Laura Blankenship showed 3 different ways students could complete exit tickets using their phones: Google Forms, Quizizz, and Today's Meet. All are free, web based, and available on the school WiFi. Feel free to ask Laura for a demo or help creating your own exit ticket!

Quizlet

Nancy Lewis uses Quizlet to set up review and formative assessment activities. There are activities you can set up for free as well as additional features with a paid account. Quizlet is also now available for Android and iPhone. Check it out! Ask Nancy if you have questions.
