iClicker Cloud score totals are synced to Blackboard as percentages normalized to the points you defined in Blackboard. While points in iClicker Cloud are built up from zero, the scores in Blackboard 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 Blackboard, the instructor defined the iClicker Cloud grade item to be worth 50 points for their course. A student with a iClicker Cloud score of 120 points will show a Blackboard 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 Blackboard score is converted accurately.
Example: After the first week of class, an instructor has run sessions worth a total of 6 points. In Blackboard, the instructor defined the iClicker Cloud grade item to be worth 100 points for their course. A student with a iClicker Cloud score of 5 points will show a iClicker Cloud percentage of 83%, but the conversion in Blackboard 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
