How Students Properly Answer a Question in Google Classroom


The Google Classroom Ask Question feature is a very versatile tool. It can be used to check for understanding and engagement on an asynchronous lesson video. It also can be used to conduct a threaded academic conversation similar to what college students do on Blackboard and Canvas.

One common issue with the Ask Question feature is that kids often forget where to type their answers. Many times, students will type their answers in the Class Comments section below the question.

The screenshots below show students where to click and type when answering a Question in Google Classroom. 

Step 1: Go to Classwork, click on the Question and then click View question

Step 2: Type answer where it says "Your answer" in top right corner. Do not type answer where it says Class comments. 

Step 3: When done typing answer, click Turn in.

Step 4: If participating in a threaded academic discussion, click See classmate answers.

Step 5: You will be able to see all classmates' answers. Below each answer is a Reply button. Click it to reply to classmates' answers.
