The Many Uses of Exit Slips 
by Robert J. Marzano

Hi All,

This year I have set a goal to use exit slips more consistently in all content areas. Last year, I used exit slips primarily in math to obtain a quick formative feedback. I found that this practice allowed me to know what my kids needed and how to efficiently organize my small group and extension work. After reading this article, I have decided to use exit slips throughout the day for various reasons. I am a big believer in students being held accountable for their learning and liked the idea of using a exit slip for students to reflect on their group work and effort on specific assignments.

The attached article highlights various ways in which exit slips may be used. Do you currently use exit slips? After reading this article, do you feel that there are different ways in which you may use them in the future?

Take care IW Friends,

Erin Gonshor
