Reflection: Continuous Assessment Solving and Proving Compound Inequalities - Section 5: Exit Ticket: Idea Organizer on Solving and Proving Compound Inequalities


There are so many ways to check for student understanding. I like to try and utilize Classwork as a way to gauge student understanding in an environment with teacher and peer support.

Writing is a tool that I use all the time to gauge student understanding. I often assign writing assignments as exit tickets and use them to assess student understanding of the days concepts. The three writing examples in this reflection demonstrate various levels of student understanding:

Compound Inequalities 1

Compound Inequalities 2

Compound Inequalities 3

In these three examples, I can get a good idea of individual student progress in a given unit and across a school year. I also utilize exit tickets and assessments to assess understanding at the class level. I use the class wide data to adjust my own teaching practice and instruction.
