I love using Google Forms to create self-checking, digital activities because to me it's a win-win: students get immediate feedback and teachers don't have to do any grading!
I also like that they're editable, so teachers can make adjustments to meet the needs of their students. You can add or delete questions, change the answer type and more to make it exactly what you need.
If you've downloaded one of my digital math activities made with Google Forms, here are the steps you can take to make changes and send to students.
Step 1: Click the activity link in the pdf.
When you click on the link, it will ask you to make a copy in your Google Drive. Please note that this is not the link that you will share with students.
Step 2: Edit questions if desired.
You can make any changes to the activity before assigning to students. You can add or delete questions, change the answer type (multiple-choice, short answer, etc.), change the order of the questions, etc.
Step 3: Edit automatic grading settings if desired.
I set up my activities in Google to be graded automatically! The current settings are to release grades immediately and students will be able to see the point values and correct answers.
These settings can easily be changed by clicking on Settings, then on Quizzes. You can change it to allow students to see the results after you’ve manually reviewed them and can also select if you want them to see the correct answers or not.
Step 4: Assign to Students
Click the SEND button at the top of the form to assign the activity. You can enter student email addresses or get the link to share with students. Note: the link you will share with students is not the same as the link in the pdf.
Step 5: See Student Results
Students complete the digital activity and hit submit. You can see their answers by clicking on “RESPONSES” at the top of your Google form.
I hope these activities will be helpful to you!
