“Name one important thing you learned in class today.
What did you think was accomplished by the small group activity we did today?
Write/ask one question about today’s content—something that has left your
Today’s lesson had three objectives (These would have been shared at the
beginning of class and should still be available for referencing.), which of the
three do you think was most successfully reached? Explain. Or, which was not
attained? Why do you think it was not?”
1- Google Forms/ Docs
Google Forms is definitely one of simplest and easiest ways to create exit tickets. There is even a pre-made exit ticket template that you can edit and customize to your own teaching need. Alternatively, you can create a Google document with the questions and prompts you want students to work on and share it with them. Using the commenting feature, students add comments to the document and in this way you will be able to see what each student has contributed.
2- Polling tools
Poll Everywhere is a powerful web tool for creating and distributing polls. It offers five types of polls to choose from: multiple choice poll, free response poll, true or false poll, clickable images poll, and discourse poll. Your respondents can vote on your poll either through SMS or via the web using the generated link you will provide them.
Poll Everywhere also has a wonderful way of displaying the results of the poll. You can have the results displayed on a chart of bouncing bars.You can also present your polls as a seamless part of your PowerPoint or Keynote slideshow.
3- Student Response tools
Here are some of our favourite student response tools to use in class to do the same job a pen and paper exit slip can do:
Socrative is another great tool for getting feedback from students. Teachers can use the different question types provided by Socrative to poll their students and garner their feedback in a variety of formats using both smartphones or computers.
iClicker is a powerful formative assessment tool and intuitive student response system that allows for dynamic student-teacher interaction. Here is how it works: Instructors ask questions through any presentation application; students answer questions with a remote or smart device; instructors display results in real-time and record responses.
Plickers lets you poll your class for free, without the need for student devices. Just give each student a card (a “paper clicker”), and use your iPhone to scan them to do instant checks-for-understanding, exit tickets, and impromptu polls. Best of all, your data is automatically saved, student-by-student, at plickers.com.
