It seems as though every year teachers struggle to learn tidbits about their new students such as how they like to learn, what study skills they need help with, and more.
How often have you collected this information only to realize later that you cannot really make much sense of it all?
Try using Google Forms to collect your student information instead and sort the information with Sheets.
Using Forms can help you with the following:
- The simple pie charts give you a quick snapshot of student answers.
- Collect user names automatically
- Sheets allows you to sort the data based of various parameters or create filters to only see that data you're interested in at the time For example:
- Sort by students that prefer auditory learning, visual learners, etc.
- Sort based on topics students struggle with
- Sort based on test taking or study strengths for group work
- Each column and row can be formatted to your liking, just as in docs. You can also rearrange the data or SORT it based on various factors. Don’t worry that the data will become jumbled, sheets is smart and will keep your data in line so it doesn’t get scrambled.
- To SORT a column of data
- In the menu, choose DATA >Filter. You’ll notice the columns get highlighted and have an arrow next to it.
