If you are not a Google or Google Forms fan, the newest update to Forms may make you jump on the band wagon.
Google Forms have been used for years to make tests, quizzes, and surveys and allows users to use an add-on called "Flubaroo" to grade it in a matter of minutes.
Well, this grading feature only works for question types that have a definite answer (multiple choice and true or false). Although that is still better than nothing, it was tough when teachers included essay questions and wanted to grade them easily.
Until now, that was not an option. Google Forms now has the capability to allow the teacher to use "Flubaroo" to grade multiple choice, true or false, and short responses or long responses. As part of this process, the teacher can read responses, enter a point value, and add typed feedback to that response.
Adding feedback to student answers only works if your quiz or test has a question for your students to add their email address. This email address is needed so teachers can grade their test, add feedback, and email the results to students.
With this tool in your belt, you will be happy to see yourself spending less time grading. Grading with Google Forms is still highly effective as you have the option to provide valuable feedback.

FYI - Google Forms has a new purple icon, and there will be a updated version of creating and editing forms shortly.
