10 Great Free Google Forms Every Teacher Should Be Using

Google Forms is a great free service by Google and that has a huge potential in education. Google Forms is very easy to use and does not require any advanced technology skills to run it. It is automatically built in Google Docs meaning it is completely web-based and does not require any software download. Anyway you can check this simple guide if you are not yet familiar with Google Docs .




Today's post, however, is about a great work that has been done by our colleague Tom Barret. He has created awesome example forms for different topics. He has also , thankfully , made all these forms availabe for us to download and use with our students. I have checked all his forms and I was really amazed by the great efforts he has put into them. You can use these forms with your students for sure but remember to keep in mind the great things you can do with Google Forms if you give it a little time.

Check out this list of forms below and click on any title to access its corresponding form. The pictures you see below are only  half snapshots of each form:

  2. Tom, thank you for sharing. I am new to Google Forms and am wondering... What do I have to actually do to use these forms with my own students. Do I need to upload? Give them the web address? Where will I go to see results after all students fill out the form?

  3. First you need a Google account. When the form is created in your account (under Google Forms), it creates a link. You can either put a shortcut on your desktop or you can add the link to a website.

    The data from the form is collected into an excel spreadsheet located under Google Docs (no called Drive).

    All of these resource are listed under "even more" if you cannot find them. They are all free, but it does take a little time to explore and learn how to navigate. Its worth the effort.

  5. I hope this question isn't too basic, but if I have a google account, is there a way to use the forms in your article, or do I need to recreate them? Thank you for the really helpful information!
