A couple of years ago I used Google Forms when I taught 3rd grade. I made a couple of Forms for my students to use and I used the Flubaroo add on to grade it. For some reason when I switched grade levels (and schools) I stopped using Google Classroom and in turn, also stopped using Google Forms. Now that I am in this program I keep telling myself that I will pick it all back up again. I just need to make the time. I think for my age group it would be best to use multiple choice questions mostly. I think it is important for students to do most of their writing with paper and pencil because they are still learning how to write and spell. I like the idea of having students use it as an exit ticket or to gain more information from them or their parents. One of the Forms I created was a Parent Questionnaire that I usually send home at the beginning of the school year. I think it would save paper to send it as a Form at the beginning of the year. It would also be helpful to me to have it all in one place in Google.
I think for my Capstone project, I might use this to gather data on my students feelings about a certain tool that I use. I could also use it to gather information about my staff and their needs and concerns. Since they could possibly be my target audience for my Capstone, I might want to gather information from them using a Form. I'm still a little unsure about how I can use Forms for my Capstone, but I do have a lot of ideas on how to use it in the classroom.
I loved the Alice Keeler link that had the keyboard shortcuts. I felt like using those shortcuts helped make the process a lot smoother. I also love how when you are writing a question it automatically tries to figure out what type of question you are writing. For example, I wrote "Rate your experience..." and it automatically changed the question to a "rating scale". I think that helps make the process of making a form smoother. I also love the "quiz" feature added to forms. I do wish they made it easier to get to. I think going into the settings to create a quiz is a little too many steps when they could just put it on the top of the Form. Maybe one day...
