Using exit tickets to check comprehension

Exit Tickets can be used to gauge whether or not students have processed new concepts. It is a quick way to have them reflect on information learned or to express their thoughts about new information.  Students need to respond to a prompt and it is an easy way to incorporate writing into many different content areas.  Here are a few examples of exit tickets that can be used:


At the end of class, have students complete exit tickets to:

  • have students summarize key points from the lesson
  • make sure that students can solve a problem
  • highlight an essential question from the day’s activities
  • answer a significant question based on the lesson
  • allow students to ask questions they still have about the lesson

They can be as structured or un-structured as you need them to be.
