I love using exit tickets in the classroom. This year, however, the universe threw a curve-ball that none of us could have expected!
If you are like me, you’ve had to make some tweaks and changes to how you run your classroom. There is a silver lining. Teachers are resilient and we are coming up with new and improved ways to continue making a difference with our students!
Digital exit tickets are one strategy that I have found to be a huge game changer in my classroom.
We are running a hybrid model and I am happy to tell you that both my distance learning kids and in-person students are rocking the exit tickets.
I love to use exit tickets for formative assessment. They help me gauge where students are in their learning and what they still need to be successful.
They also give students the opportunity to ask questions without fear of embarrassment.
I love that I can have a record of student responses in my drive. No more stacks of papers piling up and collecting dust on my desk.
As a science teacher, I am all about being eco-friendly.
But what I love most of all is that with COVID, there is no touching student papers involved!!
My absolute favorite part of using the digital exit ticket is that I get immediate feedback from the students. I can glance at the spreadsheet and know in a minute where my students are and what they need.
Checking for understanding is a breeze! It allows you to quickly adjust your plans if needed, and place students in small groups according to their needs!
Easy to Analyze Data
Digital exit tickets make it easy to look at your class and determine who “gets it” or needs more help.
You don’t have to be a spreadsheet guru to understand a few sorting tricks! 😉
If you use conditional formatting in your sheet, it makes it ridiculously easy to take a temperature reading of your classroom.
Easy to Share
If you use Google Classroom, digital exit tickets are super easy to share! Simply go to your classwork tab, create an assignment and upload it from Google Drive. Google does the rest!
I have a tutorial to help you in my Free Resource Library.
You even have the option to schedule your digital exit tickets so that students only receive them on specific days.
Our lives are busy and digital exit tickets are just the thing to save you valuable time!
The hardest part is deciding which exit slip to use!
