Using Google Forms to create surveys, quizzes… and much more!

When you have to gather information from different people, Google Forms is an useful tool that helps you store and manage all the information in a single place, where you can easily find it, analyze it, even share it if you want.

Google Forms also allows you to create (self-grading!) quizzes and other assessment tools. This is a (perhaps a bit complex) example of how to create them:
