I have been using Google Forms for years for a wide variety of reasons:
- Assignment Dropbox
- Idea Collector
- Quizzes that grade themselves
- Data Collection (Great for science classes)
- Peer Review
- Research (Just a different type of data collection!)
and much has been written about their varied uses like the ever-popular 80 (Now up to 81) Ways to Use Google Forms. We have some new-to-Google teachers in our building this year and prior to meeting with them, I decided to put together a little up-to-date cheat sheet they could rely on as they begin to discover the wonderful world that is Google Forms...
Creating a Google form isn't hard. And with all of the most recent updates, the possibilities for creating dynamic, beautiful forms is even easier! I know there's a lot of information here, but if you're not familiar with Google Forms, poke around and refer back to this graphic.
With the addition of images, math teachers can use the gMath Add On in Docs and Sheets to create equations for math quizzes. (The developer, John McGowan, is a great educator who every math teacher needs to follow!) The use of images is also a great way to structure social studies questions analyzing primary source documents with standardized testing type questions. The possibilities are endless. Features such as randomizing questions or just answer choices makes it harder for students to copy from their neighbors.
