Have you checked out the Forms tutorial found at

The checkbox example there evidently also uses a VALUE={text_string}
If the checkbox comes back checked VALUE is set to that string. If
the box isn't checked the VALUE field comes back NULL. At least
that is how I read the tutorial. I haven't tried this myself yet.
