iClicker Cloud single-column LMS integration uses Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standards to publish scores from students' iClicker Reef accounts to a single column in your LMS gradebook with an aggregate score. Every time you click to sync/send your scores, that column in your LMS will be automatically updated to reflect the new total.

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

Before you can proceed, ensure that your LMS admin has enabled iClicker as an external tool.

Copy your course-specific LTI link from iClicker Cloud

To find this link, follow these steps or watch the video below:

Open your iClicker Cloud course settings

Select your iClicker Cloud course and open the course settings. Click either the gear icon in the side panel or the Edit button on your course dashboard.

Single-column grade sync

From the Settings window, select the Grade Sync tab and select Single-column grade sync. Click Copy Link to copy the course-specific link. This link is unique for each iClicker Cloud course. You need to follow these directions for each course you are teaching and paste the specific link into your corresponding LMS course.

Log in to your LMS to create the iClicker Cloud association link

Note: You can create an iClicker LTI link for individual sections of an LMS course. Students will only see the link for their section. For more information about setting up links for individual sections of an LMS course, please contact support.

Direct your students to use the link you created

Students need to sign in to your LMS and use the link you created to sign in to their Reef account or create a new account if they don’t already have one.
  • Using the LMS link automatically adds your course to the student’s account. The student won’t have to search for your course to join it.

  • Students only need to use the link you created once to allow you to sync their score. Once the association is made, students may choose to go directly to the Reef student website or the Reef Student application on their mobile devices. Students may also use an iClicker student remote to respond in class, if you choose to allow this option. Regardless of the method students use to respond in class, they must all associate a Reef Student account through the link provided in your LMS course in order to have their scores properly sync to the LMS gradebook.

  • Returning students choosing to use the link you created will be automatically logged into their Reef Student accounts through single sign-on (SSO) and taken directly to your course page.

Run polling and quizzing sessions

After running polling and quizzing sessions, you can then synchronize grades from iClicker Cloud to your LMS.
