Google’s New Quiz-based Forms – Good Start, Ways to Go

Google recently showed off its new forms-based quiz feature to much fanfare. While the new feature is a step in the right direction, as we will see, there is still a long way to go before it becomes truly useful.

First of all, to enable Quizzes on your Form, look in the setting (little gear icon, upper right corner of form) then click “Quizzes”

Next, you see this window:


This gives you the option to “Immediately score” or use “Manual scoring” to grade the quiz. I like the fact that you can guide your respondents based on their answers.

As long as you stick with multiple choice, drop-down, or multi-answer questions, the system is just fine:


Once you create one of the mentioned question types, you can add an answer key. Very handy! Er, unless…


Now, you *could* use data validation and type in the correct response, but if you do that, the respondent would know the exact answer they had to enter. That sort of defeats the purpose of a quiz, no?

There is also the likelihood that I am overlooking something, so if there is a solution to this dilemma with the new built-in quizzes feature, please share and let us know! As I said, this is a good start, but we have a ways to go.
