Digital Exit Tickets are Easy With This Great New Tool

Exit tickets are a well-known tool for gauging comprehension, or as a strategy for formativeassessment. Traditionally done at the end of class, on a piece of paper, teachers gather oneor two answers from students to see who grasped a concept, and to flag any difficultiesstudents may be having. With an increase in remote learning and concerns around spreading illness by passingaround pieces of paper, strategies like paper exit tickets are no longer a viable option. Sohow can we adapt this practice for the new education landscape?
