Virtual Quizzes using Google Forms

It’s 2019.
Are you still schlepping around paper in the classroom? Making photo copies? YUCK!
Who has time for that? NOT ME!

In this post I will share with you my virtual quiz and exam system. Now, (If it has to be paper, I use a GROUP exam format – see my post on that system).

However, if you have computers in your classroom this is an easy way to cut down on PAPER!

Here is a link to the animations I use in this tutorial.

Here is a link to the animations I use in this tutorial.
