Up my Google Docs skills, please?

I'm teaching a basic accounting class in a local university this coming semester and would like to integrate more technology into the class so as to foster student learning. I'm trying out a (somewhat) flipped approach to teaching this semester, and am looking to several Google services in doing so. A lot of this is going to be experimental, as this is my first time to do this.
So, on a more general level, I'd appreciate any tips/secrets/best practices you can share with me about using Google Forms, Google Spreadsheets, or Google Sites (whether you think it's relevant to a classroom setting or not). Under the fold, two more (specific) questions about Forms and Spreadsheets.

1. I'm planning to use Google Forms for giving students online quizzes. One concern is that I want students to take the quiz by X day of the week, so I want to be able to either
A) have Google tell me when the response came in (as opposed to having the student fill in a question that goes something like "What's the date today/time now?"), or
B) have Google automatically stop accepting responses by X time of a certain day. Is there any way to do this without having to learn programming? (I don't mind learning programming, but time constraints and all...)
2. I want the students to be able to access their grades on any given time, but I don't want them to see their classmates' grades. Is there any way to limit access of each user on a Google Spreadsheet without having to create 30+ individual pages/spreadsheets?
