How Can You Edit Questions On A Google Form?

In How To Create An Assignment In Google Classroom, we looked at how to add new learning activities in Google’s cloud-based classroom.

Today, we’re going to look at editing questions on Google Form, a resource that can be used in Google Classroom or without it.

Using Questions Through Google Forms

Google Forms essentially automates the delivery and acquisition of assessment items and data. If you’re giving a multiple choice assessment and use Google Classroom, it’s a simple solution that works if you’re willing to put in a little work up front.

We recently covered how to add and delete questions to a Google Form–and it’s not difficult. In fact, it’s so easy we’re not sure a tutorial is even needed but in order to make it as simple as possible, we’ve broken each individual action up into posts and segments to keep it obvious.

Part of the challenge here is clarifying exactly what you mean by ‘edit a question on Google Form.’ Do you mean the wording of a question? The multiple-choice responses? The order of questions? Adding images or videos?

The options aren’t overwhelming but there’s a lot of possibility here.
