How to Assign a Google Form to Students in Google Classroom or by Email and See Student Responses

A step-by-step on sending Google Forms to students and viewing their answers. You do not need Google Classroom to send Google Forms. They work just as good through email. Google Forms are an easy way to collect and grade student answers of math assignments completed online. In this post is a link to a video showing how to make any Google Form self-grading.

I've been updating my pdf math activities to include Google Form versions and writing posts about them, but I never stopped to write a post about how to actually assign a Google Form to students! A friend mentioned doing this and it was a giant facepalm. So this post is meant to help you assign Google Forms to students working online. 

I love Google Forms as a way to digitize math task cards because the answers are collected into a nice, neat spreadsheet that is easy to grade. You can even make them self-grading.

If I missed anything in this post or you have still have questions about assigning Google Forms to students, please leave a comment.


It's important for me to mention that you do not need Google Classroom to send Google Forms to students. You can assign a Form in Google Classroom or you can email it to students. Each way works great and both ways automatically collect student answers for you to view. I will show both ways in this post.

First, you'll need a GOOGLE Form to send to students. The one in this post is a Slope Mystery Message! activity that is part of my free math resource library. You can get it and a bunch more free math resources immediately send to your email by subscribing. 




Step 1: Make a copy of the Google Form for your Google Drive. Links that are shared are usually set to force copy, so this should be pretty automatic. 

Click into the form to open it.



Step 2: Look the Form over and if it's how you'd like it to look, click SEND in the top right corner. 



Step 3 (if sending by email): If you are sending by email, click the little letter icon and enter student email addresses.

If you are sending by email, you can skip down to Step 7.



Step 3 (if assigning in Google Classroom): If you are adding the Form to your Google Classroom, click the little link icon then Copy.



Step 4: In Google Classroom, click the Classwork tab then +Create then Assignment.



Step 5: Paste the link you had copied.



Step 6: Click Assign. This is where you can choose a due date.



Step 7: Once the assignment's due date has passed, go back to the original Google Form you had added to your Google Drive in Step 1 and toggle to Responses. This is where you can see student answers.

I hope this post is helpful! Please comment if I missed anything or you have any questions.
