Surveys and Course evaluations

Survey & Report is a survey system that can be used by staff at Linnaeus University for both research surveys and other types of surveys. The system has also been developed to be used for automated course evaluations.


Survey & Report is a powerful and multilingual survey system. After being procured by Sunet, it is also used at many other Swedish universities, often under the name Sunet Survey. The system is widely used by us at LNU for e.g. large research surveys, evaluations, application forms and the majority of LNU's course evaluations, etc.

Linnaeus University has together with Artisan, the company behind Survey & Report, developed a tailored solution for automated course evaluations at the university. Read more about the automation of course evaluations here.

A selection of the features in Survey & Report

  • Distribution of surveys can be done via e.g. email, link or QR code.

Additional functionality that can be purchased

Survey & Report continuously receives new functionality, which sometimes comes as separate add-on modules, which need to be purchased in addition to the agreement that Lnu has. If you are interested in any of the functions below for a research project, for example, send a case to for more information. The following additional functions are available today:

  • Distribution of surveys via SMS
  • Login to survey via BankID
  • Flow surveys (A chain of surveys that follow the same people over time: You can show respondents their own answers from previous surveys, and also pre-fill answers. The idea is that you have a panel survey, where at least some of the questions are the same over time.)
  • Transcribe spoken answers

Who has access to Survey & Report

Students do not normally have access to Survey & Report, as support for the system cannot be offered to students today. Students are advised to use other tools on the web, such as Google Forms, which students have access to through their student email. In individual cases, students can be given access to Survey & Report e.g. if the ethics committee sees a need for a system that can protect the respondents' information.
