MORE Exciting Google Forms Updates


Google has again updated their Forms to make them more user friendly and customizable. There are now options to shuffle questions, allow only one response from a person, and validate information for grid responses.

Shuffling Questions and One Response:
There is now an option to shuffle questions to randomize the order of questions on quizzes or surveys. Have you ever gotten several responses from the same person on a quiz or survey and had to decide which one to use? Now you can ensure that a person only responds to your form once.
Both of the options are easy to use. When editing the form, there is a box at the top labeled “Form Settings”. Both of these options are now located here. Simply check the box next to the desired option(s).


Validate Information for Grid Responses:
When using grid style questions, form creators now have the ability to limit responders to one response per column. After inserting a Grid question, click on the “Advanced settings” option at the bottom of the question.


Once selected, the “Advanced settings” option will show a validation message stating not to select more than one response per column.

If you don’t see these options yet, don’t worry. Just like most updates, Google releases it over the span of a couple of weeks. So keep an eye out for it.

Things to keep in mind with Google Forms:

  • Forms are not shared the way other Google documents are shared. To share a form, you need to provide the person with the link to the form.

  • Dont forget to collect names, either by selecting the option in the form settings OR by adding it in the form.

  • When assigning a form in Google Classroom, it DOES NOT give the students an option to turn in the assignment after completing the form. Right now, the only way to determine if students have completed it, is to look at the forms response spreadsheet.


A possible “solution” for this would be for students to click on the Create button for the assignment and create a blank document.


It will automatically name it after the assignment and add the student’s name.


The student now has the option to “Turn In” the assignment indicating that they have completed the form, and the teacher can now see who has or has not completed the assignment.
