Two-Types of DBs

There are two types of Digital Breakouts that I create: Data Validation and Quiz.

Data validation

Data valuation DBs contain only one Google From w/ four or more locks.

To unlock the locks you must type in the correct answer. If the answer you entered is incorrect it will give you an error message such as “Try Again” or “Still Locked”. This is by far the least complicated version of digital locks.

However, last school year, I had a very tech-savvy young man hack my Google Form and found the answers within five minutes. To say the least, I was not a happy camper…


The other type of DB that I create is meant to combat the “hacking” and provide additional scaffolding. Instead of having one Google Form w/ four locks, I now create four different Google Forms, each containing one lock. To unlock the lock you must type in the answer then click submit. Once you submit, you have the option to select “VIEW ACCURACY”.

Clicking “VIEW ACCURACY” navigates to a page to see if the answer is correct or not. A correct answer receives a green check and an incorrect answer receives a red ‘x’.

As I mentioned before, I LOVE creating DBs! I hope that you take some time to peruse my CoffeyITRT Digital Breakout site and explore all the DBs I have created so far.
