Exit ticket is the assessment method used at the end of the instruction and may be helpful in summarizing the concepts and ideas at once. In exit tickets, the practice of jotting down key ideas stimulates the development of tinkerer’s; But on pieces of paper or slip, students tinker with ideas which results in questioning of their text or each other.

THINK-PAIR-SHARE IN VISUAL ARTS
Think-pair-Share is the assessment method used at any time during the teaching process to activate thinking, process new ideas, or reflect on learning. Each student is required to think answers of the questions either individuals or in pair, then write their answers on a sheet of paper then pass around the sheet to other members of the classroom to share their responses and feedback and also the responses can be viewed in groups or in pairs. Its a good idea using think-pair -share in the google classroom where each person comments on each other post after thinking about the answers to a given task and closing the thread. “Close your own threads”, There is a direct need to shift paradigm from traditional assessment methods and to encourage teachers to use different assessment methods in their classroom.
