LEARNING ACTIVITY #1: GOOGLE FORMSAttached Files:
Google Forms is a useful tool to help you plan events, send a survey, give students a quiz, or collect other information in an easy, streamlined way. A Google form can be connected to a Google spreadsheet. If a spreadsheet is linked to the form, responses will automatically be sent to the spreadsheet. Otherwise, users can view them on the “Summary of Responses” page accessible from the Responses menu.
- Read through the Google Forms Scoring Guide.
- Watch Using Forms in Google Drive video to get an overview of Google Forms.
- You are going to create a Google Form that ties into the theme of your website. There are many different options for why you would create a Google Form. For businesses, you might create a Google Form to get information from your prospective customers. If you have an educational site, you might use a Google Form as a homework submission or to have students do reflections. For informational sites, you might survey visitors to your site to get their feedback on the content of your site.
- Examples of how you might use Google Forms [See Bonus Activity #2 for Taking Notes (1 point)]
- Click here to watch a screencast that will show you how to create a Google Form. Here is a reference document that can help you as well.
- Your Google Form must include:
- There must be a title and a brief description.
- The form must contain at least five questions, each being of a different question type.
- You must also apply a theme to your form.
- Make sure to rename your document and that you give a meaningful name related to your form, like “A Survey on Dorm Life”, names like “My First Form” are not acceptable.
- When you are finished:
- Submit the URL into the Blackboard assignment link below.
- Add the LIVE GOOGLE FORM to the appropriate page of your website.
If at all possible, administer your Google Form to 5 or more participants within the next couple of weeks. The plan is to use the data for another activity.

M7.3 Class Activity – Peer Review Website
This activity will be done in class, with a partner. Your instructor will guide the class through each criteria of the attached Website Peer Review #1 criteria list.
Preparation for peer review:
- Open your Meeting Log to the THINKSHARE section below the one-on-one meetings. This is where you will take notes when your partner reviews your website with you. [note: I left an “S” out of THINKSHARE that you should fix.]
- Open your website.
- Read the attached Website Peer Review #1 criteria list. Consider your own website as you are reading one criteria at a time.
- Show your website to your partner, one criteria at a time.
- Ask your partner for feedback and suggestions. Ask specific questions you want to know, and allow them to share their perceptions. This is a two-way conversation about your site.
- Repeat this process for your partner’s website.
Access the class’ Website & Planning Map Links, if needed for convenience.
