We all know that Google Forms are an easy and handy way to design questionnaires and surveys; however, few people know that Google Forms can also be used to create a quiz with correct and incorrect answers for questions with multiple choices, checkboxes, or drop-down options.  For the purposes of this blog, I will assume that you already know how to create a Google Form, if you don’t know how to do so and require some assistance please visit our How To: Google Apps page.  You can also read Mark Smither’s blog “Creating a student feedback response system using Google Forms” for more information.
