Teacher Showcase: Using Google Forms as Flashcards

Ms. Esposti, Band teacher at Dodd Middle School, is using Google Forms in a very unique way.  She has created a form that acts as flashcards for her students as they prepare for a quiz.  As you'll be able to see from the form, she presents images of notes to the students and asks them to identify them.  In the answer drop-down she presents the correct answer in all caps on the first line and then requires the student to select either "I got it!" or "I need to study this one!" from the other two lines.  Not only is this a way for Ms. Esposti's students to prepare for a quiz, but it also provides formative assessment data to her because it is logging the student's username and feedback each time they use the flashcards.  This is a very out-of-the-box way of thinking with regard to Google Forms, but goes to show how versatile this often-overlooked software is within the Google Apps suite of software.
