions based on a response)
- Question randomization
The Platinum plan is also available at a discount of $708 annually, down from $1020. However, the additional features are most beneficial for professors, businesses, and those working with highly sensitive data. The additional features include the ability brand your surveys and send people to your own website after completion. Another main feature is HIPAA-compliant safeguarding. (If you don’t know what that is and you think you might need it, ask your prof.)
