ExitTicket: An App for Assessment
Summary : A Website/App Combo for Assessment!
ExitTicket is the app complement to the Exit Ticket website (https://exittix.com/). To begin, users must register with the Exit Ticket website, which will allow them to create classes and different types of assessments. On the website, users must click the “Edit Class” option to personalize their classes, which include the course name, ID, subject area, and grade level. Next, they can create assessments for the class by clicking the course from the main dashboard, which brings them to a new screen. On it, users can tap the “New Assessment” button, and they will be able to add a variety of assessments. The assessments can include multiple-choice, true/false, and free-response questions, and users can set the amount of time students have to complete it. Once the assessment is created, users can assign it by selecting a class, which makes it “visible” to them. To assign the assessment, users can tap the “Add Students” button that is located on the top of the screen, and it will provide a class code that students can enter into either the website or app version of Exit Ticket. (Students must register the first time they enter the class. From then on, they can use their username and password to enter the class.) Next, to access the assessments in the app or website, students must tap or click the assessment’s name. At this point, the assessment will load and students will be prompted to answer its questions. As they do, their responses will be tracked automatically and the results can be seen on the Exit Ticket website, under the “assessment” and “scorebook” tab.
Please note: There are additional options available in this website/app that exceed the scope of this review. Also, this website/app is available by subscription. Users are given a free trial period before having to make a purchase.
- After a lesson, teachers can have students complete a formative assessment in the form of a quiz using this app. Teachers can analyze results, which can be used to inform their instruction.
- Before a summative assessment, teachers can have students write review questions—true/false, multiple choice, and/or fill-in-the-blank—in the UX Write app and email the questions to them. Teachers can then select the best questions and use them to create a practice quiz as a review.
- Teachers can use the “Calendar” feature in the website to plan or review the quizzes that they will or have administered using this app.
- As homework, teachers can assign students a text to read and create an assessment in this app that students must complete after reading it.
