How “exit tickets” can help improve classroom experiences: Editorial


In a recent editorial for Inside Higher Ed, Ashley Mowreader spotlights the classroom technique of using “exit tickets” to prompt a feedback cycle between instructors and students. “Exit tickets” are brief written prompts given at the end of class that students must answer (either anonymously or not) and submit prior to exiting the classroom. These prompts can be used to gauge student learning, stimulate self-analysis and reflection, or facilitate open communication between instructors and students. Key to the success of this technique is ensuring that the instructor responds to the comments recorded in these exit tickets, either in an email, course announcement, or in the next class.
