When authoring a Google Form you can set rules that people have to follow when they fill out your form. One of the rules you can set is a minimum or maximum character length for a response. Here’s how: After adding a Short Answer or Paragraph question to a form, click the three dots in the bottom right of the question’s box. Click Response Validation, and change the first pop-up field to Length. Choose Maximum Character Count or Minimum Character Count and input a number. Then enter a message for the Custom Error Text. Now when someone fills out your form, it cannot be submitted until that response meets the rule you set. A maximum character length is helpful when you want students to be brief in their responses. A minimum character length invites students to write more.
