Exit Tickets

Use as a quick assessment of learning at the end of a lesson/series of lessons.

A couple of well written questions can save you marking pages of work to discover when you can move on or whether there are mis-conceptions that you need to tackle.

I take them in as students leave the room, mark and place on students desks as they enter the next lesson.  Students then stick them in their books and correct any mistakes.
