Entrance & Exit Questions

"Entry and exit tickets are short prompts that can provide instructors with a quick student diagnostic. These exercises can be collected on 3”x5” cards or small pieces of paper, or online through a survey or course management system."
  • "Entry tickets focus student attention on the day’s topic or ask students to recall background knowledge relevant to the day’s lesson."
  • "Exit tickets collect feedback on students’ understanding at the end of a class and provide the students with an opportunity to reflect on what they have learned."  Source: Brown University

Here are 10 other things you didn't know you could do with Flubaroo (only 4 minutes long!)

Adam Schoenbart of TechLearning.com said, 
"Instead of spending my time on grading, I want to use it to give stronger feedback, help students grow, and build better relationships...decided to start the second week of classes with students making arguments for their own grades...I want to move away from traditional grading but am still trying to find balance as I learn more about effective systems and practices."
