Digital Exit Tickets are Easy With This Great New Tool

Share this post:  
Exit tickets are a well-known tool for gauging comprehension, or as a strategy for formative
assessment. Traditionally done at the end of class, on a piece of paper, teachers gather one
or two answers from students to see who grasped a concept, and to flag any difficulties
students may be having. 

With an increase in remote learning and concerns around spreading illness by passing
around pieces of paper, strategies like paper exit tickets are no longer a viable option. So
how can we adapt this practice for the new education landscape? Digital exit tickets provide
an answer.

Digital exit ticket tools like Loop make it easy to share questions with students and collect
responses. Some handy features include: 
  • Save your favourite questions to re-use later
  • Make use of different response types - text answers, number scales, emoji reactions
  • or multiple choice
  • Schedule questions in advance to reduce your workload
  • Make use of dashboards - review all your students' responses in one spot without
  • having to sort through bits of paper

Wellbeing and the learning environment

Exit tickets don’t just need to be about comprehension. Now more than ever, a safe space to
ask students how they are feeling in their learning environment, or to pulse check wellbeing
is equally as important. 

When you ask questions about wellbeing, remember that each response is important to the
student, and students are sharing how they are feeling in that moment. Take the time to
respond, but resist the urge to problem solve (at least in the short term). Generating
understanding over time will help you understand what action to take.
