DOWNLOADING YOUR ROSTER FROM THE AGORA PORTAL

  1. Login to http://portal.bc.edu and open the My Services tab.
  2. Select Manage your Courses.
  3. From the list of courses which appears, click the iGrader button to select the one for which you need the roster.

A ".txt" file with the number of your course will be sent to your BC email account.

Move this file to the i>clicker software folder, in Classes > Name of Class, and change the name to roster.txt. You will then be ready to move forward with registration.

DOWNLOADING YOUR COURSE ROSTER FROM CANVAS

This process assumes that your i>clicker account has been previously linked with your Canvas course by an IDeS staff member.

1. To begin, open your i>grader application.

This will not overwrite any existing scores.

Once the process is complete, select "Restart i>grader" now. i>grader will open with the list of students visible on the left. Students whose names appear in black have already registered their clickers; students whose names appear in black have not. After students register their clickers (see the following step), return to i>grader and click Sync again to complete the process.
