Google Forms Back to School Inventory


Have you discovered how Google Forms can change your life?  NO???  What are you waiting for my friends???  Are you tired of grading papers?  Lugging around that heave teacher bag?  Your husband called and said he isn’t rubbing those shoulders anymore…KIDDING!  Google Form can seriously change not only your classroom, but make time for those important littles in your life (your children, husband, and fur babies).  I’m sharing today a Google Forms Back to School Inventory (FREE so keep reading) to use the first day or first week of school.

Google Form Back to School Inventory - How to use Google Form to change the way that you grade assessments.


How do you set up a Google Forms?

Here is a quick video tutorial on how I created this Google Forms for the Back to School Inventory.  You can use these same steps to set up assessments for your classroom as well!  Take a look!

Who can use Google Forms?

I think Google Forms are perfect for students in grades 3rd and up!  I certainly would try it with second graders too though!  If you use the Google Form with 3rd graders, you probably want to make each question required.  This way they don’t skip questions!  I learned that little bit of info the hard way.

What can Google Forms be used for?

  • Assessments – Do you have digital versions of your assessments?  You can easily insert “screenshots” of the assessment into a Google Form to really go paperless in your classroom.
  • Activating Strategy or Small Group Assessment – Trying to assess yesterday’s learning to form your reading or math groups?  Create a quick (3 question) assessment.  Take a look and group your students!
  • Homework – Send out the link if your students have internet access at home and let them completed assignments based on a reading passage.
  • Substitute Work – Have a sub for the day that you don’t necessarily trust?  You can insert videos into your Google Forms and then have the students answer questions based on the video!
