As a teacher, it's crucial to create and gather daily formative assessment data that is manageable and meaningful. However, it seems we often lean towards paper and pencil exit slips that use up a lot of paper and fill up our evenings with grading papers.
Instead, check out something I've discovered called, Plickers. Plickers provide the teacher with instantaneous feedback, which drives future instruction. In recent years, I've used the fancy electronic clickers, but those were cumbersome and not user-friendly. Plickers are a simple tool that teacher can rely on to be a big hit with kids and their colleagues.
