  1. It would be great to have a progress bar

    It would be really nice to have a built in progress bar so people could see how much of a survey they have left

    • Edit Response

      Allow responders to edit responses after submission. For example, if a student is taking a quiz and is unable to finish before the end of class, the student can submit the quiz to save their answers and then continue the quiz during the next class period.

      • Randomly chose a number of questions for a quiz from a pool of questions

        I would like to create a pool of questions and Microsoft Forms should randomly chose a number of questions from this pool for a quiz.
        So if I need a quick test for my students I could just tell Microsoft Forms to take 10 questions from a certain pool randomly.

        • Print MS Forms with Answer Choices Showing

          Teachers need to be able to Print the Form with Answer choices showing so that students without internet can take the quiz. Sometimes students forget their laptops or do not have access to the internet and need to take a quiz. This would allow them to have a paper copy as well as the online version.

            Give form creators the option to display questions one per page to help students focus and to help save student progress on a longer assessment.

            • Enable attaching the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms.

              *English follows Japanese

              ■Title(件名): Microsoft Forms の回答にファイルを添付する機能について

              Enable attaching the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms.
              ***************
              ■Description(内容):
              Microsoft Forms のフォームの回答欄に、現在はファイルを添付する機能が実装されていない。
              ファイルを添付する機能が実装されれば、フォームでお客様から情報をお寄せいただく際にとても便利になるので、是非機能として実装してほしい。​

              Currently, we are concerned that the users cannot attach the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms by now. If it becomes possible, we feel its more convenient when collecting information from the customers. It will be grateful if we could apply the "Attachment" feature through Microsoft Forms.

              Thank you for your consideration.

              • Allow Form to be added as web part

                I am not sure if it possible currently or not. Is it possible to add Forms created as web part on SharePoint pages? If we can add the quiz created as web part on SharePoint pages, it would really be helpful.

                  Thanks for your suggestion!

                  SharePoint page support embed content. Currently you can copy the embed code of a form (click “Share” button, select “Embed” in “send and collect responses” section ) and past the code to SharePoint. The form will show as a web part on Sharepoint page.
                  We will continue thinking about improving the experience.

                • Add a timer

                  I know you can set for how long a form is available but having a timer on the test or even a timer per questions can make forms better.

                      • Score in multiple answers

                        In case of multiple answers, point should be given to answers, instead of to questions, otherwise partial corrected answers will not be considered.
                        There should be the possibility to give a negative score to incorrect answers.

                        • all users to import questions from other test banks.

                          I have tests created in Word, ExamView, Blackboard, and it would be great if I could import from some other format so that I don't have to rewrite my questions. I am just now looking into adopting forms and Classroom for my class, and this would make the decision to switch to Microsoft much easier. Thanks!

                          • allow partial credit for answers on MS quiz

                            Let's say it's a multiple answer question, and there are only two correct answers. But the respondent checks three answers (two of their choices are the correct answers). They should receive partial credit for this, since they did in fact get the answers correct. So if the question was worth 2 points, but they marked three choices, MS forms scores it as a 0/2. Why?

                              • Limit number of choices in multiple choice

                                In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions were we can set only one choice or many choices. I would like to see an option were we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4 out of the available options. Instead of One or all.

                                    • Include a time-management mechanism

                                      For teachers it could be handy to be able to set time for every question. Imagine you start the "test" and you see the first question for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes the next question or set of questions appear. The former question could either stay, so that students can catch up, or disappear, if timing is important. But after the time for the whole form is over the form is automatically being sent. This could be used for educational games.

                                      • Include a Word/Character Count restriction in the Long Answer text area

                                        Either through a character count or a word count, include a restriction in the Long Answer Question answer to set a minimum or maximum word count that would return an error message if the form submission went over/under the restriction number. This is included in another form software that you are competing against. Overall, I like this software.

                                        • Add a column that shows the total points available, or percent correct when exporting a quiz to Excel.

                                          We are trying to migrate from another platform to Microsoft Forms, but the Quiz results, when exported to Excel, do not indicate the total number of points available for a quiz. They sum the total points scored, but without knowing the number of points that could be scored outside of Excel, there's no way to calculate an actual score (percentage correct) from the Excel export. The percentage is shown in the web view of the quiz results, so it should be pretty easy to include that as part of the export.

                                          Thanks!
