iClicker Cloud is replacing iClicker Classic as the single supported iClicker instructor software for classes starting in January 2024. Visit iClicker's announcement page for more information.
One easy way to take attendance in your course is by using iClicker polling. To use iClicker polling, please follow the steps below.
Note: If you already have iClicker set up in your Canvas course, skip to Setting up Participation Points within iClicker.
Download the software from our iClicker Classic Instructor Overview and follow the instructions in that article to pair the iClicker course with your Canvas course site.
Set polling sessions to only record participation points.
For information about running an attendance session, please see this article.
The session will be brought over into your Canvas course as an assignment, which will generate a column in your course's gradebook. The grade column in your Canvas course will be named "Session" followed by the number of sessions you've run in the program (e.g., Session 1). To change the name of the grade column to a date, simply edit the name of the assignment.
Please note: changing the name of the assignment will not create any problems when moving any future grades from iClicker into Canvas.
If you wish to grade students in iClicker using correct/incorrect answers, please see this guide for more information.
