Reflection: Exit Tickets The Lightbulb Just Went On! - Section 3: I Learned


This simple quick write assessment showed me that they could use the vocabulary that I didn't define for them, but that they learned through discussion, looking it up on their iPad by Googling it, or through prior knowledge. Most students could use conductor and flow really well. The sample I provided really showed that this student was thinking about those negative and positive ions. So, the exit ticket is a great way to see how individual students differed in their understanding. Everyone mastered the understanding that the circuit had to be closed in order for the transfer of energy to occur. In that, they satisfied the standard as stated. Anything else was above and beyond expectations, which is very, very good!
