How To Use New Google Forms Quiz – Tech Tip Tuesday

Google Forms was originally designed as a way to survey people or gather information. It wasn’t intended to be used as means of formative or summative assessment.

But that’s what teachers want and it wasn’t long before people made add-ons like Flubaroo or Autocrat which allowed for auto-marking quizzes and much more.

Now Google have caught up with the times and built auto-marking features straight into google forms, no add-ons required. It even provides immediate feedback upon correct or incorrect answers.

With a self-marking exam I had collated data on each question and my marking time decreased dramatically. Now I can spend time on the important teaching stuff.
