**UPDATE: March 18. I learned that I would not share the responses from a paragraph-type question. Unfortunately, I had someone copy and paste an entire Wikipedia article as a joke, which made the results confusing to read and also happened to be offensive and therefore flagged – or whatever it’s called when something cannot be read by the public online anymore (I had a friend show me and we couldn’t view the results unless I logged onto Google Drive). However, this was a good experience because I learned both how to remove a question from a form and how to erase all the responses and start new (unfortunately I had to erase all or none so I lost the previous responses including some great stories). Future: only have the results publicly available if the answers are not typed in freely. I could post a message for those interested in the results to contact me if necessary.**
I wanted to do some playing with Google Forms as I missed this topic when it was presented in class. This is practice for when, not if, I use them in the future for:
Organizing events, trips (professional or personal… like organizing family Christmas!)
Getting to know students and parents/organizing interviews
Tests and Quizes
Math and Graphing
Student created surveys and research
Collecting opinions and preferences from those who are too busy and/or too shy to speak up.
Collecting feedback on anything.
Students’ record of readings/homework/optional work.
Alternative to the “suggestions box” or “questions, concerns, ideas box” (similar to our exit slips in ETAD 470)
Orders (i.e. lunch orders, clothing orders)
Creating essay or story outlines
Peer/Self Evaluation reports
Guided Reflection Document for Staff and Students
**Some of my ideas came from here, and there are many, many more.
Here’s my Google Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/18bzspof3AcGWNx-ZPVt7whGrHBF4gkNn085ltvPhNbk/viewform
Fill it out for some fun if you like and/or share it with anyone. There will be an option for you to review the results etc. after you finish. I’ve added my personal Facebook friends to complete it as well so I’m hoping for many creative answers!
