Since that post has been bouncing around, I’ve gotten a lot of emails and comments on the post asking more specific questions about Google Forms. In this post, I’m going to give step-by-step instructions on how I set up the Google Forms that connect with my QR codes. If you haven’t read my previous post on this topic, check it out here.
Part 1: Create the Google Form
1. Go to www.google.com and log-in.
2. In the top right corner, click the little square of 9 boxes and see a drop-down menu.
3. Click Google Drive.
4. In the left hand column, click “New”.
5. There will be a drop down menu. Click “More” for the option to see Google Forms.
6. Click Google Form and an Untitled Form will open.
- make it a multiple choice question and list the names of the students in your class so you just have to select the student
- If you choose this, select “multiple choice” on the right, then begin writing the names of the students where it says “add option”. You can do that as many times as you need to.
- or make it a short answer question and you can type the name of the student in. This is the path I chose to keep the form simple.
12. Once you have added all of the sections to your Google Form, click “SEND” in the top right corner.
14. Now, click the link that is at the top of that window to get a link that corresponds with this code. COPY THAT LINK!
Part 2: Create the QR Code
Part 3: Test It
Part 4: Checking the Results
Part 5: Save and Print
2. Go to a word document and insert the image of the code.
3. Label the QR code so you know what it is and save and print! I laminated mine and put them on a key ring so I didn’t have to re-print throughout the year if I lost one or got it dirty.
