I have never used an exit card until my Year 11 class last week. The topic was “Matrices”. I prepared 3 questions, as shown below, to see if my students had learnt some of the key skills. I handed out the cards with only 5 minutes of the lesson remaining. This was a mistake. Not enough time! But give my students credit, they all kept working after the bell until finished.
I will use their answers this week to reteach any concepts not understood. I will definitely keep using exit cards and with practice will get my timing right.
Matt at “Educational Aspirations” has a good blog post on the use of exit cards.
How do you use “Exit Cards”???
