Reflection: Exit Tickets Rounding to Check Accuracy - Section 3: Closing


Exit tickets, whether they are written on slips of paper, or on a white board, are excellent ways of assessing the success of your day's lesson.

 I try to make sure that what I ask the students to do on an exit ticket is directly linked to that particular day's activity.  In this way, I am able to determine if my lesson was helpful, and what students still need help. It also guides me in my next steps for understanding.  

This type of review is easy, quick, and often fun for the children.  If you try it, make sure to only assess one or two areas.  If it gets longer than that, the children perceive it as a test or an assignment.
