Exit tickets (or exit slips!) are a great way to assess what students have learned during the day’s lesson. These versions of exit tickets work with any content and are designed with the middle schooler in mind. Use them starting at the beginning of the year to instill routine and increase retention.

I have used these in both my science and ELA classes. There are 30 different types of tickets, enough to give a good variety while still allowing for a routine. This packet places four tickets per page, cutting down on copies and paper used. ***Recently added, thanks to a buyer suggestion- we now also include 2 exit tickets per page for students who need more room to write.

Exit tickets are designed to be quick checks, to take no more than 3 – 5 minutes to gauge the students’ levels of understanding. (Note: the stars on each ticket are for students to assess their level of understanding on a scale of 1 – 5.) They can be quickly read by the teacher and do not necessarily have to be graded. The completed exit tickets can be used at the beginning of the next class to clarify or review what was done the previous day. They can determine what needs to be re-taught. They can also be used to place students into groups based on their levels of understanding. Here is a list of the 30 types of exit tickets included:

1. Illustrate an idea
