What’s It Like? ExitTicket is a rapid-response tool that lets teachers instantly poll, survey, or test student knowledge via custom quizzes called tickets. Teachers can create their own tickets or browse a library of tickets created by other educators. Kids can take Launch tickets (to start class), Practice tickets (to check for understanding), and Exit tickets (to end class). Teachers can launch Projector Mode from their own devices to display students’ responses in real time.

Price: Free

Grades: 5-12

Pros: Flexible features and terrific progress-tracking offer an effective way to get immediate feedback.

Cons: Teacher-side features can take a long time to set up.

Bottom line: A useful response tool for teachers who want a quick picture of what students know or think, but the wealth of features can be overwhelming.
