I assume that you didn't forget to evaluate the cell containing the assignments
In case you did
a=5;b=3;
Then SHIFT+RETURN (or enter on the numeric key-pad if you are on a desktop)
the evaluation is what makes Mathematica be aware of your assignments
then
a^b SHIFT + ENTER
and you are done

"a^b" is a string and will printout on an output cell as such
another thing to check - see if you are using an input cell for your assignments
