This past week we had the beta version of Google Form - "Locked Down" Chromebook mode activated in our district. I had my students mess around with some locked quizzes and here is what we found. Check it out.
Long story short - Chromebooks will force a Form to take up the entire screen and not allow students access to other sites or apps while in "Locked Down" mode.
#1 - You do not need to make new Forms - You simply can "Create an Assignment" and ADD a Google Form from your Drive (Or Make a New one if you choose) and select "Locked Mode on Chromebooks."
#2 - Students will be prompted before starting the Quiz that this is a "Locked Mode" quiz and they will not be able to access anything outside of the Quiz
#3 - Once in Quiz - the Form will Take up the entire Screen - ScreenShots are Disabled - You cannot Copy something BEFORE you enter the Quiz and PASTE it into the Form. There is a CLOSE QUIZ option - once the student selects this they are prompted that the teacher will be notified (via. email) that your quiz was closed.

#4 - The General Settings are "Locked Down" as well - if you want to be in locked down mode it forces you to collect email addresses, only those in your domain can take the quiz in locked down mode (from what I can see) and respondents will only be allowed 1 submission. You can simply turn off locked down mode if one of these settings is an issue.

#5 - Quiz settings are still open for you to choose how/if they get their scores back from your form.
