Creating an exam paper in Microsoft Forms

Microsoft Forms quizzes are a simple and useful way for students to complete exam questions and papers. The benefit of using Microsoft Forms quizzes for exam questions is that it’s possible to automate some of the marking and feedback. In addition to this, marking is simplified because all the answers are in the same place, saving time when reviewing answers. Finally, Microsoft Forms provides an overview of performance that is useful for evaluating a group of students’ performance and identifying areas that need revisiting.

I’ve set up an example exam paper covering natural hazards using the 2018 AQA GCSE geography paper, which you can view and copy across to your Microsoft account by clicking the links below.  The support videos below explain how the form was set up (video 1) and how Microsoft Forms can mark the paper, allocate scores, and provide personalised feedback (video 2).
