iClicker Cloud uses Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standards to publish scores from students' iClicker Reef accounts to the LMS gradebook with a single click. This integration is an alternative to the manual export/import process with external CSV files. Before you can proceed, ensure that your LMS admin has enabled iClicker as an external tool.

Currently, iClicker Cloud is a single column upload. Every time you sync your scores, the column will be automatically updated to reflect the new total.

Note: If you are a TA you will need professor credentials to complete this process.
