You may quickly create a quiz that can be scored automatically or manually and rapidly assess student understanding using Google Forms with the quiz feature. There are a variety of available question formats such as multiple choice, true/false, short answer that may be used in the template. Point values may be assigned to each question or not scored. Answer keys are created for automatic scoring and providing additional feedback to students. You may incorporate video or other media into the questions. Results are available with both individual and class scores generated by a question or overall score. Data may be exported to a spreadsheet for further manipulation with a press of a button.
