10 Ways to Use Google Forms in the Classroom

10 Ways to Use Google Forms in the Classroom

By Kristy Andre

Google Forms is a great tool for educators—not to mention it’s free! Here are a few of the best ways I’ve discovered to use it in a classroom.

1. Collect Parent Information

Collect parent information—like emails, phone numbers or volunteer availability— at the beginning of the year. With all of this information in a Google Spreadsheet, you to create easily integrate contacts with your Gmail account or access student information anywhere there’s an Internet connection.

2. Gather Student Information

Have your students fill out a “getting to know you” Google Form. It will be helpful to have this typed up in one place, and you’ll get to know your students better.

3. Record Details of a Reading Conference

Use Google Forms to collect the information you gather from one-on-one meetings with students.

4. Assess Reading Comprehension

Use Google Forms as an assessment tool for reading comprehension. Embed a YouTube video story for your students to watch, and then have them answer comprehension questions.

5. Collect an Assignment

With students making so many things online now, it’s hard to organize all the links. Create a Google Form that asks students for the link to their project. This will keep assignments in one place where you can easily find and view each one.

6. Collect Data for a Math Lesson

Poll your students on a particular topic and then have them create a graph based on the data you collected.

7. Create Peer to Peer Quizzes

Have students create a Google Form quiz to be taken by their peers based on a concept they recently learned about.

8. Conduct Student Evaluations

Have students fill out a survey to give feedback to each other about their work.

9. Create a Quick Assessment

Create a Google Form quiz for comprehension. With all the answers in one place, you’ll be able to see trends—what don’t they understand? What topics do you need to revisit?

10. Give Students a Chance to Reflect

Use Google Forms as a reflection tool for your students to think back on their learning.

Once you’ve created your Google Form, create a QR code so it’s easily accessible to your students.
