Ticket Out the Door
The Ticket Out the Door is sometimes also referred to as an “Exit Ticket” because students are asked to complete this short assessment in the final minutes of class and turn it in as they leave. The goal is to gauge where students are at the end of a lesson as a formative assessment, which can be graded or ungraded. The Ticket Out the Door can be an open-ended question or a few multiple-choice questions based on the lesson content. Once collected, the instructor should read the student responses to determine what topics may need further review in the next lesson.
Tools to Consider Using
- Pencil and paper (in person)
- Google Form (in person or online)
- Canvas assignment – text entry response or a 2-3 question quiz (in person or online)
Evaluation: Review responses after class to identify topics needing further review. Next class, can highlight insightful responses.
