The aim of the enquiry was to understand the impact of using an exit pass for self assessment. Assessment is for learning (Aifl) strategies give a coherent response to children’s learning and their continuous development needs within the classroom. Education Scotland states that an Aifl school is ‘… a place where everyone learns together’ (Government, 2005).
This statement was at the heart of my enquiry as I tested how an exit pass at the end of a series of lessons can be used to support further teaching, and ultimately to enrich the pupils’ experiences.
The purpose of this enquiry was to:
- Experiment with a variety of exit passes, document pupil responses and summarise the impact of different styles of exit pass for teaching and learning
- Profile how exit pass information impacts teaching and pupil experience.
- Review pupil responses and investigate the correlation between exit pass information, response rate and quality
