EdTech | Google Forms

Google Forms is a great tool to use for gathering information anonymously or as an assessment tool to check for level of understanding. Google Forms is available as a part of the Google Apps for Education package (think Google Drive, Docs, etc.). With Google Forms, you can easily create items such as surveys, opinion polls, quizzes/​tests, questionnaires, or invitations right in your web browser — no special software is required! Even better, multiple people can work at the same time, and every change is saved automatically.

Google Forms is a great tool to gather information, including:
  • View the Student Information (name, phone number, email, etc.)
  • Current understanding of key concepts
  • Feelings about their understanding (i.e. critical evaluation of their own learning)
  • Lingering questions
  • Requests for support exercises
  • Instructor feedback/​attitude towards class

When ready to share your survey, send it via email, hyperlink, or embed it in your D2L course! Surveys will remain open until the Accepting Responses option is turned off.

  • User-​friendly: easy to make, edit, and respond to forms on screens big and small.
  • Responses are neatly and automatically collected, with real-​time response info and charts.
  • Add collaborators to let anyone- students, colleagues, and friends- build your survey with you.
