EdTechPD: Teaching with Google Forms

Google Forms—along with Docs, Sheets, and Slides—is part of Google Apps for Education suite of tools. It’s easy to use and one of the simplest ways to collect data from users and save to a spreadsheet, and it’s the best sidekick to Google Sheets’ spreadsheets.

During our weekly EdTech PD event this week, I plan to demonstrate how Google Forms can be used to create assessments and provide feedback to students. I use Google Forms to keep track of student progress on projects, collect project proposals, mastery quizzes, and skill assessments. In these assessments, I provide students with immediate feedback on their progress.

I came across number of excellent resources for teachers interested in using Google Forms. Here is the list of resources that I feel will be useful.

The training video below is an excellent resource by Meagan Kelly. Whats covered in the video include:

  • Create a Google Form that contains a variety of question types, such as short answer, multiple choice, checkboxes, paragraph answers, etc.
  • Adjust the theme and style of the Google Form.
  • Set up the Google Form for automatic and manual grading.
  • Create a password to lock the Google Form.
  • View and analyze assessments results through Google Forms and Sheets.

Here is another very good Google Forms resource I discovered through @Google For Education. This is basically a presentation comprising 52 slides each of these slides features a Google Forms tip shared  by a teacher or educator on Twitter. Teachers are asked to use #GoogleForms handle to share their own experiences using Forms in their instruction and the folks in Google for Education collect and organize these resources into presentations such as the one below.
