Product Description
By popular request! My "Using Entrance Slips to Guide Instruction" has rapidly become a best seller, and I have been asked to create a similar resource for EXIT slips! Here it is! It has all the same formative assessment slips as the original resource except these are all labeled as "exit slips" rather than "entrance slips"! As in the original resource, each exit slip comes two to a page and in a low-ink, easy to copy format--and includes a suggestions for use for EACH exit slip!

For those of you new to formative assessment . . . these exit slips are designed to help you "take the temperature" of your class in terms of student learning and attitudes to help you as you plan your instruction. It does no one any good to find out at the end of a unit that your students haven't learned all the material. That's why I started using quick learning checks such as these--I wanted to see where my class stood at each point along their learning journey!

They can be used to check understanding on academic content OR to get a read on student attitudes and comfort levels and I use them in a couple of ways:

...to see if there are any students with major misconceptions
...to see if the entire class is missing understanding and I need to reteach
...to sort my students into groups for instruction

Again, these exit slips come two per page and are low-ink and ready to copy.

Each exit slips comes with a “suggestion” page where the slip
is highlighted with a blue box with ideas for how that slip might be
used--and you get more than 20 different formative assessments to use in any subject!

I have also divided the exit slips into two categories—those used to measure academic performance AND those used for students to “self-assess”—whether it be their own understanding, their effort, or their participation. I really believe it is essential for students to take an active role in their learning—and that they need to be reflective and take ownership of their “job” in the classroom!

Also included is a teacher recording sheet to help you with grouping students and more! Download the preview to get a more clear picture of all that you get. Want to check out the entrance slip resource as well?
