Teaching Strategies: Entry and Exit Cards

Teachers looking for quick and fun ways to assess kids’ work and knowledge should know about the teaching strategies called entry and exit cards.

Basically, entry and exit cards are a quick diagnosis of student understanding. They are a quick, flashcard like assessment that sums up a lesson plan or topic for the day.

Today on TeachHUB.com, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, who is also an experienced educator on the East Coast, takes a look at what entry and exit cards are, and why you should use them. She also points out useful ways that entry and exit cards can be used.

Janelle sums up today’s article like this: “The entry and exit strategy can be used by itself or together. This means that you do not have to use an entry card and an exit card on the same day. This strategy is extremely useful because it is quick and teachers can use it as an informal way to assess students’ understanding of a concept.”
