This is Part Three of a three part series on making quizzes with Google Forms. Part One focused on how to make the quiz. Part Two focused on how to set up automatic grading using Google Spreadsheets. Part Three (this one) focuses on sharing the quiz with students.
Distribution for test takers (Standard Objective Test)
Return to your Google Forms Quiz. Click the “Send Form” button in the top right hand corner of the screen.
If you chose to share the link, you can use a QR code, to save time. Most students with smartphones are familiar with QR codes. QR Creator is an easy to use web app which allows you to create a QR coded image in a matter of seconds.
Sharing quiz making with students (Student Generated Test)
I would like to briefly mention the possibility of student created quizzes using this technology. There are a variety of reasons why student created quizzes are pedagogically popular. With the ability of students to collaborate on quiz making using this technology, there is something to consider for anyone interested in a more social constructivist method of education. Possibilities range from each student creating their own quiz which others must take, small groups creating quizzes for other groups of classmates, or students writing quiz questions which the instructor compiles into a single quiz. Sharing a quiz for collaborative construction can be done using the add collaborators link in the Send Form Widget.
From there, e-mail addresses (Gmail) can be added for users to collaborate on creating forms.
Here are some examples of different quizzes you might try making with Google Forms:
- Video enhanced listening comprehension quizzes
Sample using a YouTube video:
- Reading quizzes using reading passages embedded into the form
Sample using a VOA news article and including a hidden bonus question for those who correctly answer the last question: http://goo.gl/jWLNur
- Grammar quiz using images as prompts.
Sample using answer shuffling and a link to response summary once quiz is complete:
