Working with some middle school students to create an app that tracks step of a dog through their collar as well as monitor their food and water dish levels with automatic feeding. We could like that data collected in the app as well.

We are looking for suggestions for best ways to develop an app as well as using Arduino(possibly) to pull this off. Thoughts?

I just ran into a major issue with my Google Form. A loophole that students will figure out eventually. They have the option to go back while they are completing the form. If the result of each question will send them to a different page some of them will realize they can go back and keep choosing answers until they get to the page that doesn't show review questions. This would allow them to keep trying each question until "they get the right page." I have been searching for a way to disable the back button during the quiz taking process but I can't find anything. Anyone know of any ways to prevent this from happening?

I've been asking for option to disable the back button for years and nothing seems to be happening. I was hoping in the new forms but nope. I've seen a few others over time talking about it but nothing... It really ruins quite a few things you can do with the "go to page based on answer" feature.

I have a teacher that has created a Google Form to be used as a rubric for grading. She wants to be able to then have the results she enters to be sent out to each student individually. What would be the simplest method to go about doing this?

I love this issue.
1. To track steps: using accelerator sensor with ESP12, ESP12 will update steps information to Local Server (through wifi)
2. Monitor food/water with automatic feeding: using level sensor (IR type -> we can make it) to detect level of food/water -> also using another ESP12 to do this job and send information to Local Server too.

Well let's be clear here, Google Forms is a form service and not a quiz service, even though people can and do use it for this purpose.
It's not going to be a smart Star Trek console quizzing Spock!

Besides, might your students be learning as they're trying to circumvent the Form flow?
