Virtual or digital exit tickets are a quick, easy and most importantly informative way of supporting teaching and learning.
Read on for a quick and easy 3 step process for using digital exit tickets.
When running virtual exit tickets it’s important to pick the right tools for the job.
Ziplet is a free, easy and comprehensive tool specifically designed for digital exit tickets.
When using a virtual exit ticket, it’s important to make sure you’re asking the right types of questions. There are a few helpful guidelines for asking an exit ticket question:
If you’re using Ziplet for your virtual exit tickets, you can choose from an existing bank of questions that adhere to best practice. Questions cover categories including growth mindset, SEL, relationship building, classroom climate, problem-based learning, student voice, teacher practice and more.
Once you’ve asked a question, it’s important to follow up with your students to let them know their feedback is valued and important.
There are a few useful steps for taking action based on student feedback.
Take some time to review student responses. By reviewing the answers of multiple students you can start to identify patterns which allow you to take action.
Ziplet’s word cloud feature indicates themes of student responses, and how prevalent they were. It’ll help guide how you target your teaching.
Once you have responses from your students you should take time to reply to them, either individually or collectively. This helps students know their responses have been read and encourages them to respond to exit tickets in future (something which is particularly important when running virtual exit tickets).
You can send an emoji reaction to student responses in Ziplet, or reply to students within the app, so you can keep all your messages and exit tickets in one place. It even lets you send the same message to multiple students individually so you can save time if multiple students have a similar response.
We all know that no two students are the same. Each learns differently. It’s our responsibility and privilege to differentiate the curriculum to suit individual needs.
You can see which students had a similar response and what comments they have made. This helps you to spot patterns, message relevant students and follow up on students with similar issues. It can also help know which students need to be extended in their learning.

At a glance, you’ll be able to gauge students’ levels of understanding as a cohort. If many didn’t grasp the concepts, you can revisit next lesson.
