Microsoft Forms

Digital Assessments Made Easy with Microsoft Forms


Microsoft Forms is a new part of Office 365 Education that allows teachers or students to easily and quickly create custom surveys, quizzes, questionnaires, registrations and more. Form authors can invite others to complete forms, which they can do using any web browser, even on mobile devices. During this session, participants will learn how to create forms and share them with their students to assess the content they have presented in class.

Session Objectives

  • Participants will be able to create their own forms using various question types
  • Participants will be able to adjust the settings to shuffle questions and answers, and apply a deadline
  • Participants will be able to deliver a form to student’s in multiple ways
  • Participants will be able to read the results of form in two ways

Success Criteria:

  • Participants created a form and added more than one question type.
  • Participants applied a deadline to a form and learned how to change the settings of a form.
  • Participants learned at least one way to distribute a form.
  • Participants analyzed a form response in real time

PLC Guiding Questions:

1. What is it we want our students to learn?

2. How will we know if each student has learned it?

3. How will we respond when some students do not learn it?

4. How can we extend and enrich the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency?
