What is Microsoft Forms?

In this course, we’re going to be looking at Microsoft forms, a way to easily create surveys using a Microsoft 365 account.

Microsoft Forms is a simple tool that lets you quickly create a quiz or a survey, collect responses in real time, and view automatic charts to visualise your data.

You can build a form in minutes and your students can fill it out on any browser without having to install a separate app.

With Microsoft Forms, you can create:

  • Quizzes: Measure student knowledge, evaluate class progress, and focus on topics that need improvement
  • Polls: Find out what the class thinks of your trip idea, where the team wants to meet, or how attendees react to your presentation.
  • Conduct surveys, collect feedback for students, parents or school colleagues, measure employee satisfaction, and organise team events

You can create quizzes which grade automatically, or include long answers in a quiz which you can grade manually. You can also provide automated or manual feedback to students.

Putting it into Practice

You can use Microsoft Forms to assess your students, collect feedback from parents, and collaborate with other educators. Why not try creating a Form and sharing it with fellow staff or learners. Here are a couple of examples to get you started:

  1. Create surveys, quizzes, and polls, and easily see results as they come in.
  2. Share quizzes with your students using any web browser, even on mobile devices.
  3. Create assessments as a team by sharing a quiz draft with other educators.
  4. Export data, such as quiz results, to Excel for additional analysis or grading.
