In the previous video, you created and titled a blank form in Google Forms.

In this video, you will add text and questions to your form.

To start, add a title and description.

This is the first text people will see when they take your survey.

Use the title and description to Tell your respondents what the form is about, Explain what you expect them to do, Describe how you will use the information, And give your respondents a deadline.

Next, add questions to your form.

In Google Forms you can choose several types of questions and responses.

Add questions that make the most sense for the type of feedback that you are trying to receive.

Add a multiple choice question to ask respondents to choose an answer from the options that you provided.

Type a question, then add at least four possible responses.

If respondents must answer a question on your form, make it required.

To add another question of the same type, duplicate your question, and then revise it.

You can also delete a question entirely, or delete individual responses.

Next, add another question to your form.

A checkbox question allows respondents to choose an item from a list.

Type in a list of responses.

To allow respondents to add their own response that’s not on the list, choose “other.”

To rate something on a numbered scale, add a “linear scale” question.

Label the lowest and highest numbers on the scale according to the “worst” and “best” ratings.

To let respondents answer a question at length using their own words, add a short answer or paragraph question.

This is a great option when you want to hear what respondents think about something specific or you are looking for ideas and suggestions.

To see what your form will look like to your recipients, preview it.

Then, return to your form to make changes.

Add at least three questions to your survey.

Then, move onto the next video to make your form look more appealing and professional.
