PIDP 3260 Feedback Strategies Digital Project
Exit cards require students to answer particular questions on a piece of paper that is turned in before they leave the class. Exit cards allow the teacher to collect students’ responses and plan accordingly for the next class session, differentiating for the abilities and understanding of different students.
