Compiling evidence from questionnaires and surveys can be difficult and cumbersome when completed in paper form. Google Forms allows schools to develop these surveys online and send them via email to teachers, parents and children.  Google surveys can also be embedded into the school website (which means that schools can put the survey on their website or post a link to the survey on their website).  When all of the participants have completed the survey online, the results are automatically collated and displayed as graphs (depending on the information).   The video above shows how to use Google forms, step by step.

Additional Resources: The following resources are examples of various evidence gathering tools. Schools should have a clear focus of what learning outcomes/ objectives they want to improve before they start looking for a tool with which to gather the evidence. Schools may not need to use any additional evidence gathering tools. They may have evidence all around them.
