Create a Quiz with Google Forms

This is a video on how to use Google Forms to create a self grading quiz.

This next video goes over quickly some of the basics from the first video, but I he has a quiz made with different ideas of content as well as what you can see for feedback once the students have taken the quiz.

You can embed Google Forms into your Canvas course. Canvas does have its own quizzing feature that will grade and then send scores to gradebook. If you use the quiz feature in Google Forms it will not send the score over to gradebook, but it may have other features or uses that you might like to use. You could use this embed feature with or without the quiz feature activated and for information you may not want sent over to gradebook such as enter and exit tickets.

To get the embed code click send on your Google form and then click the two arrow points then highlight the code and copy. Then follow direction sent out previously on how to put the code onto your canvas page.


Padlet and How to Embed Padlet in Canvas


The embed tool in canvas gives you a lot of options to use different online tools. The great thing about using the embed tool is that you don't have to send students away from your canvas course to another website to use and you don't have to go away from Canvas to see what students have done. Not all websites offer a way to embed, but you should take advantage of all of those that do. Padlet is a great tool for all sorts of things and can be embedded onto your canvas pages.

Padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device. You can set comments to need approval before showing to everyone. This will prevent you having someone post inappropriate material or not in your class.
