Forms are amazing. They can be used to collect data, conduct a survey, vote in an election, or quiz your students. They really have almost unlimited uses in a school environment and can totally change the way you do things in a school.
Forms can have the following question types...
You can also manage the general flow and look of your Forms by including...
The Page Breaks and Section Headers can be used to create conditional Forms, where people are given different questions to respond to based on their previous answers. This can be used to customise your Forms quite a lot.
The recent addition of Images of Videos is something that many Forms users have been asking for for a while. You can now show a YouTube video or display an image and ask your respondents a question about it. Super cool!
Here is a sample Form. It contains three conditional branches that showcase the various question types and options in Forms. (so you need to do it three times if you want to see the whole thing)
Have a go!
Create a form that uses at least 6 of the different question types, but you MUST use Scale, Grid and Multiple Choice question types. The other 3 (or more) are up to you.
Once you create your form...
It's not hard, is it? Think of all the different uses you could come up for Forms in your school. Tell us about it here...
Six things about Forms that you might not have known
Also, if you are creating Forms using a Google Apps for Education account, you get some extra options in the Form Settings. You can force respondents to be logged into your school domain (so you can restrict the respondents to only those that belong to your school, for example), and you can automatically collect their logged in username (great to make sure that the person filling in the form is who they say they are)
Happy Form building! It really is one of the best things about Google Drive!
