  • Only students listed on the Canvas roster as registered or non-registered students will show up in the iClicker Gradebook. Instructors and TAs will not appear on the Gradebook list.

Remind students to register their iClicker remotes

Names of students who have not registered their iClicker remotes will show in red in the iClicker gradebook roster. You can remind these students to register their iClicker remotes in Canvas, or register them in Trunk.
