Google Forms are a tool that is a part of Google Drive. Anyone with a Google account can create a form, share the link, and easily access the results in one place.

- Create a Google Form. This can be generic, only asking for a name and answers to the pre-prepared questions. If it is done in this manner, it can be reused in different class sessions.
- Provide students the link to the form along with a few questions to answer. These questions can be any format, ranging from short answer to true/false.
- Tell students to fill out the form by the deadline - typically later that night. That way, students without laptops/smartphones with them can fill in the answers when they get home and submit the form.
- Due to the timestamps, you won’t need to worry about closing the form by the deadline.
- Once all of the students have replied, take the data from the corresponding spreadsheet. You’ll be able to easily mark who completed the exit slip, and how they responded to the questions.
- Clear all the data from the spreadsheet if you want to use the same form in the next class. If you want to save it, it can easily be exported to Microsoft Excel for later reference.
