Good news, teachers! Google Quizzes in Google Forms is getting better! As part of the G Suite Apps, Google Forms are fantastic, and they allow you to create all sorts of amazing things like:

  • Job applications
  • Work or time-off requests
  • Event registrations
  • Exit tickets
  • Worksheets

In the past year, Google has added built-in functionality that allows you to create self-grading quizzes. You build the exam, and Google does all the grading. Features remain, though, that educators have been wanting. Here are 6 impressive features coming soon:

1. Quiz Answer Suggestions

For some time, Google has used AI and machine learning to help make building forms easier. If you add in a question to your form and title it "Email," Google will automatically set the field to require a proper email format. If you ask a question that involves choice, it automatically makes it a multiple choice question.

Google has harnessed that power to help with even your question content. On the example from Google below, you can see that if you ask: "What is the capital of Denmark?" Google will use machine learning to suggest that the correct answer is Copenhagen and allow you to add it as a choice. Google will then present realistic variables and alternatives for you to add in. This makes creating content easy!

2. Autocomplete Answers

If you type in a question that uses the days of the week, Google will automatically provide you with the remaining options you can add with just a click!

3. Automatically Grade Checkbox and Multiple Choice Grid Questions

Grading is here for multiple choice grid and checkbox questions, and it's so easy to use! You could make this work before, but it was a super intensive process, so Google just made using these options a snap!

4. Give Decimal Grades

You can now give partial credit for answers in Quizzes. Teachers rejoice!

5. Improve Understanding with YouTube Video Feedback

You've always been able to provide feedback for students to questions. You can offer proofs to why they were correct, or you can explain to them where they missed the mark. Now Google has made it unbelievably easy for you to provide YouTube videos to give students a chance to get more practice or additional information!

6. See the Total Number of Points in a Quiz

Google Forms lets you enter how many points each question is worth, but in the past, you had to keep your own tally of the totals. No longer: Google will now put a point counter at the top of the form for you to reference.

These are some incredible new features, and I'm looking forward to training you on how to get the most out of them in your classroom!
