Students can fill out the form from any device including iOS and Android tablets, mobile phones with web browsers and of course laptops and desktops.


Since forms are filled out online, there’s no need to enter in results manually. Responses are collected and displayed immediately in a corresponding Google Drive spreadsheet (Sheets) which allows you to sort, analyze, and visualize the information.


You can send forms to anyone - even those outside of your school Apps domain. Respondents can access the form via email, a published webpage, or embedded on a site.

Forms also generates an automatic summary with charts, graphs, and statistics about your form responses and can notify you when new responses are submitted.


App: Forms

Activity Link: See examples below
Feature: question types

Tips:
1-Decide whether you want the form to automatically collect the respondents username
