We recently saw a fantastic use of Google Forms for highlighting student's barriers to learning, and informing decisions about future intervention provision.
A Google Form was made, with each child's name added instead of a question asked. The answers were added as check boxes, with each check box being a specific barrier to learning.
Each teacher was sent the form, and completed it by ticking the boxes that they thought were a barrier to learning for each student.
Once everyone had completed the form, there was a clear and precise visual representation of the results, and it could clearly be seen the dominant barriers to learning for each child.
These results could then be used in lots of ways for planning and recording intervention needs. In this case, it was for pupil premium students, but it could be applied in lots of areas.
The great thing is, there is a ready made form that can be adapted and used again.
Simple and effective.
