Comments from some of those who selected Google Forms as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“Best survey tool. No doubt.” Stefan Van De Velde, Online learning facilitator, Belgium

“I use Google Forms to identify opinions of participants in workshops, to evaluate workshops and to assess learning technologies and e-learning modules (e.g. during workshops).” Wilfred Rubens, Consultant, Netherlands

“This revolutionized my life. I put all of my quizzes into Forms and the students take it on their iPad and I get real time data back – It grades it for you (as long as it isn’t long or short answer questions)! This has cut my grading down in a huge way, and has helped me get students grades back quickly, so they can correct their work while it is still fresh, or I can reteach if necessary. Love it!” Stephanie Martin, Primary/Secondary (K12) teacher, USA

“Good for smaller surveys. Free.” Niels Johansen, HR, Denmark

“forms for clean and simple evaluation” Hedwig Belle, e-learning developer, Netherlands
