Google Form Settings: Need Help!

I found out today with the new Google Form, anyone with the link to my form can edit and make changes to my form. Terrible! After some digging and trying in different browsers on PC and MAC, I still can not figure out how to control the access setting the way it used to be. See the screenshots  Google Form sharing settings:

New Google Form Sharing Settings
With this new setting, the access level options disappeared, so that I was not able to stop "anyone with the link" to edit my form, post-class survey I created for the students. I certainly don't want students to edit the survey questions. Now they can if they want to.  

Old Google Form Sharing Settings
I like the old settings. However it applies to response spreadsheet not the actual entry form. If you read this post and if you know a way to change "edit" to "view", please leave a comment or contact me: Thank you!

True Reward from the Embedded Librarianship

It's been a year since I started embedding library services into academic courses with the College of Nursing and the College of Allied Health.  This email message makes my day! It tells all what embedded services mean to the students.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Healthy and happy 2013!

Embedded Librarian Challenge Three: Understanding the Context

As the course progressed, my role as an embedded librarian seemed to evolve into something unexpected. After the students and faculty came to me with some questions, I realized I had to spend time understanding the context, such as:

  • what instructor expected students to accomplish 
  • instructor's criteria to grade students' papers 
  • how to write a scholarly paper 
  • how to cite and reference in APA format
  • what students were required to read
  • what supplemental materials students had access to
  • what resources students were expected to use for their papers
This is more than an one-time-shot lecture or presentation! More than just helping students searching for and retrieving information. To embrace these challenges, I spent time doing the homework: 
  • went through course syllabus carefully
  • read and understand instructor's grading rubric for course papers
  • reviewed instructor's class presentation slides by modules
  • requested an access code from the college to review supplemental online materials (e.g. quizes and assignments) associated with the course required textbook
  • learned about chapters of the course required textbook
  • contacted the instructor when I had questions
  • got myself familiar with APA book 6th edition 
The homework really injected me with confidence providing assistance to students and the instructor. Now students' grades were distributed and my work was done, and as commented from the course instructor, done beautifully!
