How Do I Share the Summary of Results from Google Forms with Others?

One of the benefits of using Google Forms is the fact that it automatically creates a summary of the data in an easy to read format.  Pie charts, bar graphs, and percentages that provide an overview of the information.  This works great if you are a collaborator or own of the original form.  


What happens if you want to share the summary of results, but don’t want to provide other people with editing privileges to your original form?

Don’t worry!  There is a way.

Scenario 1:  
The class takes a survey.  You then decide that it would be great if the students were able to view and analyze the results.  Is this possible?  Yes!


Go to the the summary of results page.  (From the Form this is under the Responses Tab, from Sheets this is under the Form Tab)


Once you are on the Summary of Results page, select Publish Analytics at the top of the page.   This action will allow the people who responded to the form to be able to view the results.   A window will pop up to verify that this is what you want to occur.  Publish and show a link to the results of this form? All respondents will be able to see the summary.”   You can now share that link on a class website or in Google Classroom for students to access.


Scenario 2:  
A common assessment was given to one grade level using a Google Form.  Now it is time to view the data and determine what the results show.   Is it possible to share this summary with people who do not have access to the form or did not take the assessment?  Yes!


Go to the the summary of results page.  (From the Form this is under the Responses Tab, from Sheets this is under the Form Tab)

Once you are on the Summary of Results page, Right click, select Print, and then select Change under destination.  The destination should read Save as PDF.  Once it does, select Save.  You know have a PDF copy of the results that can be shared.

  1. What would be nice is if there was a url to the summary of responses output. Separate from any sharing options of the responses or form. NOT looking to provide the output to the survey takers but want to provide the output dynamically as additional survey responses come in.
