Many of you may already use Google Forms as a survey tool or to pose questions to check for student comprehension. Now formative assessment is all the faster as Google has added the feature of Quizzes to Google Forms. Student responses can be automatically compiled and graded, saving teachers hours of repetitive grading. Teachers can also select correct answers and even enter explanations and review materials for when a student gets an answer wrong.
To use the Quizzes features within Google Forms, click on the Settings button in the top right (the circular gear icon), and choose Quizzes. This short video tutorial by Shawn Beard at The Techy Coach also walks you through the process.
