Exit tickets are a great way to assess what students have learned during the lesson that you have just taught. The exit tickets included in this pack are for Equations and Expressions. Having taught these standards, I chose to break the individual cards into each skill that I taught within each standard. I suggest using them at the beginning of the year to instill a routine and increase retention of information. I have found that using exit tickets helps me to quickly see who ‘gets it’ and who doesn’t. I often use my exit tickets to form small groups in order to re-teach to the students who need it and enrich the students who don’t.
Exit tickets are designed to be quick checks and should take no more than 3-5 minutes. Within this time, you should be able to quickly gauge each student’s level of understanding. (Note: The stars at the bottom of each ticket are for students to assess their own level of understanding on a scale of 1-5.) Then, you can quickly read how the students are doing. You can choose to either grade the cards or simply go by how the students rated themselves. Even though exit tickets are typically given at the end of class, you may choose to have students fill them out at the beginning of class the next day to review what was taught the previous day.
Use at the beginning or end or class.
Can be graded or checked for student understanding.
Used to build retention of information.
Used to form small groups and determine future instruction.
This packet places two exit tickets per page. This cuts down on the number of copies and paper being used. I hope to add the digital/Google version of this soon.
