Integrate Google Forms Quizzes into Learning

Did you know you can create quizzes using Google Forms that automatically calculate a score and report results? You can! Aside from making your own quizzes to test student knowledge, you can have students build their own trivia quizzes. Google Forms Quizzes is a feature that transforms any form into a quiz that includes a point value, answer key, and scoring system.

Making a quiz offers a fun way for students to develop critical thinking, improve information recall, and enhance communication skills. The theme of the trivia can be about a unit of study or based upon personal interest. Integrate the Quiz feature in Google Forms into language arts, mathematics, social studies, geography, history, science, art, music, health, or business studies.
