  11. Ranking Questions

     

    You can also ask students to rank answer choices. Ranking is a great way for you to understand your students' personal preferences by listing several options within a survey, and asking your students to rank them in their preferred sequence. You can also use ranking questions in a quiz and ask students to rearrange the items sequentially by date, size or other options.

  13. Other Tips for creating your forms

     

    1. Any question can be marked as a required question by sliding the Answer required switch (1) to the right. This means students canít submit the Form until they have answered all of these questions.
    2.  

    3. You can rearrange questions by clicking on them and tapping the up and down arrows (2) to move them to the order you need.
    4.  

    5. Create a duplicate of any question by tapping the copy icon to the left of the question order arrows. This is ideal for adding similar question types, (E.g. Q1. First name, Q2. Last name).
    6.  

    7. Allow students to select multiple answers for Choice questions by sliding the Multiple Answers switch to the right.
    8.  

      Microsoft Forms are not stored in OneDrive; they live on the Microsoft Forms website. Your forms are sorted by date with the most recently created forms at the top and older forms further down the page. On the Forms homepage, clicking the ellipses button on the thumbnail of a form will let you copy or delete it. No response data is copied when you duplicate a form, only the questions in the order that you built the original survey or quiz.

    Adjusting Quiz and Form Settings

     

     

    Use form settings to specify deadlines, identify form responders, display correct answers for quizzes, and to set other preferences.

     

    Branching allows you to add branching logic to a survey or quiz so that it changes according to the responses to specific questions. In a survey or quiz that branches, questions appear only if they are relevant to the responder. If the questions don't apply, the responder is redirected to a different set of questions or will skip a set of questions altogether.

     

    To add branching to your quiz, go to the top right hand corner of the page and click the ellipses button (...), and then select Branching.

  14. On the Branching options page, there are dropdown menus that appear with each answer under every question. Click the arrow to see a dropdown menu. The dropdown menu contains a list of every question that follows.

    For each possible response to the question, select the question that you want to branch to. In this example, if a responder answers Yes to the first question, you want him or her to go on to the next question (#2). However, if the responder answers No to the first question, you would branch, or skip, to question #7. If you want to completely reset your form and remove branching, click the ellipses button (...), and then select Reset.
