Google Forms

Self-Paced Professional Development Course

What is Google Forms?

Google Forms is an easy way to collect and organize information responses - surveys, polls, registrations and assessments. You can create your unique form with a number of question format options and even include images, videos and a custom theme. Google collects the responses to your form in a Google Sheet, which can then be organized or shared with others.

How can I use it to enhance & transform my classroom?

Google Forms will allow you to collect responses from students easily and efficiently. Here are just a few ideas of how you can put Google Forms to work for you:

What are other educators saying about it?

  • "Workflow simplification. Old way to give a quiz: type up the questions, print out the sheet, make photocopies, pass them out, collect them, grade them, enter the data into a spreadsheet then analyze the data. New Google Forms method: type up the questions, email the quiz, look at the results." M. Goldstein read full review

  • “The collection and organization of info made simple with Google Forms.” EdShelf read full review
