In the last part you learned how to create a self-marking Google Forms quiz. Now we will see that there is always more to learn, and always more to explore. Even though you have learned how to create self-marking forms, your journey is not at an end. Sadly, your journey with me has all but reached its conclusion. In this part you will be exposed to a few more features you can explore on your own time to fully unlock the power of Google Forms.
You will find a few more features that could be useful to your Google Forms experience in this section.
Exporting Results to Google Sheets
On the results screen you will notice a white cross in a green square. Clicking on this will allow you to format all responses as a Google Sheet.
This file can be used in Excel or in Google Sheets. There are a number of complex calculations you can do with raw data generated by Google Forms.
Releasing Pre-Filled Forms
Sharing a pre-filled form can be accomplished by using the three-dot-menu at the top of your form, and selecting Get pre-filled link. This will take you to a page where you can answer a number of questions. When you click submit you will be given a link. Any user who uses that link will start with your pre-filled answers, rather than blank answers.
Shuffling Response Options
From the three-dot-menu for a specific question you can select “Shuffle option order”. This will randomize the order the answers are shown for that question.
This could prevent users from looking at other screens and selecting “the second option”.
Do not worry, this will not affect the self-marking correct answer.
Shuffling Question Order
Similar to shuffling responses, you can set the form to shuffle the order of the questions. This can be set in the Presentation section of the form settings.
This is not recommended if you use videos or images, as they will be shuffled too!
In our Next Part you will be able to download a PDF guide that can be printed out for convenient offline access.
