Google Documents: Creating Quizzes

Teachers need to seek feedback in order to understand whether or not students are understanding the material. Isn't this one of the reasons why we give tests and quizzes? If we are interested in student learning, we need to know what students know and fill in the gaps where possible. Google Documents allows individuals to create online quizzes that they can then share with people. Others can collaborate on the quiz and view the results.

The results can be viewed in spreadsheet format or in graphs. Take a look at this
YouTube video on how to create quizzes and view results in graph format. Apparently, you can embed the quiz inside of your blog, so I'm giving that a try. Hopefully it works and you fill out the quiz. I do appreciate feedback. Information-literacy professionals should be seeking feedback from students. This is just one possible option.

If you are interested in creating a Google Docs quiz that you can share, just login to Google Docs and select the "New" button in the upper, left-hand corner of the task bar. Select "Form." You can create open-ended questions, multiple-choice questions, questions with check boxes, choosing from a list, and a scale. Give it a try.
