Google Forms offers a quick, free, and easy solution to creating simple forms. In a matter of minutes, you can create solutions to collect data from a large number of users. Some classroom solutions include project submission forms, student interest surveys, administration walk throughs, and much more.
One of the reasons that many users may be unaware of Google Forms is that they are found not as a separate app, but rather as part of Google Drive.
Thus, to create a new form, you will first log into Gmail or Google Apps, and then click on Drive in the top navigation bar.
Click on Create, Form and you will be taken into the Form Editor.
Try creating a new Google form through your Google Drive.
It is vital to understand that every Google Form comes with three parts.
1) The spreadsheet: This is where the data gets collected, and the spreadsheet is actually where you will go to access your form editor and live form after the initial setup.
2) The form editor: This is where you add, edit, and remove form items. This is where you start when you create a form, but to get here later, you'll need to go through the spreadsheet (see above).
3) The actual form: This is what your respondents will see when completing the form. It will be important to share the link to this form and not to the spreadsheet or form editor (more on this below). This is where you will also see the theme applied as opposed to the bare bones look of the form editor.
Close all of your other tabs (leave this one open), and try logging back into Google Apps.
1) Click on Drive
2) Find the spreadsheet for your recently created Google Form and open this item.
3) Click on Form, Edit Form. You will now be in the form editor.
4) Look for the published form link at the bottom of the editor (also accessible from the spreadsheet Form menu). Click on this link and you will have viewed all three parts of a Google Form.
Once you have created and shared your form, it's time to review the responses that you've collected.
If you recall, there are three parts of every Google Form. The data is collected in the spreadsheet part of the form.
Take a look at the form data, and you'll note the following:
From Google Drive, open your Spreadsheet for the form. Try sorting various columns, or viewing the Summary of Responses to start analyzing your data.
