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.

Step 1

Step 2

If you have any remote IDs that are not associated with a student's name, select Sync Roster in the toolbar at the top.

Step 3

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.

Step 5

Select which session(s) you would like to send to Canvas. Then select Next.

Step 6
