How to Make a Pie Chart in Google Forms: A Step-By-Step Guide
Pie charts are a visual representation that works well with categorical data, making them suitable for questions where respondents choose from predefined options, such as multiple choice and dropdown question types. For other question types, such as short answer or paragraph, a pie chart may not be the most appropriate visualization since these types usually involve textual or numerical responses rather than categorical choices. Below is a walkthrough on how to generate pie charts in two ways.
Click Responses on the top menu. Locate your multiple choice and dropdown questions. Google Forms automatically shows a collective Summary of the answers under these question types as a pie chart.
