Exit Tickets, mastery quizzes, and data…oh my! February 1 st & 2 nd Teach For America - Dallas
2 Defining an exit ticket Exit tickets independent practice During independent practice, there is still critical learning and teaching occurring. Exit tickets should be given after students have done independent practice. Exit tickets are your way to get a snap- shot of the level of learning that occurred during a single class period. Exit tickets are not a grade, but daily accountability to see whether students met the daily goal.
3 Planning an exit ticket TEK State assessment item Determine key points Create exit ticket Begin with the standard (TEK) you are teaching that day If your content isnt TAKs tested, choose another high stakes assessment Create content and procedural key points aligned to EOY assessment Use assessment items to determine exactly what students need to know and do Create 3-5 questions that assess students understanding of objective.
4 Executing an exit ticket There are several simple options… Provide an exit ticket sheet with the questions already on it (this can even be a half sheet) Provide students with quarter sheets of paper with spaces for their answers. Post/project the exit ticket questions. NAMEPERIOD EXIT QUESTION #1 EXIT QUESTION #2 EXIT QUESTION #3
5 Executing an exit ticket Cut students off after an allotted amount of time Put up the answers and have students grade their exit tickets Note: You can have students switch and grade one anothers exit tickets, but for times sake – we recommend having students grade their own. Do special shout outs (let students sign a special shout out board, give them a sticker, stamp their hand) or throw candy to students who got all of the questions correct
6 Exit Ticket Quick Tip Allow for 5-10 minutes total for exit ticket, grading, and wrap up. Suggestion for timing: 45 min. class – 3 short questions 90 min.+ class – 5 questions
7 Using an exit ticket in the moment As students leave, you should sort their exit tickets into three piles: A.Total Mastery (all correct) B.Almost Mastered (1-2 mistakes) C.No Mastery (all wrong)
8 Using an exit ticket in the moment When you look at the piles, consider which pile is the largest. If Pile A is largest, you had a successful lesson. If Pile B is largest, ask yourself, What are they getting stuck on and how do I adjust in the next class to avoid the same problem(s) again? If Pile C is largest, the lesson was not successful. Ask yourself, Where did they get stuck? Did they try? Were they confused about the concept? Do they have the remedial skills? Were my key points/INM clear? Spend more time in GP and do more frequent CFUs.
9 Using an exit ticket for the next day Use information from exit tickets to determine remediation or review for the next day. Spend time as needed reviewing a particularly tricky concept and then move on Show students daily mastery informally. Calculate this quickly with a calculator after school and show students their daily progress by posting results somewhere in the room. Post the results on a piece of butcher paper in the room or draw a bar graph on your dry erase board. This can help invest students in bellringers and learning new material quickly.

11 Mastery Quizzes!
12 Defining a mastery quiz Exit tickets mastery quiz A way to track mastery of weekly objectives Contains five questions for each objective covered throughout the week Gives teacher and students data quickly so they KNOW the level of learning taking place
13 Executing a mastery quiz Split the quiz into separate sections for each objective (this gives you mastery levels for each objective) (see attachment MQ.Plate Boundaries) Give the quiz at the beginning of class on Friday and have students grade in class Collect the quizzes and enter mastery into your tracker Post results using the visual tracking system in your classroom (see attachment singermeters.jpg)
14 Using a mastery quiz Make student success visual and accessible! Have students track their ongoing mastery on personal tracking sheets (you can also see attachment freeman bg.pdf)
15 Using a mastery quiz Use mastery quizzes to determine when to reteach, review, or practice Mastery Level Review, Reteach, or Practice 100% – 80%Practice 79% – 70%Review < 69%Reteach
16 Mastery Quizzes Check for Understanding 1.What is the purpose of a mastery quiz? 2.What is the difference between an exit ticket and mastery quiz?
