iClicker Canvas Integration

iClicker Classic allows a seamless integration of iClicker session data into Canvas gradebook.

Set up your course in iClicker and add to Canvas Navigation

Open Course Settings

Open iClicker, select your course name from the course list and click Settings.

Select Course in Gradebook tab

Navigate to the Gradebook tab. BC Canvas should appear for the LMS Name. Click Select Course.

Log in to Canvas

Enter your Canvas username and password and click Login (these are the credentials you use to log into your version of Canvas).

Authorize iClicker to access Canvas

You will be asked if you would like to share your account with iClicker. To continue, click Authorize.

Select Canvas Course to add to Gradebook

Your list of Canvas courses should appear. Click your Canvas course title and then click Select. If you see 2 identical listings for your course, you can safely choose either.



Confirm the course listed

Your Canvas Course will now be listed in the Gradebook settings in iClicker Classic.

(Optional) Sync remote registrations from LMS only

You have the option to synchronize remote registrations from Canvas only. Checking this option will skip the national registration sync and find only registrations from your Canvas registration page.

(Optional) Change the way Zeros and Absences are uploaded to Canvas

If you would like to change the way zeros and absences are uploaded to Canvas, you can change the Export and upload settings in the iClicker settings gradebook tab. Without changing these settings, scores of zero and absences are uploaded as – (dash) to Canvas. There are two options available:

1. Upload zero scores as zero. When this option is selected, students who receive a score of 0 (meaning, they have no participation or performance points in iClicker but did vote in class), will show as a numeric value of 0 in Canvas (rather than – ).

2. Upload Ab (absences) as zero. When this option is selected, students who are absent (and show as Ab in iClicker Gradebook), will show as having a numeric value of 0 in Canvas (rather than – ). You can choose to select both options. If you select both zero and Ab to upload as numeric 0 in Canvas, scores of zero and Absences will both show as numeric 0 in Canvas (rather than – ) when scores are uploaded from iClicker Gradebook to Canvas.

Once finished with changes, click Save.
