GF TUTORIAL FOR BEGINNERS (2019)

HOW TO CREATE A GF QUIZ - SELF GRADING & IMPORTS TO GC - MAY 2020

CREATING QUIZZES IN GC - APR 2020

FORMS TIPS FROM COLLEAGUES

Google Forms do not save answers if the device/browser is shut down.

A student needs to complete a form and submit for the answers to save. 

THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT FOR KIDS TO KNOW!!!!!

 

  • Google forms alone as an assignment will import grades into GC when you are done grading BUT if you post a form with additional material in that GC Assignment, you need to manually enter grades into GC. 
  • Making a Google Form for an assignment….
    • Consider using Day/block as the first part of the title “2B 5.1 reading Glaciers”
    • Easy to find to link when adding the link from Google drive
    • Also easy to search in Google Forms when it is time to grade it 
      • typing in 5.1 or 2B in the search gives you all instances
  • More than one class? Make a copy of that form, edit the day block for the additional course that will use that form
    • Unless you like spreadsheets ;-)

 

  • Use “student name”  short answer question that is required and a “Class block”. We do not know all emails

FORMS AS QUZZES

  • Option to turn on “Locked Mode” for the quiz… only allows that tab to be opened in chromebooks AND only allows that assignment to be done on a Ledyard Chrome book/account
    • Locked mode also notifies the teacher, in the case of an assessment and the teacher is not using go guardian, if the form is opened multiple times via email.
  • Even if you choose “release grades immediately” you can still edit/grade and re-release grades
  • Short answer/paragraph checking is not so great that you can trust it to grade correctly. If a student misspells or does not have the same answer supplied, you still need to manually grade. BUT it is easy to go through and quickly grade...I can show you how!
  • Add the answers to the comments section to help you have the “answer key” right there for review. It is not viewable by the student until the form has been submitted.
  • Sometimes, pictures do not resize in the Google form and you need to post those separately - use a Drive link.
Library is OPEN
