We’re halfway through 2020. This week I’m taking some time off from the blog to work on some other projects. The rest of this week I’m going to re-run some of the most popular posts and videos of the year so far.
In early May I held an informal webinar for a small group of people who were interested in learning some G Suite tips and tricks. Response validation in Google Forms was one of the things that I demonstrated toward the end of that webinar. Response validation in Google Forms lets you specify a minimum number of characters that students have to enter in order for their responses to be accepted by your Google Form.
By using response validation in Google Forms you can encourage students to keep writing if they don’t write a complete sentence in response to one or more of your questions. Response validation can’t enforce a particular sentence structure but it can enforce a minimum sentence length.
In the following video I demonstrate how you can use response validation in Google Forms to encourage students to write complete sentences.
