In the past couple days I've built a google form, learned the differences between multiple choice and check boxes, gotten some submissions, re-written the questions and linked entries from one spreadsheet to another so the final product is somewhat user friendly. While the initial process was complicated, I now feel rather confident that I can use Google Forms and I'm looking forward to using them with my classes throughout the year.
That's where you come in:
Have you used Google Forms at school? How did it work? What types of forms are useful? What pitfalls should I watch out for so next time this doesn't take so many steps?
My hint: if you use checkboxes, make the text for each box concise! Everything next to the box will show up in your spreadsheet and it's hard to scan. The extra line underneath the question is a great space to put all the wordy stuff if your options need explanations.
Can't wait to hear your ideas!
