Recently I watched this excellent talk entitled “May the Forms be with you”, which gives some great tips and uses for Google Forms:
My main takeaways were:
- Data validation – this can be used to provide password protection for a quiz, by starting with a data validated question. Once they successfully complete it, they proceed to the next section within the quiz.
- Instant feedback – Now, Google Forms also has a feedback section that can be set by the teacher, but that only provides feedback once the quiz is finished. His suggestion was creating a series of sections. A question appears, and the following quiz “section” shows the answer to the previous question. Next, a question, and then a section. Repeat.
- Create your own adventure – Thanks to the feature that allows you to direct a student to a different part of the form depending on an answer, it can be set up as a continuing story, with varying story lines, complete with pictures and videos!
