Use the Confirmation Text in Google Forms
What do students do AFTER they complete the Google Form? Take advantage of the confirmation text to direct students what to do next!
I strongly suggest you collect emails for all Forms. (Tip: click on the 3 dots in the upper right and choose “Preferences.” There you can default all future Forms to automatically collect email addresses.) This has nothing to do with the confirmation text, however, it will be the first thing you see when you click on the settings cog.
The default Confirmation message is “Your response has been recorded.” But what does that mean? What should students do next? Consider leaving students a note in the Confirmation message to direct their next steps.
If you include the http:// when pasting a link in the Confirmation message, the link will be a live link. Do you want students to go to a simulation website? Fill out a Padlet? Paste the link in the Confirmation message.
Fill out the Google Form below to see the confirmation message.
Link to a Google Classroom Assignment
I suggest using Private Comments in Google Classroom to ask an open ended question. This allows for faster and more high quality feedback. On the assignment in Google Classroom click on the 3 dots and choose “Copy link.”
In the Confirmation message of the Google Form ask students to go back to Google Classroom and locate the assignment that they will answer the open response question for the assessment. Paste the link directly to that assignment in the confirmation message.
