How to Make a Fill in the Blank in Google Forms
Here’s how to create a fill in the blank in your Google Forms to provide an interactive way of gathering specific responses from respondents:
1. Add a New Question to Your Form
Click the "+" button on the left side panel. This action will create a space for a new question on your form.
2. Choose 'Short Answer' as the Question Type
Once the space for the question appears, locate the dropdown menu labeled "Multiple choice".
Click on it and select "Short Answer". This question type is ideal for fill-in-the-blank responses.
3. Write the Fill-in-the-Blank Question Text
In the question text box, write your question. Leave a space or underscore (_) where the respondent is supposed to provide their answer. For instance, "The capital of France is ____."
4. Set the Question as Required
Below the question text box, find the "Required" toggle switch and turn it on. By doing this, you ensure that respondents must fill in the answer before they can submit the form.
5. Repeat Steps to Add More Fill-in-the-Blank Questions
To add more fill-in-the-blank questions, repeat the previous steps. Ensure that each question is crafted clearly and that the "Required" option is turned on for each.
6. Preview the Form to Ensure Correctness
Click on the "eye" icon located at the top of the page. This action allows you to see a preview of your form as respondents would see it.
Review to ensure that all questions appear correctly.
7. Share the Form with Respondents
After ensuring your form is correct, click the "Send" button located at the top right of the page.
8. View Collected Responses in the 'Responses' Tab
Once respondents start submitting their answers, you can view the collected data. Click on the "Responses" tab located at the top of your form to see the answers that have been submitted.
