## Reflection: Exit Tickets Building our Own Bar Graphs (Part I) - Section 5: Exit Ticket

In this lesson, I took notes as my students worked on their exit tickets to identify trends.  For instance, I found that many of my students double checked their work twice to make sure their tally chart was accurate. I found that all but one of my students shaded in the correct number of squares on their bar graph.  I was also able to identify that one student did not understand that the bars on the X axis need to be spaced out (see non-example).

Using my notes and the exit ticket data, I was able to identify what skills I needed to review and what skills my students had already mastered.  In this case, I took time with my student who struggled during morning work the next day to clear up misconceptions she had.

I don't use exit tickets every day, but when I use them they are a very useful tool to clearly identify student mastery of a particular concept.
