Put simply, a form is a nice looking interface that users can use to provide you with data. Forms can be used for planning events, sending out surveys, giving students a quiz, or collecting any other type of information you might need. This online training series on Google™ Docs - Spreadsheets shows how you can use this software to ask a variety of questions, including those in which your user responds with a simple text answer or a more involved paragraph response. You can ask multiple choice questions, list questions, scale questions, and more. When sharing your forms with others, you can set them up to appear in an impressive theme with minimal effort.
