100 kids X 6 comprehension questions = 600 short answer questions every week
I don't know about you, but I just don't have the time for that. So here is one way I manage it. First, make yourself some of those "ticket out the door" posters. I have 5 or 6 for each group because each poster is for one question.
Then, I put the kids into groups of 2 or 3, depending on how many kids you have this would vary. Each group gets a number. That number is where they put their answer on the poster. For example, if they were group #1, their answer will always go in the #1 boxes.
Each group also gets their own sticky note color. This is more for fun and to help my eyes when looking over them. You could just do it with plain old yellow stickies if you wanted. Each group gets a sticky note for each question (5 questions = 5 sticky notes).
After they discuss all of their answers, they write them on the sticky note and place them in the boxes. I can then quickly look over all of their answers for each comprehension question.

SO MUCH FASTER than grading each one separately!
