How to use google forms as an assessment tool:
1. Class Quiz or Test
This is probably the most obvious and common use of Google Forms in the classroom. Set your class a series of questions using Google Forms and either send on the link or embed the form in a location that students can access. On completion of the assessment, results will be collated and accessible within the form. This can be particularly useful if you plan on re-delivering the test so that results can be compared over time. And, with forms being so simple to share, it can be a very useful way of reusing resources within your school or PLN.
2. Peer Assessment
One very engaging way to use Google Forms is to have students use them to assess each other. By creating a standard assessment form, students can review each other’s work and submit their own thoughts, feedback and even grades. This could take the form of assessing student presentations or swapping class work. Depending on how you want to set up the form, this could be as transparent or anonymous as you like.
3. Flipped Classroom
With the ability to add multimedia material as well as link out to third-party resources, Google Forms can be used to both deliver information as well as gather it. Try creating a full lesson within the form so that students can complete the work in their own time. You can then use the responses and data to guide in-class discussion and select appropriate further learning material.
4. Gathering Feedback
Of course, Google Forms do not need to be all about grades and marking. As a tool to ‘collect information quickly‘, forms can be a very useful way to gather the thoughts and opinions of your class, students or even the broader school community. It might be something as trivial as choosing a new class poster, something as exciting as voting in a school competition or something as important as the direction of the district going forward; whatever it might be, Google Forms makes it extremely easy to securely collect and collate all kinds of information for any further use.
5. Switch the Role
Flip the assessment concept on its head completely and ask your students to create their own questionnaire or survey using Google Forms. Not only is the skill of creating forms an excellent exercise, but the sharing and circulation of the finished form, as well as the analysis of results, is a hugely rewarding project.
