If you run iClicker off of your p-drive, or some other remote drive, you may run into a problem where your iclicker tool bar that allows you to start and stop polls is missing. This is because you may be running the software from multiple computers that have different screen sizes and resolutions. So when your tool bar disappears, it is really there, but is pushed off the current screen.
To get around this problem, you will need to quit iClicker. Because the tool bar is missing this may be done by force quitting the program via the task manager (Cntrl Alt Delete on the PC and Cmd option esc on the Mac). Restart the iClicker software, but instead of choosing “Start Session” choose “Your Settings and Preferences”. Note in the General tab of your preferences that there is a reset button that resets the position of the iClicker tool bar. Clicking reset will move the toolbar back to a reasonable position on your screen.
iClicker has provided instructions via the linked pdf below.
In order to grade your students using iClickers you will need to associate the iClicker ID and the student’s ID. To accomplish this you will need to have your students register via the iclicker registration web site: http://www.iclicker.com/registration/
Once your students have completed the registration form and you have held at least one iClicker session, you may update your course registration information using the Synchronize Web Registrations feature.
Click Synchronize Web Registrations from the main iGrader window.
A Synchronize Web Registrations window will appear with a description of the synchronization function. Click Continue to proceed.
iGrader synchronizes your roster information with your students’ online registrations. After synchronization is complete, click Done to return to the main iGrader window.
If an inconsistency between your roster and the web registrations exist, you will be prompted to resolve it before synchronization is completed. The software will alert you to any discrepancies between your roster and the web registrations.
You will have to bring the response hub to your class and plug it into the computer you wish to use (laptop or classroom computer).
When you are ready to poll your students, launch the iClicker software and initiate the poll.
The iClicker interface hovers over any program, so you can ask the question via powerpoint, the web, or any other program you are using as an aid in your class.
When you start the poll using the iClicker software, your students will respond by selecting the appropriate response. All data is collected on the USB stick that plugs into the iClicker receiving hub.
