This tutorial covers the creation of a form, how to distribute it and how to to view and understand the results. Google forms can be used in a variety of ways and are a great assistance in the creation of and research for digital projects. An example of applicable use includes gathering demographic information from participants prior to completing studies. The forms can also be used in a survey manner.
