Setting Session Scores

i>clicker automatically assigns credit to registered students for participation and for correct answers (see Clicker Classroom Use). With i>grader, you can adjust points given for individual questions or individual polling sessions. You can view screenshots associated with each question and designate correct answers. Students' scores are re-calculated according to your choices.

To adjust scoring for a particular polling session, click the "Set Scores" button underneath the session title. There are three sections in the displayed Set Scores screen:

  1. Session Summary displays general information about the session.
  2. Participation and Attendance Points lets you adjust the number of points awarded for participating in the voting activities and the minimum number of responses required to qualify for participation. These points are awarded by session, not by individual question.
  3. Performance Points are awarded by question and are assigned to each question individually. Many professors use performance points to reward "correct" answers. Use the Previous and Next buttons to cycles through the questions. Click View Screenshot / Image to display the image of your screen (and likely your question) when polling occurred. You can rename the question, delete unwanted questions, specify the correct answer for a question, and assign points to individual answers. You can also see the results of the poll.


*Note You can assign full or partial credit for multiple answers by manually adding point values in any of the boxes above the five answer choices.

Creating HTML Reports

The Run/Update HTML Reports feature (located in the main i>grader screen) creates two reports for your use:

  • Term/Session Summary and Review provides a breakdown of polling data, both for your term to date and for individual sessions.
    • No individual student scores or votes are included in this report, making it ideal to share with your class as a post-lecture study guide.
    • The linked Summary Review reports contain individual question statistics, your question screen captures, and the voting results graphs for each session.
    • Student Voting Data contains your individual students' polling data and statistics, by session and by question.
      • This report also links your students' Cumulative Scores, which provide you with a printable overview of your students' entire performance during the term.
  • Student Voting Data contains your individual students' pooling data and statistics, by session and by question. This report also links to your students' Cumulative Scores, which provide you with a printable overview of your students' entire performance during the term.

To generate the reports

  1. Click the Run/Update HTML Reports button. This action generates/updates the reports in your course folder within your MyCoursePC/MyCourseMac > Classes folder and opens a Report Summary window.
  2. Select the report type by clicking on the appropriate link. A browser window will open with links to the individual reports in your course folder.
  3. View and print your reports through your web browser. Quit from the browser when you are finished.
  4. Click the Close button in the report Summary window to return to the main i>grader screen.
