If you need a way to assess student understanding from your lesson, try giving your students an Exit Ticket to complete before they leave the classroom.
Students respond particularly well to an Exit Ticket which is subject specific and in a format that is easily recognisable. The example provided is a flight boarding pass, used in a Travel and Tourism lesson. The student adds their name against ‘passenger’ and then in the open space answers a plenary activity. Students then submit the Exit Ticket upon leaving the classroom.
The teacher then reviews the submissions after the lesson to help plan the next session, based on student understanding.
