Making It Happen Monday - 6 New Features for Quizzes in Google Forms

Google for Education has announced six new features for Quizzes in Google Forms based on from feedback from teachers over the past two years. They are:

1. Quiz answer suggestions: Forms can now predict the correct answer as you type the question, as well as provide options for wrong answers.

2. Autocomplete answers: After you type one answer, Forms will now propose related answers.

3. Automatically grade checkbox and multiple choice grid questions: Now, in checkbox grid and multiple choice grid-style questions, you can denote correct answers in the answer key, and completed quizzes are automatically assigned points based on answers,

4. Give decimal grades: You can give partial credit in Google Forms. If an answer is partially correct, you can give a half or quarter point.

5. Improve understanding with YouTube video feedback: You can now give customized feedback to students by attaching a video from YouTube.

6. See the total number of points in a quiz: Teachers told Google they would like a way to quickly reference the total number of points in a quiz as they’re editing. Now, there’s a tally of points at the top of the quiz that updates as you create or edit questions.
