As language teachers, we often do not know what students retain from our lessons. We can informally assess based on in-class participation, but we can’t effectively do so for every student. Formal assessments, such as unit exams, do measure understanding for all students, but assessing only on test day does not allow teachers to tailor their daily content to student needs. A practical solution to this assessment problem is providing students with short ‘exit tickets’ at the end of class. These tickets act as a low-stress, simple method for assessment on the day’s lesson. They provide a consistent end-of-class routine and help teachers adjust upcoming lessons to address learning gaps. We aim to discuss various exit ticket strategies and methods to incorporate them into your classroom.
