Part of my job is to screen hearing. As a speech pathologist, we don't need to chart audiograms, or do anything detailed, but we do need to record a 'pass' or 'fail' in 6 different frequencies. In the past, I've scratched the results onto a piece of scrap paper, then more meticulously recorded the results on a spreadsheet. At first, it was a paper spreadsheet, last year it was a Google form, and now this year, I've tossed the pencil and paper, and just record the results into a Google form on my iPad, which sends it into a tidy Google spreadsheet which I can share electronically with my program leader.
If you do not know how to create a Google form, go here
. This link tells you step by step how to create a form.Then if you want to put this form onto your iPad screen, go here
. It's actually very easy to create a form, and then you can just look at my hearing screening form below, and use that as a model.

Once you have a form, all of the data you collect goes into a Google Spreadsheet. Here is a screenshot of my spreadsheet (I've changed the names) so you can see what this can look like (depending on your form).
This spreadsheet can be ultimately downloaded as a pdf or as an Excel document. No pencils needed though! I'm always looking for ways to reduce my paper mountain!
