Exit Slips are responses to questions about key concepts.  They are used at the end of a class.  It should take no more than 5 minutes to fill out an exit slip.  With Exit Slips teachers can quickly assess class understanding of key concepts. Teachers can also determine which students need additional help.  With feedback from exit slips, teachers can make adjustments to their next lecture in order to cover any inadequacies.

Admit slips are similar toExit Slips, but they are done at the beginning of the class.  Students may be asked questions about homework or the prior day’s lesson.
