Google Forms Supports Spelling Mastery

Recently I discovered the “Hoover Text” and Data Validation Features in a Google Forms. Right away I thought, “How can these features be used to support content mastery?” I came up with this Google Form idea to promote students independents as they learn to spell.

The Hoover Text feature allows one to add a clue if the students are having a hard time spelling the suggested word. In addition the “Data Validation” can help by limiting the letters for the spelling words to the exact amount of characters needed. In the below sample the spelling of cat provided an opportunity to use the text validation tool. Instead of limiting the characters I set the form for preventing a common spelling mistake from occuring. When Google Forms is used in a manner like this it provides opportunities for 100% Mastery.

I believe when a child works independently discovering their errors, and fixing them it supports the student with internalizing what they are learning. This is one reason why 100% Mastery is beneficial for the learning process. It also supports the benefits a student gains from the “Power of Positive Reinforcement.”

Google Forms Data Validation

Data Validation provides a wide variety of uses and instructions. Due to this I’m going to refer you to the Doc’s Editor Help Center Article for instruction on how to use. Please go to the Validate Answers in your Form for further instruction.

      I don’t see how this idea compares to captchas or a Turing Test. It is not about what a machine can generate to appear humanlike. The concept in this post was about providing supports for mastery and boosting a student’s esteem for achievement. It is about differentiating testing to provide an opportunity for all students to achieve mastery of content.
