If you are hesitant to administer Google Forms as an assessment piece because you are afraid students will navigate elsewhere to find answers, you are in luck. Google Classroom has just released a beta update that resolves this apprehension.
After you have created a quiz using Google Forms, you can attach it to an assignment for your students to complete. You now have the option to click “Locked Mode on Chromebooks.” This feature does just that. Once students open that form, they are not able to navigate anywhere else.
Moreover, if a student does exit the form and log back in, it will send an email notification to the teacher and add a clock icon to their score in your classroom grades.
Please note, if you want your students to be able to navigate elsewhere to find answers, they still have that option. Simply do not click this new feature and your students will be able to Google as they wish!
