Create a Google Form for Quick Polls, Surveys, Feedback or Attendance Collection

Google Forms are a great and easy way to create a quick opinion poll, collect feedback or survey your class. You can even create a form to collect attendance in your class, displaying the shortened URL to those in your class. Lastly, you can also use a Google Form to create a quiz.

With Google Forms, you can create and analyze surveys right in your web browser - no special software is required. Even better, multiple people can work at the same time, and every change is saved automatically.

Tips for Using Google Forms

  • You can send the form to your class either by individual email addresses, or by using a Course Google Group, which is a single email address to reach your entire class.
  • Google Forms allows you to shorten the URL, so you can display the link to your class during the class (example, for a quick poll in class, or for taking attendance).
  • If a Google Form has been set to be restricted to Ryerson University users in the form’s settings and if the student is logged in with a non-Ryerson Google account (such as a personal Gmail account), a student will not be able to access the form he logs out of his personal account. You may have to advise your students of this as they will only see a link to request access.
