Microsoft Forms is a great tool to create fast and re-usable forms or Quizzes.

Description from : https://support.office.com/en-us/forms

« With Microsoft Forms, you can create surveys, quizzes, and polls, and easily see results as they come in. When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading. »

It is important to understand that when a user creates a new form by accessing the form service from Office.com or from the App Launcher, it will create a personnal form.

Important : All personal forms will be deleted when the user account is deleted.
