Google Forms is one of the best free tools for creating a wide variety of forms from surveys to questionnaires and quizzes. The latest update to Forms which automatically saves users’ progress as draft available for 30 days makes Forms an excellent platform to use with students. They can now start responding to forms you share with them on one device and pick up where they left in another device or at a later time.
In today’s post I want to share with you this handy tip I learned from Miguel Guhlin’s post Five Hacks from Google Forms. It is about searching for sample forms online.
If you are looking for inspiration or are looking for guidance on how and what to include in your Forms, you can search Google for examples of forms published online using the following search formula:
search terms + site:https://docs.google.com/forms
For instance, if you want to see examples of rubric forms you can type in Google search engine the following : rubrics site:https://docs.google.com/forms; similarly for examples of grading forms you can type in grading site:https://docs.google.com/forms.
If you rather search for pre-designed forms to adapt to your own teaching needs, I recommend Google Forms gallery which contains an increasing number of ready-made forms arranged into various categories (e.g., personal, work, education, etc). You can browse through the collections and click on the ones you like to start customizing them to your own preferences.
