Comments from some of those who selected Google Forms as one of their top tools

“I’ve used Google forms as part of a quality indicator process, creating a range of surveys for clients who are then given control of the files. They are easy to design and the spreadsheets then provide the basis for further data analysis for learning trends and improvement suggestions.” Tracie Regan, Instructional Designer, Australia, 2020

“The quiz option of Google Forms is a serious upgrade! I have saved HOURS of time grading using Google Forms, and not just because questions were multiple choice. Forms groups questions together in various ways, to best fit your grading needs. The tallying of points happens automatically as you grade, and instant feedback after grading can be sent to students in their gmail accounts. It is slick, and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to any teacher.” Librarian, 2020

“It’s a great tool for collecting data quickly and so easily.” Teacher, 2020

“Best tool for surveys” Coach Carole, Learning Designe, Australia, 2020
