Exit Ticket Templates
Following you will find a free collection of exit ticket templates (some editable via Google Slides) that save teachers time in assessing students’ understanding of new information.
1. Glow and Grow
Students record one math strength – an area or skill in which they “glowed”.
Afterward, they write one “needs improvement” statement – an area in which they still need to “grow”.
Triangle-Square-Circle prompts learners to synthesize information, ask questions, and summarize essential points with the help of visual cues.
- The triangle means that students must provide three key points that they “took away” from the lesson.
- The square represents what learners have “squared away”, or understood, about the topic.
- The circle represents one or two lingering questions students still have about the lesson or subject.
If you’re seeking a worksheet that serves as an exit ticket, this one is for you.
3-2-1 templates are divided into three parts:
- Learners first give 3 responses to a prompt/question.
- They then provide 2 answers to a prompt/question.
