Session designed for those new to Google Forms or people needing a refresher.
Learn the basics: Learn the “new” Google Forms, with all its added features. Use with students or colleagues. FORMS are easy to construct, and are designed using the content and information pertinent to your subject area. Respondents fill out FORMS online, and Google “instantly” places the answers in a spreadsheet and creates a colored chart, summarizing the respondents’ answers. The spreadsheet can be sorted for easy viewing, and the colored chart allows for quick and easy reading. Insert different kinds of questions. Add images, videos, and sections. Use images as part of the question, or as distracters. Insert complex math expressions and graphs. Use for quizzes, how-to steps, collecting assignments, data collection, science experiments, math reviews, and more.
Create “self-correcting” Forms for tests and quizzes. Features include the ability to assign points to each question, creating answer keys, and deciding whether to give students immediate feedback when they complete the tests (without the need for email), or emailing students their grades at a later date, after everyone has taken the test. Teachers can view class summaries with mean, median, and range of points for each test. They can add links to resources, within each question, for students to use when they get their test results. For answers students had incorrect, they can be directed to additional help. Teachers can also give individual feedback to students, with private comments. And, they can “hand score” individual questions for specific students, such as special needs students. Add-Ons can be used to enhance what can be done - automatically turn Forms off by date and time (or number of responses), eliminate choices as students make selections, etc.
