Description: The article is about my classroom login. This is an introduction on how to use Google Forms to create a test and add it to Google Classroom. The author shows how to use Google Forms to create a test and add it to Google Classroom.
I’m going to talk about how to create a test that will eventually grade itself. One of the biggest concerns of teachers is that we don’t have enough time to do this,this is time saver,it is great about classroom. I’m going to start it on Google. The foursquare is where you can get to a lot of your Google Apps,Docs,Sheets Slides and Drive.
I’m going to start with Drive,it’s going to take us into this space. You can think of Drive as a big filing cabinet that used to haul around,it’s digital,these are all file folders,they even have the little symbol for it. You’re going to use this to create your test.
You can use this form to create a test. If you scroll down,you’re going to see past Docs,sheets and slides. Docs is comparable to Microsoft Word,Sheets would be Excel Slides,you’re going to click more. You can see the purple little box that says Google Forms.
Once this opens up,this is the blank space to create a test. The first thing you need to do is to give it a name. We will call this teacher practice test,in the description,I am going to type in showing mastery of creating a test on Google Forms. I’m going to show you some different things.
There is a teacher practice test,it has been automatically saved. It’ll tell you that it is saving everything in your drive. We’ve always been doing this,it automatically does it for you.
The next thing we will talk about is your color palette. If you want to change colors of your text,this is the purple,you can see and change it to that purple. If that matters,you can change it to whatever color you like. I’m going to stick with the dark blue,this is a preview. Once you start getting some test questions created,you’ll preview it to see if there are some major changes you want to make.
You can use your Settings button to decide who’s going to be able to respond. You can automatically collect their students’ user name. The problem with this is their ID number. I don’t know about you,but I don’t have my student ID number memorized.I’m not clicking that. They can only submit one response.
I am not going to choose that in case the student accidentally submits their test. It’s up to you,if you only want them to be able to do this test one time,you can go ahead and click there. We’re going to undo that. If you want to give them a message once they have done the task,you can do that.
You can type in congratulations. If you want to leave a blank,you can do that too. Those things have been done automatically. On the side,this is how you add a test. This will give you another set of instructions. If part of your test is going to be multiple choice and the next part is going to be a paragraph,you can put in another section of title to tell them what’s happening.
You can add an image,it is good for geography teachers and history teachers who need to see a picture of a map. When they need to upload a picture,you can do that. You can add video links or video clips to your test,a student can answer questions based on that test.
This is adding another section. If you want to break it up to different areas,you can do that. You can get the basics. It’ll tell you the function of each space. I’m going to show you how to create questions. Once you click on this area,it gives you a little drop-down menu. You can do short answer,paragraph,multiple choice, check boxes or drop-down.
You have linear scale in multiple choice grid,those are more math things. I haven’t messed with math a lot. I always do my first question as their name. You can type name to make that a required question,they have to do that. If you want to give them a hint for some reason they don’t know the row name,you can do that. Data validation is a new thing. It’s a math thing, if that is something that you’re interested in,you can do that.
When you’re ready to add your next question,you can click add a question. We will come up with question 1,you have your options here,you do not have to number the questions. If that’s something important to you,you can do that,you can do it. Who was the first president of the US? You can give your options,Benjamin or Damon Franklin,you can add another option for George Washington.
You can add as many as you want. If you want to do it in that way,you’re going to keep on going down further. If you want to change your test section or if you want to make a paragraph,this gives them space to do that.
If you want to do another question which is very similar to this and don’t want to type the whole thing again,this is a duplicate button. If you click that,it completely duplicates that question. You have that option. If you totally don’t like that question,there’s a delete button.
If you hover over it,it will tell you what the buttons do. Once you have finished,you can come over to this section. The eye icon is to preview,you can click on that preview button,it is going to give you a preview of your test.
It is a required question,the students will not be able to turn the test in until they have an answer,it’s important to have their name on it. This is what the student will see,you can click submit.
The great thing about this is that if you want to go back and practice on work, it will open another document,this is cool,it is simple and easy to create. When you’re ready to submit a test,you can click Send. It’s going to ask what you want to do with it,you can create a link,you can embed it if you want to do that. You can email it.
We’re going to get out of this. There are two different ways you can use to post the link in your Google classroom. If you shorten the URL,the firewall at our school will not recognize it ,it will not let you open it.
If you’re going to do it with the link,you’re going to go ahead and click copy. You can create an assignment practice. There is your link,you will paste it. Apparently,I didn’t get copied. You can click Add,it’ll give you a little generation error.
It has generated a little preview picture. It’s saving. If you want to make sure the link you put is right,you can back to the section,that’s what it looks like. If you need to change the due date,you can do that.
You can create a time. If you want to make sure that all your students are done at specific times,you can change time. You can click Save,you would assign that to them. I’ll show you my students. This is what it looks like. It tells you when they’re due. That is how you create a test on Google classroom.
