Exit Ticket provides instant feedback for you to determine whether your class mastered your daily objective. It is recommended that just about every lesson concludes with an Exit Ticket. They should be handed out at the end of class, and include 3 or 4 questions in various formats that assess one or more parts of the objective. Once each student has answered all the questions the ticket is collected before or as they exit. The next day, having analyzed the data, give the students an opportunity to identify their mistakes, reteach, and give more opportunities to correct them as needed.
- Before generating the Exit Ticket, be sure to have a clear and measurable learning standard.
- Determine what questions you will ask your students. Questions should be aligned with the learning standard.
- Inform your class about the purpose of an Exit Ticket, what will be done with them, and that they are not graded "tests".
- Give students 5-10 minutes at the end of class to complete their Exit Ticket.
- Have students turn in their Exit Ticket before class ends or on the way out of class.
- Review student responses from the tickets and allow the data to guide/drive future instruction and student intervention.
