Three Common Google Forms Mistakes – And How to Avoid Them

I’ve been helping teachers create quizzes with Google Forms for well over a decade. And over that time there’s a pattern to the Google Forms problems that teachers bring to me. My completely unscientific data on this tells me that about 90% of all problems with Google Forms quizzes come down to one of three issues. 

The most common mistakes I see teachers make when creating quizzes with Google Forms are:

  • Releasing answers right away. 
    • That’s a problem if you don’t want students to know the answers before the whole class has had a chance to complete the quiz. 
  • Forgetting to assign point values. 
    • This is an annoying issue because then you have to manually update scores. 
  • Forgetting to collect student information. 
    • This can be avoided by using Google Classroom.
