I will be using iClicker software this semester to conduct polls, quizzes, and/or attendance in class. This will help me understand what you know and give everyone a chance to participate in class. This will also give you feedback on how well you are comprehending course concepts, help you master the challenging material in this class, and allow you to review material after class.
You are required to bring your smart phone, tablet or laptop device to participate in my iClicker sessions during class.
It is your responsibility to properly setup your iClicker account in a timely fashion. It is also your responsibility to regularly check your iClicker grades for any discrepancies and bring them to my attention quickly.
Regardless of which device you use in class, you must create an iClicker account–or use your existing iClicker account if you already have one–to ensure that your grades sync to my iClicker gradebook. You can do this by downloading the iClicker Reef mobile app via the App Store or Google Play, or by visiting iclicker.com.
Then, you must connect your iClicker account within our Canvas course. To do this, you must navigate to the iClicker Sync registration link in Canvas, click the link, then sign into your iClicker account from the window that opens. You can find the registration link for iClicker on the course menu This will automatically add our class to your iClicker account. It is also required that you enter your Mizzou pawprint accurately in the Student ID field of your Reef profile. Do not enter your student number there as the system will not recognize this.
Students who fail to properly set up their iClicker accounts within the first two weeks of the semester will miss out on iClicker points. It is your responsibility to make sure your account is in working order, and to regularly check your grades for any discrepancies and bring them to my attention immediately. If you already have a iClicker account, simply add my course to it. Do not create a duplicate account.
Class attendance/polls will be worth X% of your final grade. You will earn X points for each correct question you answer. Likely, X questions will be asked each lecture period. Your final grade will be calculated as (questions you respond to)/(total number of questions) x 100. This percentage will be synced after every class / once a week / etc from iClicker into Canvas once you properly set up your iClicker account, but you can also view your points on the iClicker web site or iClicker Reef app.
Academic Integrity Information
iClicker activities fall under the provisions of our campus's academic honesty policy. Students must not engage in academic dishonesty while participating in iClicker activities. This includes but is not limited to answering polling questions while not physically in class, looking at other students' devices while answering live questions, or using more than one iClicker account at a time.
Any student found to be in violation of these rules will lose iClicker points for the entire term and may be reported to the Office of Academic Integrity (https://oai.missouri.edu).
