Manually Upload Scores from iClicker Cloud to D2L Brightspace

You can manually add your iClicker Cloud grades to Brightspace by D2L by exporting iClicker scores and uploading them to the Brightspace gradebook

Important: Manual integration requires your students to enter their Brightspace username in the Student ID field of their iClicker account

Export a "Brightspace by D2L Format" .csv from iClicker Cloud

Visit your course at the iClicker Cloud instructor website, where you can export individual activity scores or grades for all class sessions.

Review the exported Usernames

Students with blank or unrecognized Username data (from the iClicker Student ID) will not have their scores uploaded. Brightspace does not use the Last Name, First Name, and Email columns; however, you may want to use this information to notify students who need to correct their iClicker student app profiles.

Delete unwanted grade items

The exported file contains a grade item for the total points as well as grade items for the individual activity scores. You should delete either the total or the individual activity columns to avoid counting scores twice. Although Brightspace provides an interface to selectively import grade items, deleting the columns now will save you time later.

  1. Navigate to Grades within your course.
  2. Under Enter Grades, select Import.
  3. Click Choose File.
  4. Select the iClicker Cloud grades export file.
  5. Select the check box for Create new grade item.
  6. Click the Continue button to go to the next step.

Select the grade items to add to your Brightspace gradebook

The iClicker Cloud exported file includes a grade item for each iClicker activity as well as one for the total score. If you haven't already deleted the unwanted grade items, you can now choose to either upload the individual activities or total points. Importing both will double-count points. Use the checkboxes to select the grade items you want to add to your Brightspace gradebook. Items not selected will be ignored.

Select Continue when you have completed making your selections.

Set the grade item properties

Review errors and warnings from unrecognized students in the file

Student entries that have a blank or unrecognized username will not have their scores uploaded into Brightspace. If you see a table of errors and warnings, not all of your students have correctly entered their Brightspace username into the Student ID field of their iClicker account.
