Follow these steps to creating a brand new google form:
Click both the description and response validation. In the description write “enter the password to continue” . In the validation boxes, select from the drop-down menu “regular expression”. Then select “matches” and enter your password of your choosing in the pattern field. In the section “custom error text” just type “incorrect password, this will pop up if someone types in the wrong password.
Then add a page break, this is the most important step. Click on the 2 bars which will create a new section of the form. This will allow anyone taking data to have to use the password first and then go to the google form. If you choose not to use the password, move onto the next step.
ALSO, make sure that you toggle the “Required” button so that the password is required at all times.
Step three: Setting up the first goal
Go ahead and rewrite the title in the new section. (This happens when you use the page break) Write the goal (using plain English or straight from the IEP) but make sure that everyone who is taking data will know what is expected of them and materials that they need to use to track this data. You can add a description to the new section as well. I like to write what goals will be found on this form.
Then, click the plus button on the right hand side, which will give you a new “question”. This is where you will type in your first IEP goal. Depending on what your goal is asking you to do, is what type of response you will choose. You can play around with the different types of responses that you could use that would better suit your IEP goals.
If you have one goal for one form, make sure you toggle the “required” button so that the person taking the data actually takes the data. However, if you are going to put multiple goals on one data form, do not toggle this button, as the student might not be assessed on all the goals at the same time.
Add in as many goals as you would like using the plus button.
Step 4: adding in a notes section
I don’t usually put this in my own google forms, but you can also add a notes section at the bottom of the form so that people can input anything that was out of the ordinary, such as, child was distracted, or maybe they fell asleep. You may want that noted on the form. I don’t like to get so specific, because time is so limited, but it could be something that you add. Also, make sure that on this field that you make it so that it is not required, because there may not be notes that need to be taken every time that you take data.
