Have you ever wondered if there is a way to create an assessment that will fit exactly what you have been teaching your students? Well, you are in luck!
With our Google Drive accounts we have the ability to create a form, that allows you to make your own questions and record student responses in a nice, neat spreadsheet.
I made a few forms to relate to most subject areas. Click the assessment first, then click to see your responses.
|Social Studies Rome Quiz||Social Studies Responses|
|Math Google Form||Math Responses|
|Foreign Language Google Form||Foreign Language Responses|
|Science Google Form||Science Responses|
|Reading Log Google Form||Reading Log Responses|
- You will save time Grading.
- Integrate Technology into your lessons (STEM).
- No Paper!
- Instant Feedback for you and your students!
- Easy to Re-Use in the future.
- Create meaningful homework on knowledge of a topic.
- Multiple forms of questioning.
- Can help “Flip” Your classroom
How do you use it?
- Login to Google Drive( drive.google.com)
- Click Create> Form (pic right)
- Form will open (below)
Customizing your Form
- Name your Assessment ( students will see this as the name of the assignment. so make it specific!)
- Check the appropriate Form Settings. The first two checkboxes make sure that you make the students log into google and record their name when then use their form (no more no-name papers! Actually, with their email addresses you can email them, their grades)
- Shuffle Question order: Re-orders questions for all students (perfect for multiple choice questions).
When you create your form, your first question will be created as well. You can edit the question as follows:
- For Question Title you can type in the question you wish to ask.
- For Help Text you can add additional directions or clarification for the question.
- For Question Type you can choose between nine different types of questions (explained later).
- If the question type needs a list of answers (such as multiple choice or checkboxes) then you can fill in the available answers.
- To force the user to answer the question, check the Required question box (so students are unable to skip past any questions).
- Click Done when finished.
- Click Duplicate to make a similar question.
- Or Add item(left) to add a new question type.
- Can add images or videos for students to watch pre- or post assessment
Where do responses go?
Responses go into a spreadsheet that was created alongside your Form.
Change Theme: Allows you to customize how it looks
View Responses: Shows you a spreadsheet will all student responses for quick access.
View Live Form: Allows you to see the assessment the way your students would
Sending out your form to students
There are a few ways you can send out your form.
- Click on Send Form
- Copy Link and post it to website or classroom- or add student email addresses (see me about making quick class lists for this option)
This guide is a very basic start to Google Forms. Other things you can do:
- Send students to certain questions based on their answers ( if a students gets a question wrong, have them view related material)
- Automatically Grade assignments with Flubaroo
- Send each student a report of how they did with feedback
- Insert media (pictures and video) into questions.
