  • Collect Data - Yes! Google Forms can collect data. As your students complete activities, you can export all results to a spreadsheet, and voila...instant data.

Send home a survey for parents or use them for a class poll...by reducing the number of papers you are using, you will be able to avoid that massive pile of papers on every teachers' desk.
