Google Forms a Magical Tool

Imagine a student who does poorly on assessments all of sudden turning it around. Could it be possible for this child to receive 100% all the time? Why of course they can! Especially if the assessment is focused upon mastery. Imagine how this could bolster a student’s esteem. A Google Form just may be the magical tool you’re looking for!

Google Forms Magical Tool for Math

The magical force hidden within this Google Math Form is “All Students Finish with a Passing Grade.”  How can this be done? This Google Form provides more than one  opportunity to provide the answer. If a student answers a question wrong the next page leads to a repeat of the question with a visual, video or interactive support. After viewing the support the student has a second chance at answering the question. You can try it out here:

TIP: Answer the first question wrong!

The beauty of this tool is even thought the student has the opportunity to achieve 100% all the time it still provides valuable assessment information.

NEW Google Forms Makes Data Evaluation Easier

Recently a colleague asked, “How is everyone easily evaluating their Google Form Data?” This is when I noticed one of the “Big” differences between the old & new Google forms. The New Google Forms makes data evaluation easier both within the form and linked data collection spreadsheet.

In the Forms edit mode it allows the creator to see a quick view of group summary responses. It also allows the teacher to view individual responses for further analysis.

When a Teacher links the Google Form to a spreadsheet for data collection this provides the ability to view the data with a variety of graphs. The New Google Spreadsheet makes this very easy to do. All the analysis information lies under the tips of one’s fingers. The teacher simply clicks on the plus sign in the lower right hand corner of the spreadsheet. This will open a window with a variety of graphs suitable for the data collected. Thanks to both Google Forms and Spreadsheets Teachers are able to quickly access and view assessment information in ways which weren’t possible before.

10 & 20 Frame Thanks to Google Slides

This Google Slide 10 & 20 Frame Manipulative was inspired by conversations via my Twitter PLN.  I find Google Slide to be an easy way for creating quick manipulatives which can pack a powerful punch. The manipulatives can be used with an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) or large touch screen for whole group and small group instruction. It can also be used by the individual student for practice or support on a one to one device.

One of the beauties of using a Google Slide as a manipulative is it can be accessed outside of school. This may provide the student with extra support for doing homework, independent practice or studying before a test.  When the manipulative is shared between the teacher and student it can provide valuable insight for how the information is being digested by the student. This information may assist a teacher in deciding if  re-teaching is necessary for the content covered by the manipulative. I see manipulatives of this kind as a “Win-Win” for both the teacher and student.
