Speaker 1: OTAN. Outreach and Technical Assistance Network.
Monica Espinoza: All right. Good afternoon, everybody. Thank you so much for taking some time out of your summer to join me and continue learning about Google Forms today. So as Melinda said, this is part one of three. And today we will be focusing on the form, specifically quizzes.
So as you know, I am an ESL instructor. And I am fortunate enough to be at Torrance Adult School with amazing colleagues and students I am a level one certified educator. And I'd be willing to talk to you a little bit more about what that means for you and for your digital skills. So let's go ahead and get started.
Today you are going to be able to create a quiz form. And you're going to be using Google Forms. And we're going to apply the following formatting features. You are going to learn to customize the theme of your form, how to use different question types on a Google Form.
You're going to add media to your questions, so pictures and video. And you are going to learn how to set a required question or make a question not required for your users. As you type in questions into the chat box, I will do my best to address them now or I will tell you that the answer's coming up later.
All right. So first off, Google forms offers us a variety of templates that might already be in your organization. So for today, we're going to be working on the template for blank quiz. These other templates like find a time, I find that they are incredibly useful. I also like the exit ticket. And so today we are going to be focusing on blank quiz. And let's see what it is. So maybe some of you are asking yourselves, well, what's the difference between a quiz and exit ticket or a survey.
Well, on Google Forms, the difference between a quiz and the other types of Google Forms is that, A, you can assign points to the questions that you ask in your form. And second, you can add an answer key to most of the question types that Google Forms allows. So that is the main difference between a quiz and any other type of Google Form.
All right. So why do you need Google Forms in your class? Yes? So I'm here to tell you, well, why not? All right. This is what a Google Forms quiz form can do for you in the classroom. OK. Now you can use a form. You can generate a form to use at any stage of your lesson. Right.
And Google Form allows us to ask many different types of questions and include media, which is something that I really like. You can include an answer key or not. If you include an answer key, you can instantly grade student work. And that is a beautiful thing, because don't have to go back and review one by one. So it's definitely a time saver.
Again, you can assign points to each question. And this can change afterwards. Just because you assign an answer key or points to a question doesn't mean that you can't change it later. And later I mean after students or after users have submitted something. Again, you can add personal feedback to each student. Google will automatically send them their score once you review it. It generates all the responses in a beautiful, nicely organized spreadsheet for you to analyze.
And of course, one of my favorite things is that it allows for your students or your users' submissions to be in the form of text. So I can type you directly into the form or it also allows for users to include attachments. And it's diverse types of files. So it's not only a Google doc or a Microsoft Word document. And it saves all of these responses and all of the attachments that you receive in one convenient location for you.
All right. Moving on. So at this point, you are going to be taking a little quiz. All right. So in the chat box, you will see a link to-- there you go. All right. You will see a link to a quiz. Now this is just for fun. OK. And I created this quiz for you to see examples of different question types that Google Forms will allow you.
Now I created this quiz for you. And I set it so that you could see your score after you submit your response. So please, you can see the answer key and some feedback for some of the questions after you submit your response. So I'll give you a few minutes. I'll give you a few minutes to work on that.
I am going to come back to our form. All right. Elena Toscano, I'm glad that you enjoyed that. There seems to be some-- maybe I did make a mistake in the awkward. Yeah. I double checked, so unless I ran into an error with this form, I accidentally deleted the answer key and I had to put in the answer key at the very last minute once again. So yes, maybe I did make a mistake here and there. And I hope maybe you did learn something from this.
So my name is Monica once again. M-O-N-I-C-A. OK. Yeah. So I hope that for Thomas Bittinger, you can access-- once you view your score and you look at the feedback, you will see a link to a YouTube video for the song lyrics. OK. So I'm going to just show you an example of how you can add feedback to your questions so when your students or when your audience views their results, they have something to fall back on. It's not like, oh, I got the wrong answer and that's it.
That's OK, Olivia (INAUDIBLE). You got my name wrong. I hope you don't forget it. And don't worry. I hope to see you in part two and part three. And you will know my name by then, I promise.
So I try to create sample questions for you so that you can see all the different question types. Now there are some question types that are missing. And they are missing because for those question types, you cannot add an answer key. And I'm going to go into that a little more later on.
So if you're confused about that, just give me a moment, please. In this question about the mask question, so I wanted to show you that you have the option to include links to outside sources of your form, where students could look, or read, or watch something. And you can ask a question about it. Now it will require maybe a little more time because the internet might be running a little slow. So I know that some of you have that problem today.
I tried to find a very short video and informative. I hope you enjoyed this little TED-ED video. So this is an example of how you can insert videos and ask questions about your video. I added this question in here about how comfortable you are using Google Forms. This was just a little extra question there.
If you noticed, there was not an answer key to this question because for this specific type of question, you cannot add an answer key. I'm sorry. You can add an answer key. But because the answer is in range form, it's a little cold. It's a little tricky to come up with a question that falls exactly within a range. Go at it.
So moving on, back to my little presentation. So I want to show you how I use Google Forms in my class. Now I used it in three different ways as a pre, as a mid, and a post assessment, and for homework. And so one of the ways that I used it was like you did today. When the students typed in their answers into the form, they selected multiple choice response.
And also, I used it where students-- as a place where students uploaded their work. Now for me, in my case, I was not used to learning management system in LMS, like Google Classroom, or Moodle. It was my choice to do something else. But I needed a place where students could just turn in their work for me, and I wouldn't have to be receiving thousands of emails from students sending me their work.
So Google Forms provided this amazing, amazing platform for me, where I can have students upload their work as a PDF, as an audio recording, as a video file, as a Google doc, as a Microsoft Word document. So students uploaded their work. So even though it's not necessarily a quiz like you just took, it was a place where students were able to upload their work that they did at home. And then they submitted through a Google form.
I then received their homework, evaluated their work, assigned the students points, and sent them feedback. And I also used a survey. I also used it as surveys. So now I'd like for you to take a moment. And I think now is a good time to share the link for them to see examples of some Google forms that I used, that I used in my classroom.
So I'll give you a few moments to look through them and to ask me any questions that you have about these google forms. One thing that I want you to notice is that some of the forms have sections. And a form like what you did right before this did not have sections.
Now some people are out of the school where they say, oh my goodness, we need sections in a form. It's just way too long if you don't have sections. And I agree. I completely agree. However, in my classroom, especially with the lower levels, I found that what students were doing was, they saw the questions on the Google form, and they preferred to do their work in their notebook and then type the questions.
So a student asked me if I could make it easier for them, for him specifically. And so I figured making it easier for him would most likely make it easier for others. So I decided to do away with the sections. So instead, you see a very long, long Google Form, where students were able to view all of the questions at the same time, work in their notebook if they wanted, and then they typed in their answers.
So I have been using Google Forms in my classroom much before COVID. And we had to-- going into distance learning. So I'm very, very glad that I did because most of my students were already familiar with how to use a Google Form. Now let me talk to you about some of the advantages to using Google Forms in your classroom.
And one of them for me was that the submissions were in one folder nicely organized for me. And that meant quicker access to these files. I didn't have to go around my Google Drive, or through my email, or anywhere else sifting for student responses. Another thing is that an answer key is optional.
So if it's an open-ended question, you can assign points to it. But you don't have to have an answer key. You would just manually go back and read that specific response. Again, points could be assigned later and can be changed later after a student submits their work.
If right now everybody submitted a quiz and I could go back and offer you feedback as a whole, if I see that students are making mistakes on a particular type of question, or I can give each participant individual feedback as well, something like, oh, great job, or something a little lengthier, which is watch this video on the present symbol, for example-- today, you completed this quiz synchronously. And a form could be used, like what we did today.
Or you could assign it for students to submit outside of the virtual session. Now the first couple of times, I think it was useful when I-- just like I'm sharing now, I shared the Google Form on my screen. And I walked them through what they should do with this form. I really like the range of questions. It offers us a flexibility into what we want to ask and really focus on the best questions and strategies for our students.
Super easy. It was really easy for me to duplicate forms where students, for example, they had to submit a journal every week. And I just duplicated the form, changed the title, changed the date, and it was super quick and easy. So I am very glad that forms could just be duplicated, tweaked, and used all over again.
Now obviously, there were challenges. Obviously, we've already experienced some of the challenges today. So again, my students, some lacked digital skills. So it was not intuitive to all students. And we had to go back and forth with a couple of them, showing them how to use a Google Form. Now you can not revert to a previous version, unfortunately.
The other Google apps will allow you to restore to a previous version, but unfortunately, a Google Form will not. However, you can undo some-- you can undo actions when you have a Google Form open at that specific moment. If you're working with a collaborator and you're both working on the form at the same time, it gets a little confusing because it doesn't update as quickly as when you're working on a Google Doc, for example.
So just a heads up, that can get a little confusing. Another inconvenience that I found was that if a student or if a user types their email incorrectly, then the student will not receive their score. What I did to bypass that was, I just took a screenshot of their score and I e-mailed that to them. So there was always a reminder. Please type in your email correctly.
And regarding the question type where Google Forms allows you to upload a file, we should know that some file types are not accepted. The most common PDFs, Excel Spreadsheets, Google Docs, Microsoft Word Documents, MP3s, MP4s, those are accepted. But not all of them are. And that is something that I found out in my experience. So let me go on.
So let's get into the Forms menu. So now I've opened up a blank quiz. And what I want to do first is I want to break it down for you. I want to break down the view for you before we get into the practical element of this webinar. So what you see here at the top of a blank quiz, what you see at the top is you see a space where right now it says blank quiz.
And what you would do is you would type in the title of your form there. Now if you see a little folder icon, you can click that folder icon. And it will allow you to select where in your Google Drive you would love to see that form. Starring-- clicking on the star, it makes it like a favorite in your bookmarks.
On your web browser, you have favorites. On Google Drive, you have starred items, starred files, starred folders. And they just allow you quicker access.
All changes saved in drive are just a reminder. You know that after every single little change that you make into your Google Form, the changes will automatically be saved. On the other side, I'm still at the Forms menu at the top, you see these little icons. And let me start with add-ons.
So that little puzzle piece that you might see throughout other Google apps is referred to add-ons. Now add-ons are something that you have to go into the Google Suite and you have to find and install this add-on. Now add-ons are just mini programs that run on the application like Google Forms, Microsoft Word-- I'm sorry, Google Docs, sorry.
And they just increase the functionality of your app. Now you do not have to have these, but there are add-ons for generating tables or adding a timer. There's all sorts of add-ons for Google apps. It's just a matter of you combing through the Google Suite and finding what is right for you.
Now this little paint palette will customize the color, the theme, and the font of your form. The little i will open up a new tab. And that is where you can preview what your users will see when you send them your form. A little wheel will allow you to modify the settings for the form. And I'm going to go more in depth in the next slide regarding your settings.
The send button will show you the options for sending the form to those that you want to share it with. Moving on-- so let's talk about your settings. And Anthony or Melinda, stop me if I need to address something. So in your settings, when you open your settings in that little wheel, you have three different tabs.
So I'm going to talk about the general setting. And checking this box where it says collect email address can limit your users because it's going to require participants to sign into Gmail. Now maybe some of your students or maybe some people in your audience do not have a Gmail address. And therefore, they would not be able to access your form. So keep that in mind, please.
And for the quiz that you took today, I made sure that I did not check that box or any of the other boxes that would require a user to sign in. if you are within an organization like myself, Torrance Unified, then you might need to make sure that you uncheck that box or else, once again, people outside of your organization will not be able to access your form.
And in the third area, you choose, what do you want your audience to see? Do you want them to be able to edit their response? Do you want them to see a summary of the responses of other people who have completed before? So that is up to you.
Still on settings, still on settings, let's talk about the quiz settings. Now at the beginning, I told you that a Google Forms quiz is different than other forms because you can add an answer key. And you can add points. So pretty much any form that you open, any template that you open can be turned into a quiz by selecting this option.
So you don't necessarily have to open a blank quiz. When you open a blank quiz, you simply already have this checked for you. But you can do this to any form. So what I did today, what I did for your quiz today is I checked the first option, which was immediately after each submission. And you were all able-- if you submitted this quiz, you were able to see your answers. And you were able to see the answer key.
So that is what immediately it will do. It will require an answer key. If you want to take the time, review everybody's response one by one, then you would select the latter later after manual review. And of course, once again, what do you want your audience to be able to see after they submit their quiz?
So today, you were able to see your missed questions, the correct answers, and the point values. And that is up to you. Got it. Now just like here, right where if you select collect email addresses, that will automatically ask your users to sign into Gmail.
There are a couple of other options in your settings and in your questions that will require users to sign into Gmail. So it's important to keep that in mind because making some of these selections might limit your audience. And you just have to keep that in mind.
So other settings and questions that will require your users to sign in are the option of allowing people to respond one time, asking for email addresses, like I already mentioned, allowing them to edit their response or sending a response email, and asking people to upload files. It will ask them to sign in so that they can have the ability to upload work from Google Drive. More on that later.
And of course, if you restrict the form to users in your organization, they will have to be signed in with the email address from that organization. Am I doing OK? Should I stop for questions?
Speaker 1: I think we're OK, Monica.
Monica Espinoza: Awesome, awesome, awesome. I don't want to lose anybody. The fun is just about to begin. So now I have opened my Google Form. I have tweaked some of the settings in my Google Form. And now I'm ready to get down and dirty and create some questions.
So this is a snapshot of what your question field will look like. I have added some numbers here for reference. And number one, this is where you're going to type your question, your question field. I'm going to refer to this as a question field in the next activity. This is your question field, where you will type in a description, or you will type in instructions, or type in an actual question.
Now number two, these little six dots will allow you to click and drag this question to a different order in the form. Now number three, I want you to look at the image in number three and the image in number five. Now both of these are to add pictures. But number three will allow you to add the picture within this question, within this question.
If you click on number five-- if you click on number five to add an image, your image will be added without a question field. So you can try that later on when you get into the hands-on part of it. In number four, you are going to open this dropdown menu to select the question type.
There are about 10 question types I believe. So it is up to you which one you want for what purpose you want. Number five, this little toolbar on the right, you have different options. We are going to be working with this little plus sign, which gives you the opportunity to add a question, add a question, add images, video, add section, add a title or a description.
And that little arrow is for those of you who already have Google Forms created, and maybe you don't want to create this Google Form entirely from scratch. There are three or four other questions from a different form that you made previously, and you want to add them. So rather than typing them all over again, you can click on this, on this little sheet with an arrow. And it will give you the option to import questions from your previous Google Forms.
Number six, the area number six is where your responses will be typed or where the responses will be logged if it's a checkbox, a multiple choice, whatever question type you decide on. Number seven is to add an answer key or points. Again, you don't have to add them. It's optional. But once again, that depends on your purpose.
Do you want to? Today, I added an answer key. And I added points because I wanted to see your score immediately after you submitted this quiz. Number eight duplicates the question. It duplicates the question type, any media that you add to your question. So all of those settings, answer key points, it will also duplicate.
And number nine will be the area where you designate the question as required or not required. I hope that you are ready because now it is going to be your turn. But let me walk you through. Let me walk you through a couple of the examples.
Now at this point, I am going to split my screen so that it can make it easier for you to view.
Speaker 1: --and Monica?
Monica Espinoza: Yeah?
Speaker 1: Could we stop, before we start to practice, just for a few questions that have been repeated?
Monica Espinoza: Most definitely.
Speaker 1: When you collect email addresses, that means that the user has to have a Gmail?
Monica Espinoza: Yes.
Speaker 1: If you do not have that selected, do the people that are filling out the form need to have a Gmail? So if you don't collect email addresses, do they still have to have an email in order to fill out the form?
Monica Espinoza: No, they do not. However, it is important to keep in mind that simply by selecting that, that is not-- let me put that up on my screen one more time. If you collect email addresses, that's not the only way that email addresses will be collected.
You know there are-- just like I said, there are other settings that will require your users to sign in. So if you do not want your users to sign in like you didn't have to today, you have to make sure none of these settings are selected and that you're not asking these types of questions.
Maybe some of you today have Gmail or don't have Gmail, but nobody was asked to sign in. Nobody was asked to sign it. So just keep that in mind. I hope that answers your question.
Speaker 1: Next question, it's kind of two parts. So when someone's filling out the form, can they come back to it later and finish it? Or do they have to do it all in one setting?
Monica Espinoza: So that is a great question. Now if their browser times out or they clean out their cache or cookies, then they will have to open the form up again and start all over. Now if they just leave their browser open like how I have it on my phone or on my computer and I step away for a few minutes, then it will most likely still be there. If you close that window with that tab where you have the form open, they will have to start all over.
Speaker 1: And I'm not sure what this question is about. And then what do I enter to tell the form to collect that email address? That was in the settings.
Monica Espinoza: Yes.
Speaker 1: And you already addressed that there's lots of different settings here and there. So you have to look for them.
Monica Espinoza: Exactly. So you have to be very careful about what settings and what questions you were asking in your form if you do not want to-- if you want your audience to be non-Gmail users as well.
Speaker 1: I think that's got it.
Monica Espinoza: So let me go ahead and set up our hands-on. And I will walk you through a few examples for this hands-on portion. So on the same handout, on page three, I created an example quiz for you.
So in this next part of the webinar, you are going to get down and dirty and create a quiz. Now if you're lacking some inspiration, you've got-- I provided you some inspiration so you don't have to think too much about what questions to ask. So the first thing that I have done is I have gone to Google Forms. I've gone to my Google Forms, and I have selected Blank Quiz.
Now once my blank quiz is open, I will go ahead and make adjustments to my settings. First of all, I'm going to remove the restriction. And since I have to send back scores, I will collect email addresses. Students would tell this to me. And they would tell me all the time, teacher, we don't see your screen.
So I'm at Google Forms. I selected a Blank Quiz. So the first thing that I'm going to do is I opened my blank quiz. And now I'm going to change my settings. So once again, I will opt to collect email addresses because I want to be able to email people their scores after I have reviewed their responses.
I will remove the restriction. Respondents, let's allow them to edit after submit. Quizzes, that is already selected. And I am going to select Later because I want to be able to go back individually and give people feedback and assign points.
Students will be able to see missed questions, correct answers, and point values. I've saved that. And now I can type in a title. Let's see, webinar one of three, for example. In the form description field, you can add instructions. You can add links. But it has to be text, text only. In the form description, you cannot add media.
So here is where you can add instructions, or a description, or any links. This is automatically there. And it is required because I selected to collect email addresses. Now I'm ready to add questions. --to add questions. So my first question.
Now if you see, my window is a little smaller. So my toolbar appears at the bottom instead of on the right side. But it's the same options. So I'm not ready, sorry. Let's customize a theme. I like this blue. I've selected a different font, background color, anything colored.
You can even add an image if you'd like, if it makes it more personal for your audience. So there you go. Now my form looks a little more customized. Got it. So I have provided you with some examples. Here are some examples for questions.
Now I have given you an example question for most question types. So the first example that I give you is for a short answer response. So if we remember, I will go to my drop down menu. And I will select Short Answer. Short Answer.
Now it tells me to insert an image of a celebrity. So let's see. I don't know. There seems to be a theme. So let's just continue with Michael Jackson. I went to Google image search. And you can also find images in different areas. I just went to Google image search.
What's really nice about the Google image search is that the results will always be for public domain use. So you don't have to worry too much about licensing restrictions. So I have selected a picture. And once you select the picture, a blue bar will appear at the bottom. And you can insert the image. And now the image is within your picture.
I'm sorry, within your question. So I'm just going to resize that. I'm going to resize that. Now in my question field I'll type, who is this? Now let's assign an answer key. I will add the correct answer.
Oh my goodness, sorry. Michael Jackson. Now in this answer key, it's important for you to remember that-- what are acceptable answers for you? So maybe you would also accept sign Or maybe you would accept if a student or if a user didn't capitalize. So you would have to type in any correct answer that you would accept.
So these are just examples of what a user could respond. And it would be marked correct. And I will mark all other answers as incorrect. And I will give this question two points and click Done.
So now if we go to the Preview-- Preview, here you go. When the student or when the user is completing the form, this is what they will see. And you can go ahead and close that. It doesn't erase any of your work. You can just go back to your-- close the tab and the form is still open.
So now it tells me I'm at-- on the question toolbar, it says to click the plus sign to add a question. And that is going to take me to a different question type. And this one is a multiple choice question. I've already selected it. It's multiple choice.
So let's do the same thing. Now let me show you the difference between adding an image here and adding an image here. So as you see in the first question, the image is within the question field.
Now let me add an image here. Let's do a picture of a puppy. Adorable. I've selected it. It's in blue. I go to my blue bar, and I select Insert. Now if you see here, my question is still there. But my picture, my image, appears in a separate little box. It doesn't have a question field.
It only allows an image title. So that's the difference between adding an image from the toolbar and adding an image within the question field. So if I go back to my instructions, it tells me to also insert an image of a celebrity.
So I will run a Google image search. And let's do, I don't know, let's do Michael Jackson again or Michael Jordan. He came up. Here you go. I've selected my image. It isn't now in a blue frame. And I will select Insert.
--going to resize. --resizing the picture by clicking on the blue squares, on any of the corners of blue squares. There you go. You can make that as big or as small as you want. So it tells them to type in, who is this?
And now I'm adding multiple choice answers. So option 1, let's say, Michael Jordan. I don't know, Dennis Rodman. And let's say LeBron James. So what I have to do now is I have to add the answer key.
So I will select the correct answer and that is Michael Jordan. And I will assign two points, two points to this question. And I am done. I am now ready to add the next question.
And once again, to do that, I will click on the little plus sign, on the plus sign. My next question type is checkboxes. On my form, checkbox is-- in the question field, I will type, mark all the correct sentences.
And let's see if this works if I copy it all at the same time. Yes it did. Beautiful. So now I will add the answer key. She likes walking. And she likes to walk. I will add two points. And that's it.
Once again, I would repeat the process for adding a question. Now since I have your attention now, before I ask you to try this on your own, I'd like to show you how to setup file upload, a file upload question.
Now as I told you before, Google will not accept 100% of all types of files that exist in this world. And so this question type will come with its own settings. Now I want my students to send me a picture of something in their house, let's imagine.
So I am going to allow only images. I don't want any PDFs. I only want them to submit images. Now what I have found in my experience is that the images that Google will accept are JPEGS, PNGs, and GIFs. I haven't tried anything else.
This I know from what students have tried to submit. I have searched high and low for something official from Google specifying what type of files they accept. But I have not found anything. And so this is something that I have learned by students telling me, teacher, I cannot submit my work. So this is what I have learned.
Now I am going to allow them to submit, let's say, five pictures. And each file will be 10 megabytes. You can change the file size that you allow. Now if you look here, it gives you a little notice that this form can accept up to one gigabyte of files.
So that means that if you have 20 students submitting five pictures each in a (INAUDIBLE), what happens if you reach that one gigabyte of files turned in? What that does is your form stops accepting responses. And that's very easy to fix. All you have to do is just change this.
If you see the maximum size of all files uploaded, I'm going to change that to 10 gigabytes. Now the one annoying thing about Google Forms is that it will keep sending you a reminder. Every time that somebody submits work, it will send you a reminder. Capacity is almost at max.
Capacity is almost reached. And while that isn't true, it just keeps sending you a reminder. And so it's a little annoying. But I haven't found a way to turn that notification off. At this point, I can answer more questions for you or you are free to give this a try and create your own blank quiz.
And I'm here to answer questions or walk you through another example. Does that sound like a good idea, Melinda and Anthony? So then let me go ahead and demonstrate another question type, which is adding-- it's not a question type. It's just adding video, adding video to your question.
So I am currently on number five. I'm currently on number five and the question type that I would like to use is a dropdown question. Now I'm going to add a video to this question. Again, you can add a video and have a different question type. Adding a video is not limited to the type of question that you select.
Now unlike the previous questions where I've added an image and the image appears within the question, adding a video will not let you do that. So what we need to do here is in my toolbar, I will add a video. I will select Add Video.
And I already have the URL selected. So I'm just going to type it in and search for it. This is indeed the video that I want. This is the video that I want. So I will click it, and then I will press the blue button to select.
And this will automatically add the video to my form. Now it says untitled video. You are free to add a title to this video, to add instructions. So for example, I will say, launch video and answer the following question. Now here, I have the option to add a question.
Now I had already added it. So I'm just going to drag it down if I can. My form is not-- There we go. I just don't have enough space on my window. There you go. No? Just kidding.
Well, it's not cooperating with me. So I'll just add another question and delete this one. So here you go. Once again, this is a drop down question. It's a drop down question. And my question is going to be, the only Black kid in the class is considered-- and I will add my options.
And what I'm doing is I'm just copying and pasting. And it's very convenient. It creates some different options instead of one whole copy and paste. So that saves me a minute. So now I will add the answer key and assign points. Got it.
And again, if you're curious about the aesthetics or how clear this form is for your audience, go back, preview, there you go. And you watch the video and answer the question that is there. Once again, if you close this tab, nothing will change on your form. There you go. How are we doing?
Speaker 2: Hi, Monica. So if we could break for a second, let's see if we can get to some of these questions here. So there is a question from Jacqueline that just came up about adding a video.
So the question is, I added the video. But it came up in a separate box so it couldn't add the questions. How do I add the video to the question box?
Monica Espinoza: So what I said is that with videos, it unfortunately does not allow us to do that. So with a video, your video will appear in a separate box. And so what I do to guide users to the question is in the title field I type, watch the video and answer the following question.
And so then, I have to add-- you would have to add a question. And that is where you would type your question or questions that are related to the video.
Speaker 2: Thank you. There's some questions about the scoring. So let's see if we can answer some of those questions. First of all, Elizabeth was wondering either today or maybe in another webinar if you're going to cover getting the scores into Google Classroom?
Monica Espinoza: So in the third webinar, we're going to talk about results, analyzing the results. And yes, I believe that I can-- I'm not as proficient in Google Classroom. But I can definitely do my homework and have something for you for the third webinar on that.
Speaker 2: Fantastic. So if you have a question where there are two possible correct answers and the student or the user only marks one of the answers instead of both, how does the student get points for that?
Do they get one point if you marked two total points for the question? Do they only get one point? Do they get both points? Do they get zero points? So how does that work?
Monica Espinoza: So unfortunately, no. Your answer key will require if you mark two answers as correct, the students will have to mark those two answers. Now what you could do is you could go back and review responses.
You could review responses, and you can see, OK, you know what, the student got one out of the two possible answers. So I'm going to give them one point. And that's the way that you could-- let me find a form where I can show this. See if I have one.
You give me one moment. So here you go. So this is one of the responses that I got from your quiz. So for example, this person happened to mark both. They marked both correct answers.
But let's imagine that this one person, they only marked one. So if you go to the points section-- here you go. Here's where you can add more points or reduce their points.
Does that answer your question? And that's the way that you can change the point value to a student's response. So you could give them credit. It would just involve you going back to each response and looking through the students response.
So in my personal opinion, I would try to avoid these types of questions. Maybe instead of asking it as one question, maybe you can divide it and ask two questions, if that makes sense. So it's just easier on you. And you don't have to go back and double check and assign points for half correct answers.
Speaker 2: And Monica, while we're there, somebody was asking in that Add Individual Feedback option, what do we put there typically?
Monica Espinoza: So here is where you could, if you give me one moment-- in this Add Individual Feedback, you can type in-- you can add a link. Or you could say something like, great work. Or you could, let's say, let's add a link.
And I can say-- let's just imagine I added a link to a video, to some kind of instructional video. And I can say, watch this video to understand the concept better. And so let's just type in something in here very quickly.
So I would add it and save. And now when I send the student their score, they will see my individual feedback. And they will see my little message. And the student can click on that link and watch the video or see a picture that I have ask them to read for review for example.
That's a pretty useful feature. One way that I have used this is, for example, I recorded a tutorial or maybe me going over the answers to homework. And I record that. And I add the video. I add it as feedback for the form.
So now every time when students receive their scores, everyone will see that feedback. And let me show you how to do that. So for example, I will click on a question. And I will add answer key and add answer feedback.
So now when I type feedback in the Google Form-- so here if you notice, I'm in the questions, not responses. So any feedback that I add here will be visible to all recipients of this form after they submit the form.
So something that I'll type, for example, is-- I don't know. This looks great. I will send you your score in three days. And I can save that. And now all students will be able to see that feedback when they received their score.
So those are two different ways that you can add feedback. One way, if I add feedback in the questions, everyone will be able to see that feedback. And when you are reviewing responses and you add individual feedback, that feedback will only go to that person.
So I think everyone was able to see the link to this video, correct? So that's what I did. I added the feedback in the questions so that everybody could see it once they submitted their response. I hope that answers-- that was a long response. I hope that answers your question.
Speaker 2: Yeah. Thank you, Monica. And then we do have one more question in the Q&A. So the question is about inserting math symbols into either your question or your answers. Do you have any recommendations about math symbols that could be added?
Monica Espinoza: You know what? Hang on one second. What did I do? So regarding the math symbols, I'm, for example, 2 plus 2. Google will automatically identify the type of question that you're trying to ask. So if they see some kind of a mathematical symbol, sometimes it will--
I'm not getting it now. I'm sorry. It will default to the type of response that you can get. Now as for math symbols, I don't know how you can add them. If you have a keyboard shortcut for your symbols-- but there is no way on Google Forms per se, where it will give you the symbol, the options, for mathematical symbols.
However, I am sure that there is some kind of add-on for Google forms. That you can find on the G Suite that would help you with that. I know if you find an add-on and you could apply it to Google Forms, and I can show you how to look for add-ons right now. So-- Yeah?
Speaker 2: Oh, sorry. So a couple of recommendations coming in the chat. Melinda said, actually, you can add them as a picture or a drawing. Oh, OK. And then Elizabeth recommended if you put spaces in between the math question, so 2 space times space 2, rather than altogether.
Monica Espinoza: Oh, OK. Then it will like default the value.
Speaker 2: Yeah.
Speaker 2: I wonder if you also need to-- oh, there you go. Well, that's going to bring up that response validation. Yes.
Monica Espinoza: Yes. So I mean, that's helpful. But unfortunately-- so Melinda says that we can add it as a drawing?
Speaker 2: --or a picture. Yeah.
Monica Espinoza: --or a picture? OK. Got it. Now I would go for the less-- try to work easiest as I could. And I would go to the G Suite first and see if there's some kind of add-on on Google Forms for that.
And let me show you how you can do that. Now if you go to your Google apps at the bottom, you can go to More From G Suite Marketplace. And you can type here. You can look for something related to Google Forms.
So these are all of the many programs that you can add to Google Forms to help you do different things with Google Forms. I don't see anything. --icons, icons for slides and docs. So as you can see, there are lots, and lots, and lots of add-ons that you could add to your Google Form.
If there is nothing here that is worth your time, I would recommend that you write to Google and that you-- I'm sure you're not the only one with this request. And they are receptive. They may not do it then and there, but they might consider it for a future release, for a future version of Google Forms.
Speaker 2: Monica has covered a lot today. [laughter] So [laughter] Monica, can you give us a little preview of-- or do you know right now of what you're planning for two and three for the next--
Monica Espinoza: I sure do.
Speaker 2: OK. So why don't we cover that first.
Monica Espinoza: We'll get to that. Got it. So I hope that you have found today valuable and that you offer me constructive feedback. I have two more webinars to give. So I would love for you to be here, and join me, and get the most out of your time.
So looking ahead, you know part two next Thursday, we're going to talk about sharing the Google Form. So I hope that between this time and next time, if you create a Google Form or a quiz so that you could practice sharing it.
Now if you don't, that's fine. You don't have to. You could use one of mine that I will share with you. Now what you're going to do is we're going to learn to share it different ways. So I'm going to show you how to hyperlink text to your Google Form.
So for those of us who are, for example, managing a website, how to create a hyperlink so students don't see that long URL, that long link that you saw in the checkbox. So just how to clean it up and make it look a little nicer.
So I'll show you how to create a hyperlink. And secondly, I'll show you how to use a URL shortner. Specifically, I'm going to be talking about Bit.ly, B-I-T dot L-Y. That's the one I'm going to be focusing on. And most of them work in similar ways.
So that's what I will use next week. And third, I will show you how to embed, embed a form into your Google Sites. So if you've ever been on a website and the website already has the form as part of the page, you don't have to click on a link to go to a form. That is what embedding is.
So I will talk about those three things next week. And I guess anything else that might come up from the audience. And in part three of three, we will talk about viewing and analyzing your results.
