What is an exit ticket?
Exit tickets are a formative assessment tool used to check student understanding. It's an easy way to ensure students understand the lesson.
They can come in many different formats and types, but the primary purpose of an exit ticket is to provide an assessment of student understanding at the end of a lesson, lesson, or day. Also known as a "ticket to leave" or "exit card," students must hand in their exit ticket before leaving the room, either after a lesson or at the end of the day. Reinforcing topics immediately after class helps students retain information better!
Some of the templates we provide are meant for quick answers, while others are meant for personal reflection. Both provide valuable feedback for the educator.
Benefits of using exit tickets
Exit tickets can indicate student progress or understanding of a concept and should inform your next steps for the lesson. Review them before the next class and monitor student progress to find misunderstandings, student understanding or gaps in your class!

Outbound ticket ideas
There is no method how to create an exit ticket. Exit tickets are useful for all grade levels and all subjects, so they vary widely in themes and difficulties. An exit note can be as simple as circling an image on a piece of paper, or it can even be a thoughtful reflection of your entire day.
Typically, exit cards are not formally graded as they are intended as a formative review to inform the teacher. However, you can take the opportunity to have an exit ticket-style worksheet for students to fill out before leaving the classroom.
Teachers can also create general printable classroom notes to have on hand for each class of the day. A prompt like "I noticed / I was wondering..." or a blank graphical organizer for exits can be used in many situations.
Brevity is important.
Exit tickets are not tasks and must be completed in less than five minutes. Depending on the subject, age group, and learning goal, you may want to have an open-ended answer area, or just have students circle words or pictures.
For the most part, exit tickets don't require long written paragraphs or difficult questions. They should be quick check-ins to ensure students understand what you want. All students must be able to complete the task in less than five minutes.
Examples of outgoing tickets
What are one, two, or three main topics, facts, or skills you want your students to learn from your class? Statements in the 3-2-1 style are popular, but single or multiple choice questions also have their place. Here are the basic questions as examples of exit tickets.
- In what ways do you already use _____ in your everyday life?
- What two things did you learn about _____ today?
- How well do you think you understand ______? (images of exit tickets: thumbs up, thumbs out, thumbs down)
- Two things I've learned, two things I doubt.
- Describe ______ in your own words and draw a picture.
- What is your position on ______? Why do you think that?
- What grade would you give yourself for your commitment today?
