G Suite Updates: Google Form Features


The Checklist/ Multiple Choice Grid Hybrid

On July 10th, 2017,  Google announced updates for Google Forms.  The most exciting Forms update is the addition of the Checkbox grid.  This functions just like the Multiple choice grid question, except you can choose more than one answer in a row!  And, you know it functions like a Checklist question because the clickable fields are square.  They function the same way!  So, let’s say you want to create a form for class t-shirt/sweatshirt sales, and your row headings are the shirt types, and the column headings are the sizes.  If a student wants a sweatshirt, and so does his little sister, he can choose the two sizes.  In an original Multiple choice grid question, that would not be possible.  There are many ways that you could use this in the classroom for quizzes, polls, questionnaires, order forms, et cetera.

One of Several Updates

This feature is the most exciting for me, but there are more! Below is a short video example how the Checkbox grid works.  Also, you can access the original Google Forms update article here: “G Suite Update Alerts:  Smarter Google Forms”.
