Make your exit tickets more fun for your students in less than 5 minutes! Simply print out this template, place your post-it notes on top of the spots, and put the paper back in the printer to print again!
There are many advantages to post-it note tickets.
1) They are small! This might seem like a downside at first, but the whole point of exit tickets are for them to be quick assessments of student learning. The smaller size means that they will always be quick because there is simply no room for the students to write an essay!
2) They can be stuck directly to the door or wall. This leaves behind the hassle of collecting (and losing) them and also opens up the potential for the students to read each others thoughts during a gallery walk.
3) More fun for the kids! The students love having these "real tickets" versus simple index cards or strips of paper. They can easily write their names on the ticket image and their answer underneath.
About Exit Tickets:
Exit Tickets/Slips are a quick assessment that can be used to find out about student’s learning at the end of a lesson. These tickets can be used before students leave for: recess, lunch, their next subject, or the end of the day. Exit Tickets help teachers/educators assess if students have understood the lesson/message and therefore use this information to plan for the next lesson.
How to use an Exit Ticket:
1. Pose a question on a board and/or verbally ask a question. (What do you want to find out about students’ learning?)
2. Give students a time frame to complete the Exit Ticket.
3. When students are finished, you can collect the tickets by the door or have students place their ticket in a designated spot. (The great thing about Post-It notes is they can be stuck directly to the wall/door on the way out)
4. Examine the Tickets. (You can sort the tickets into different piles (understanding, misunderstanding, unsure).
5. Next steps – You can begin the next lesson with interesting ticket responses or graph/chart common responses
When can I use an Exit Ticket?
This can be used daily or weekly. You can use them at the end of class to check for understanding.
-What did you learn from the lesson? (Summarize key points)
-Did the students understand the lesson? (Have students answer a question)
-Do you have any questions about the lesson?
Exit Tickets don’t always have to be used at the end of the lesson. It can also be used before a lesson, to see what students know about topics that will be discussed in the future. This can help bring ideas for the teachers' next day lesson.
