Before syncing grades to your LMS, please make sure that you have already created the iClicker Cloud Association Link in your LMS.
  1. Click Launch Gradebook within your iClicker Cloud course dashboard to open a new browser that takes you directly to your course Gradebook online, or go directly to and login with your username and password.
  1. In the online gradebook, click the Sync Grades button to synchronize your iClicker Cloud score totals to your LMS. Students who have used the link will show a green dot in the Sync Connection column. Whenever you sync your scores, you also send an email reminder to any student who has not yet used the link you created. You can turn this option off in the Grade Sync tab of your Course Settings.
TIP: The online Roster export includes the Sync Connection status for your students.

How Score Totals are Synced
iClicker Cloud score totals are synced to your LMS as percentages. In the LMS, you define the total points iClicker Cloud is worth for your course. When you sync the iClicker Cloud percent, it is normalized to reflect the percentage of points defined in the LMS.

Example: Halfway through the term, an instructor has run 20 polling sessions worth a total of 160 points. In the LMS, the instructor defined the iClicker Cloud grade item to be worth 50 points for their course. A student with a score of 120 points will show an LMS score of 37.5 points when syncing scores
  • LMS: (0.75)(50 pts possible) = 37.5 pts earned
  • iClicker Cloud: (120 pts earned) / (160 pts possible) = 0.75
