Google Forms!

A triumph for the blogosphere! In an earlier post, I asked for help in thinking about what to do with the student feedback I was getting via some index cards. C. popped in and explained in the totally clear language of a teaching librarian how I could use Google Forms to wrangle that data. I did exactly what C. said to do (pretty much word for word for word) and whipped up a three-question survey for my class today. I taught, sent the students to the URL, made small talk with the professor, walked downstairs, logged on to my Google accounts, and bam! there was all my data. And so what if it mostly tells me that the questions I’m asking aren’t actually all that useful? That tells me a lot about what I’m going to do next week in my next class. And extra cheers for a tool that makes experimenting with little surveys and quizzes and online exercises quick and dirty and easy to do, and requiring no special skills to mount online prior to a class.

Thanks, C.!
