Quizzes in Google Forms: 12 Days of Hanutech, Day 11
Google Forms now gives teachers the ability to create self-grading quizzes. You enter the questions and the answer key, students take the quiz online, and bam! Instant assessment!
- Go to your Google Drive
- Click the blue NEW button, hover over More > and then choose Google Forms
- Create the Google Form as usual, including questions with multiple choice or checkbox formats.
Best Practices Tips:
- number your questions. This makes it easier for students to track their progress while taking the quiz, and for review afterwards.
- add a question where students enter their name (just in case of any log in issues)
Note: You can also add text- or paragraph-based questions, but they will not be auto-graded. You would have to come back and ready them one by one.
- In the top right-corner, click the three dots, and choose Settings. There are three “tabs” at the top, called “General,” “Presentation,” and “Quizzes.” Set these settings:
- Go back to your quiz questions and click a question. At the bottom of the question, click Answer Key
- Choose the correct answer(s) .
- In the top right corner, assign the question a point value.
- Repeat for all questions in the quiz.
- Send to your students: Along the top, click the Send icon (it looks like a paper airplane).
- Click the link icon (the middle one) and then copy the URL link.
- Open Google Classroom, Moodle, or whatever, and paste the link for students to see.
