Google Forms allows you to toggle on and off accepting responses. However, sometimes you do not want to turn off responses but rather restrict who is filling out the Form.

Create a Short Answer Question

Add a short answer question to your Google Form asking for the password. Note: The “answer key” does NOT set the password. The question should be worth zero points. You MUST make this question REQUIRED.

3 Dots

Use the 3 dots in the bottom right of the question to choose “Response Validation.”

Choose Text Validation

The default validation is “Number.” Click on the arrow to change from “Number” to “Text.” In the text spot, enter the password you want to set for the test. Google Forms automatically save so you can simply change the word you have in the validation and the next person to open the Form and try to get past the first question will need your new password.

If students have started the Google Form and have entered the password and progressed past the password question you CAN change the password even if the students are not done with the Form.

Create a Section

In order for the password to prevent students from filling out the Google Form you need to have “What is your password” be the ONLY question in the section. If they get the password correct they will be permitted to fill in other questions such as “What is your name.” But those need to be in a separate section.

The last icon in the floating toolbar is to “Create a section.” This essentially creates pages in your Google Form. Tip to create a section for demographic questions such as “What is your name” and a separate section for the question.
