You can use questions in Google Classroom to ask students for a specific response, or as a tool for collaboration. How you use them is totally up to you. The questions you create can be multiple-choice or short answer. Once a question is created, Classroom tracks student responses. Like materials and assignments, questions can be asked immediately or scheduled for a later date.
Select the class and students to which you want to post the question. You can create a question for multiple classes at once or post it to only specific students in the current class.
Type out the question you want to ask students.
Add optional instructions so it’s clear to students how to answer the question.
Set a point value for the question or make it ungraded. The default is 100 points, but you can change it to whatever point value you’d like.
By default, a question has no due date. However, you can set one for a specific day or time.
Assign a topic to group the question with other related class items. You might create a topic for tests, one for homework, and one for classwork as a means of organization. Or, you might create a topic for each unit. Topics are buckets used to categorize work. Apply an existing topic or create a new one from this menu.
Select either Short answer or Multiple choice from the menu. Short answer, if selected, has the following options:
Choose whether students can reply to each other.
Choose whether students can edit their answer after submission.
Choose whether students can see a class summary.
Add options to select from. Click Add option to add as many possible answers as you wish.
The material you attach can be:
A file saved to your computer.
An item saved to your Google Drive.
An online video.
A web link.
Deleting a question removes it, along with any associated grades or comments, from Classroom. However, any files or attachments created in Google Drive will still remain. You’ll need to manually delete those in Drive if you don’t want to retain copies.
Be aware that deleting a question is permanent. There is no way to undo the deletion.
