Google classroom offers some great options for assessment within the platform itself. You can create a question (short answer or multiple choice) to use as part of a lesson, create an assignment (graded or not) where students can post their work, or create a quiz using Google Forms (multiple choice, short answer, drop down, and a linear scale). The addition of Pear Deck can really jazz up your assessments!

Ask a Variety of Questions
- Sequence questions - use the "checkbox grid" question type to ask students to sequence or arrange items in a list.
- Matching questions - use the multiple choice grid question type to create a matching question (great for vocabulary quizzes!)
- Reading Passage - use the title/text element to add a short reading passage.
- Video question - have students watch a video and then answer questions about it (great for math and world language.
- Image question - images can be used as the question stem or question choices (great for science, math, social studies, and elementary students)
- Free response / short answer - If a student can answer all of the multiple choice questions correctly, but can't articulate 2-3 sentences on the same topic...something is wrong.
