At the last post about creating online quizzes with Google Docs, I showed you the steps to create online quizzes. In this post, I will guide you to share the quizzes you created and then invite others to take quizzes.
As soon as you’re done and your quiz form has been saved, you can go ahead and close this window. Your form will feed into a spreadsheet in Google Docs. The spreadsheet is private by default, even though your form is public.
If you wish, you can share the quiz spreadsheet with others or publish it, but the choice is yours. You can also go in and manually add data to your spreadsheet without having to rely on the form or use the data to make charts. About sharing quiz spreadsheet online to let other take the quiz, there are 2 ways: embed the quizzes to blogs or websites and Email others the quizzes.
Embed the quizzes to your blogs or website
You can embed the quizzes on your blogs or Web site and let people take the quiz in that way.
