Need a fast, FREE method to survey your students or colleagues? Do you just want to create it and quickly send out a link or post on Blackboard for your entire class?

Advantages to Google Forms:

  • Quick and simple to create
  • Send participants a live link
  • Results are sent to a Google Spreadsheet
  • You can collaborate with others on either the form creation or the results or both
  • There are lots and lots of resources and tutorials on the web that you can refer to

Google Forms might just be the solution you are looking for. Click the survey image below for a quick tutorial. This tutorial is also posted on the Faculty Learning Corner under Web-Based Resources for future reference.

Is this secure, how about use of SSN or personal information??

7 02 2014

Security is an excellent question. Google will not allow you to ask for a social security number and you would never want personal information like a credit card added to this form. However, that said, it is secure in that you can send it to specific people, open it only to addresses, ask for names to be typed in etc.

Additionally, if you plan to use Google forms to create assessments for your course, it would be no more or less secure than an Blackboard quiz without a proctor.

Speaking of security and authentication type issues, this is your second comment on our “open blog” yet, you are still using an alias– “” We are assuming that you are a person with UAS technology administrative privileges. It would really enrich this conversation if we knew who we were talking with.
