Google Forms can be utilized for testing purposes, but also to see where the students are at when it comes to comprehending the topics taught as the students can be asked to fill in various forms. One can choose different question forms such as multiple choice, text, check box, chose from a list, grid, time, and date. This kind of forms would evaluate, monitor, test, or check the students. If one incorporates the correct answers in the completion page, the students can check their own answers and function as an instant feedback to the students.
My “ah ha” moment was when I initially made one form, consisting of True/False questions, but realized it would not give me enough information to evaluate the students’ comprehension.
An additional similar tool would be survey monkey where the teacher can build questions to assess where the students are at academically and also utilize it as a different way to give quizzes for evaluating knowledge.
