Exit tickets
Does anyone use exit tickets in their middle school classroom? I teach 5 sections of science (three 7th grade and two 8th grade classes) and am thinking of implementing this, but I'm not sure how effective it is.

I have found that exit tickets can be beneficial. I use different types, 3..2..1., sentence starter..., answer a question from the lesson...etc. After the students complete and it is their pass out of class. I review the answers and easily set up my small groups for the next day by putting each exit slip in a stack based on their grasp of the content for the day. So use them!!! Try it for yourself!

I often use student responses on the exit slip as a part of the lesson on the next day. The exit slip responses drive the focus of the daily warm-up and the review for the next day. This gives me an opportunity to correct misconceptions and solidify other concepts. Exit slips provide a quick formative assessment that can drive instruction.

I think that exit tickets are a good strategy to use. This allows teachers to get immediate response to a question, and see how well the information was understood.

You can use exit tickets from Kindergarten through high school. Exit tickets can be done on a sticky note, a thumbs up or down, verbally, however you see fit. You can also use them for formative assessments!

I constantly use exit tickets. Exit tickets are also a wonderful way to make sure there is bell to bell instruction. Sometimes there are a few minutes left at the end of class, and exit tickets extend that learning time until the bell rings. I also use some of the exit tickets as daily grades for my middle school students. They are wonderful!

I can not say enough good about them. Try your best to simplify your lesson into one brief question and ask away, the data is great and it does not feel like a tedious thing for the teacher.

I use exit tickets to determine if the students have grasped the concepts being taught on that particular day. I have students do actual exit slips that they place in the pockets that I have glued to the inside of my door. Sometimes I generate the questions, but I often let the students tell me what they took away from the activity or lesson. Another exit strategy that I use is the five finger handshake. As the students are leaving the room, they shake the teachers hand using all five fingers. If there is any less than five fingers, this is an indicator of a student who needs clarification on something they did not understand.

I use exit tickets at least once a day. I teach in a self-contained In-D class. I find them to be very informative.

I agree with this case study. I will utilize this information once I become a teacher.
I enjoyed reading this idea.

As an intern, I have observed teachers using exit tickets, and I believe they are useful. Exit tickets allow you to monitor how well the students understand the content covered in class. They can be used for data purposes and direct your instruction the following day. Exit tickets are easy to grade/review and can be given back to the students to study before a test.
