This next part starts with your form which is still in the 'edit' mode. You will want to click 'Email this form'.
Once you click on "Email this form", you will get a screen like this. You want to email to yourself, and any other person who will be using the form.
This is where you get your iPad out, and open your email on the iPad. You should get an email that looks like this. Touch the link to open the form.
When you have opened the link, it should be your form that you created. You are still on your iPad. You will want to touch the icon in the upper left that looks like a box with an arrow curving out of it.
The drop down menu appears when you touch the box with the arrow as shown below.
You should see a drop down menu as shown above. Touch 'add to home screen'. The icon will then appear in a place on your home screen of your iPad. You can move it to a different place, put it into a folder, or put all of your forms in one folder or one screen. See if you can find 'Harold's IEP' icon in the screen shot below. When you touch it on the real iPad, the form will come up. Fill out the form and submit---Google will collate Harold's data when this form is used.

Happy form-making! The best way to learn this is to practice with some of your IEPs or treatment plans!
Special note on confidentiality: If students also use your iPad, you can keep names confidential by not using last names, or by using a code for the client names---e.g. use the first two letters of the first name and the first two letters of the last names. Mary Smith would become MaSm.
You should also keep your password enabled with the Google form.
