Student Response Enhancements

Exit Polling

Once a polling session is ended, instructors will now see an option to ask students an exit poll question. When students provide feedback via exit polling, instructors gain a deeper level of insight into students’ understanding of concepts covered in class.
A pop-up window reads: End Your Session? Ending a session will disconnect you from the server. If you end the session with an exit poll, your students will be asked to give post-class feedback. In-text link: Learn more about exit polls. At bottom, three buttons: End Session with Exit Poll, End Session, Don't End.

Word Cloud

Short answer question results can now be displayed as a Word Cloud. This new option provides a highly visual (and fun!) representation of students’ responses and highlights key themes.

Increased Instructor Flexibility

Multi-Column LMS Sync

The new multi-column grade sync option allows instructors using iClicker Cloud to sync individual poll and quiz session scores to the school’s LMS, which improves visibility into students’ performance and engagement in each session.
A graphic example of the iClicker Cloud Settings modal window shows five categories: Course Details, Grade Sync (selected), Clickers, Polling, and Quizzing. The Grade Sync panel displayed here provides three radio button options from which instructors may choose: No integrated grade sync (manual export only), Single-column grade sync, or Multi-column grade sync.

Roster Management

Students can now be removed from an iClicker course from the web’s Roster page. This update enhances the roster management functionality of the web application to align with the current desktop roster management capabilities.

Modify Session Details

Instructors can now change the name of any Poll, Quiz, or Attendance session from the instructor website.

Web Session Inactivity Extension

Instructors can now extend the web session before the session expires due to inactivity which provides faculty more control control over the length of time their session remains open. Instructors now have 60 minutes before an inactivity expiration notice appears.

Best Answer Selection

Instructors can now select and send best correct answer responses to students for Short Answer and Numeric questions with multiple correct responses.
An example of the results to a short answer question about crustaceans. Results are presented across 5 columns: Mark answer correct, star question as best, the short answer text response submitted, how many votes each response has received, and % of all votes each response has received. The image indicates that the question has three responses, each response has one vote and 33% of all votes, and the second response has been starred as best.
