Math Tech Tips: g(Math) for Forms will now create Multiple Choice Question!! | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

The top feature request for g(Math) for Forms has been to create a Multiple Choice question. I have been working on this feature for months and meant to release it when g(Math) crossed 250,000 users. Well....that was delayed due to some unforeseen bugs, but it has been live for a few weeks. I have been slow to update the documentation and have finally added some documentation to gMath.gur

Updates from ISTE: 4 new tools to help teachers do what they do best

Updates from ISTE: 4 new tools to help teachers do what they do best | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Gerald Carey's insight:
These four tools have some great uses in Education but it is the third one in this list that I want to focus on.  It is an improvement to Google Forms when using multiple choice or true/false questions.  In the new version, students can get immediate feedback at the end of the quiz if you use the "Answer Key' option! Students simply click on the "View your score" button.
You can also give feedback for correct and incorrect answers. You still get the benefits of knowing what each student got and, apparently, it is integrated with Google Classroom.

Quizizz Review and Tutorial: A Better Kahoot?

A quick introduction to Quizizz, a classroom quiz application that allows you to build, borrow, and play a live version quiz game or assign it as homewor
Gerald Carey's insight:
I am somewhat reluctant to share third party applications that use Google Classroom because I don't use Classroom myself and I can't test it.  However, this application (Quizizz) looks interesting. It is similar to Kahoots! but allows you to set quizzes for homework and integrate the results in Google Classroom.
You don't need to use Google Classroom, so it might be worth a look if you are looking for an alternative to Kahoots!

Super Quiz - Google Sheets add-on

Super Quiz - Google Sheets add-on | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Super Quiz adds brilliant functionality and assessment tools to a quiz made with Google Forms.
Gerald Carey's insight:

Might be worth a try if you are looking for added functionality to Google Forms and Sheets.

It's a Google Chrome add-on so it won't work with IE or Firefox (I think).
