How do you assess students during a plants unit? One of my favourite strategies during a unit of study, is to use exit cards. There are easy to use and students can complete before they leave the classroom.

How to Formatively Assess StudentsDuring a Plants Unit

Use Exit Cards as Formative Assessment

Before students leave class, have them fill out an exit card based on the activities or learning that occurred during the lesson. Your exit card questions or tasks may be used to find out specific details about learning or general information that you can use to plan instruction. Sample exit card tasks may include asking students to:

  • list the needs of plants,
  • draw a picture of a plant and label the different parts, or
  • write two questions they have about plants.
