VISION + Word = Efficient Creating Forms, Grading on Word, and Putting it All on VISION
Creating Forms with Fill in Fields Online - WORD Example of Independent Reading Form – Part I, Part II, Part IIIPart IPart IIPart III Example of WebQuestWebQuest What are some electronic forms you could use for your class or for other jobs? For parents? For building use?
How To – Begin Open a new file. Customize toolbar, if necessary, to include DEVELOPER. Click on DOCUMENT TEMPLATE. Click RESTRICT EDITING.
How To – Create Your Form You will see a pane on the right that looks like this:
How To – Restrict for Student Input Check the box for “Allow only this type of editing in the document under EDITING RESTRICTIONS: Default is No changes (Read only) Select FILLING IN FORMS from the drop down menu.
How To – Choose Which Fill In Fields You Want Use this box on the tool bar to choose from text boxes, drop down boxes, check boxes, etc. to add content to the form. Play around in here. (I have only used the fill in forms with text.)
How To - Protect When you have finished your document, you will need to protect it so that students can only enter data/text in the fields you have defined. Save your document under an identifiable name Click Restrict Editing in the tool bar:
How To – Allow Student Input Click on Editing Restrictions, #2 and from the drop down menu, choose Filling in Forms: When you are finished with your document, choose #3 Yes, Start Enforcing Protection. It will prompt you for a password. Choose a password you will remember! Save to your Documents and then you can use it over and over on VISION. Students will only be able to fill in the fields you have designated. Want to make changes? EASY! Just unprotect using the password!

Upload Your Form to VISION Create a place on VISION for your document – perhaps under a unit title. Choose “Add a Resource” Choose “Link to a File or Web Site” and choose your document per VISION instructions. Need help with that? I can show you my BASIC knowledge or you can ask your TRT.
You Need a Place for Students to Turn in the Form Choose “Add an Activity” Upload a Single File Students will fill out the form, save it to their documents using a name YOU specify, then upload it to VISION.
More Uploading to VISION Student papers can be uploaded to VISION using the same thing as before except you do not have to create a form. Instruct students on the protocol for saving papers (Last Name, Assignment or Block or….) Simply, create a section on VISION labeled appropriately (Huck Finn Essays or Driving Awareness Power Points) and then choose “Add an Activity”, Upload a Single File:
Giving Feedback on Word Click the REVIEW tab: As you read the paper, add your comments using the NEW COMMENT feature. When you are finished, save to a file (Student Papers Graded) and then email the paper back to the student. Enter the grade on VISION and CLARITY.
Benefits No standing in line to make copies of a WORKSHEET or PROJECT Time and Date stamp on Student Work Quickly able to see who has and who hasn’t turned in work – Zs or 0s can quickly be entered into CLARITY for parent alerts No lugging papers No losing papers (or students telling you that you lost their paper) Conservation of resources: paper, ink, and TIME!!!! ($$$$$) No class time wasted on returning papers
