How scores sync to Sakai


iClicker Cloud score totals are synced to Sakai as percentages normalized to the points you defined in Sakai. While points in iClicker Cloud are built up from zero, the scores in Sakai start at the maximum number of points and are updated every time a sync is performed.

EXAMPLE: Halfway through the term, an instructor has run 20 polling sessions worth a total of 160 points. In Sakai, the instructor defined the iClicker Cloud grade item to be worth 50 points for their course. A student with an iClicker Cloud score of 120 points will show a Sakai score of 37.5 points when syncing scores.

  • iClicker Cloud: (120 pts earned) / (160 pts possible) = 0.75

  • LMS: (0.75)(50 pts possible) = 37.5 pts earned

Even though the percentage shown in iClicker Cloud is shown as an integer, the synchronized percentage retains greater precision so that the Sakai score is converted accurately.

EXAMPLE: After the first week of class,an instructor has run sessions worth a total of 6 points. In Sakai, the instructor defined the iClicker Cloud grade item to be worth 100 points for their course. A student with an iClicker Cloud score of 5 points will show an iClicker Cloud percentage of 83%, but the conversion in Sakai displays 83.33.

  • iClicker Cloud: (5 pts earned) / (6 pts possible) = 0.8333 or 83% when rounded

  • LMS: (0.8333)(100 pts possible) = 83.33 pts earned
