Assessing Students with Twitter-Style Exit Slips Transcript
Speaker 1: "Are you ready for this?"
Speaker 1: "Okay." One way to quickly assess your students when they leave their class is to give them a Twitter-style exit slip. "Now remember, this is a tweet." It's so sophisticated. Kids are like, "Ooh, Twitter." "Take your tweet, and start writing on that." Before my students leave the class, I have them choose one of three questions that they must answer in one hundred and forty characters or less. "What are the characters?"
Class: "Letters, spaces, and punctuation."
Speaker 1: "Okay." It provides variety for one, and it also gives them the challenge of thinking about what they learn.
Speaker 3: "People write blogs to show emotions and feelings against a claim or an argument, like against somebody, like a debate in writing class." That would have been a Twitter.

Speaker 1: They have to think quickly, and they have to be concise in their answer.
Class: "Have a nice day, [inaudible 00:01:27]."
Speaker 1: "You, too." I don't have to pick out of a whole paragraph what they have learned. "Ooh, you did it. Okay."
