Entrance and Exit Tickets are quick methods of Formative Assessments that allow for teachers to check for understanding on that days, or the previous days, lesson topics. Please read the following article from Edutopia about Exit Tickets and how they can be used within the classroom, Exit Tickets. The same principals apply for Entrance Tickets, just that they occur in the beginning of class usually assessing the previous day's lesson.


If you are currently a teacher, pick a topic or objective that you have covered recently. If you are not currently a teacher, choose any topic or objective you would like. Create one or two problem(s)/question(s) that you feel that the students should be able to answer if they truly understood the topic or objective. This should be an activity students can finish in five minutes or less.


Share your topic and ideas from the Activity in the discussion section above. You do not need to explicitly write each problem out, but may describe them.
