How to share a Google Form with your class.

Google Forms Distributed to Students on Chalkup

Teachers using Google Apps for Education have found some great ways to take advantage of Google Forms in their classrooms. However, just like with Google Docs, sharing a Google Form with your class can sometimes be challenging. How can you share a Google Form without touching your class website, or dealing with sharing permissions, or email?


There’s some great ways to use Google Forms in the classroom, and Eric Curts in his doc, outlined some great use cases:

  • Create forms, surveys, quizzes, and such

  • Allow others to complete the forms online

  • Collect all the responses in a spreadsheet

  • Provide you with helpful summaries of the collected data with charts and graphs

When it's time to actually share the Google Form, teachers need a way to do this quickly, and in a way that will actually notify their students that there is something new.  Let’s share Google Forms with your class with the least amount of effort, and where and when it makes thoe most sense. So that’s why we’ve created a way to share a Google Form with your class right inside Chalkup.

Sharing a Google Form in Chalkup.

Since your whole class is connected on Chalkup (if it isn’t yet, go ahead and create your free account here), you have everything you need. In Discussions, we have a new place for sharing these forms.

Here are the 3 simple steps:

1. Head into your already made Google Form, and grab the Grab the embed code, by clicking "More actions" at the top right, and copying the highlighted text.

2. Paste the Google Form embed code inside a Chalkup Media Discussion.

3. Students automatically get notified, and just go right into Chalkup to fill out your form.

This is a simple, yet effective way to quickly notify everyone in your class that there’s a new Google Form for them to complete. Google Forms can definitely be used to create tests and quizzes, some of them can even be self-grading! Many of the teachers using Chalkup are already using Google Forms, and we hope this makes it even easier to distribute to your students.

We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback! Leave a note in the comments.
