Syncing Your Canvas Roster with iClicker
Open the course in Canvas and go to the gradebook. Select Export in the top right corner. Open the csv file in Microsoft Excel.
Select the File tab and then select Save As.
Navigate to the SUUiclickerwin7 folder (folder you extracted earlier), open it, and then open the Classes folder. Then open the folder named after the course from which you just exported the grade book.
Rename the file to roster_canvas. You must name the file this name in order for iClicker to recognize it. Then select Save.
Select Yes when a window opens asking if you want to keep using the CSV format.
Close Excel. When a window appears asking if you want to save changes to the file, select Don't Save.
Reopen the iclicker program and select Settings.
Select the Gradebook tab and then select the Select Course button.
Log into Canvas.
Choose the course for which you are using iclicker and then select Select.
Select Open Gradebook.
Verify that all of your students have been downloaded into the grade book. Go to Uploading iClicker Scores to Canvas for instructions on sending iClicker data to Canvas.
This tutorial will show you how to update your iclicker to the newest version.
Open the iclicker.exe file.
Select Help in the toolbar at the top and select Check for Update.
Uploading iClicker Scores to Canvas
This tutorial will show you how to send your iclicker data from the iclicker program to your Canvas grade book. iClicker should already be integrated with Canvas at this point. If it is not, see the Set Up iClicker Integration for Canvas tutorial before continuing with this tutorial.
Open the iclicker program, select the appropriate course, and then select Open Gradebook.
If you have any remote IDs that are not associated with a student's name, select Sync Roster in the toolbar at the top.
Once the synchronization process is complete, you will see a window that tells you how many records were updated. Select Close. If all of your students have already registered their remotes, all remote IDs will be associated with a student, and so you will only see student names. However, if a student hasn't registered his/her remote, you will still see an unassociated remote ID after you sync. In order for the student to receive credit in Canvas for his/her responses, the student must register his/her remote.
Once every remote ID has been registered with a student, select Sync Scores in the toolbar at the top.
Select which session(s) you would like to send to Canvas. Then select Next.
Choose how you would like export your data. In the top section, the first option creates a separate column for each session. The second option combines all sessions into one column. The bottom section depends on settings you would have set before the session. Next, select Upload.
You will see a window showing the progress of the upload. Once all of the scores have been uploaded, the window will say Scores uploaded successfully. Select Close.
Navigate to the grade book and look for a column named after the session (Example: Session 1)
