Choice Eliminator

Hello Eminence!

Have you ever wanted to make a form/survey where different options would disappear after they were selected?

One of my new favorite add-ons for Google Forms is called "Choice Eliminator", and it will allow you to do just that.  Here's how it works:

First, you'll need to add it on to your school Google Account.  Make sure you're logged into Chrome, and then click here to add it.

Once you have the "Add-on" installed, go ahead and create your form.  Note: it works with multiple choice style questions.

Once your form is created, you then "Start" Choice Eliminator from the Add-on menu:

A little window will then appear on the right side of your screen.  All you do now is click the question in your form that has choices you want to "eliminate" after they are selected.

Now every time that form is filled out, that "choice" will disappear.  Watch the magic!

There's even an option now where you can select how many times a choice is selected before it vanishes.

Boom.  Awesomesauce.

Now, as far as class applications...

Think: you can now share a conference sign-up form (like my example) with parents and not have to worry about every one signing up for the exact same time.  If you're having a class party and don't want everyone to sign up to bring a dozen doughnuts, have them sign up using this instead.

Note: If you're using this for conference sign ups, I would still send home a paper copy with OTHER times listed on it for those without Internet access.

Side question... am I the only one who still thinks of THIS when they hear the word "Eliminator"?
