Using Exit Tickets Effectively

Exit slips are a new trend in education and they are praised for being a great formative assessment before the students leave the room at the end of a class. Personally, I love exit slips. Not only does it help me to see where my students are, but it drives my instruction for the following day. It tells me if they're ready to move on or if they need more instruction and practice with that topic. The resources below can help you decide how you might use them in your classroom.

    So you are onboard with the idea of giving exit slips but you aren't sure if you're ready for the influx of paperwork you need to grade each day? There's a way around that. Watch this video to see how you can use Google Forms to create exit slips that students submit electronically. You can even use Floobaroo (google add-on) or conditional formatting to aid in grading.

    Meghann Urewicz says:
    Exit slips can serve many different purposes, from assessment to reflection. Depending on your content and grade level, you might have to find the type that works best for you. As a math teacher, my exit slips involve a couple of short problems from the concept we learned that day. But if you're an English teacher, your exit slips might involve a reflection on the discussion that took place in class.
