TurningPoint 8 has a feature which allows the software to automatically update the results for a session when new registration becomes available. That can be problematic when you have made manual changes on Blackboard that will be overwritten or you have changed the column type. These steps will tell you how to prevent it from automatically updating.
TurningPoint features an option to automatically email your students who haven’t completed their registration with instructions on how to do so. It will only email your students with problems, not the ones with completed accounts.
As of the Summer 2018 semester, we are transitioning from TurningPoint Cloud to TurningPoint 8. This comes with some exciting new features, but also requires just a little bit of extra preparation to get started.
At times it may be necessary to re-add a Tools area link that has been removed from your course. This article will tell you how to do that.
Is your TurningPoint running slowly? It could be that your PowerPoints are being embedded in your session files. If your PowerPoint files are very large that can bring your software to a crawl.
At times it will be necessary to update the firmware of your receiver. These are the instructions for completing the update.
To prevent interference, individual classrooms on campus have been assigned unique clicker channels.
It may sometimes be necessary to manually edit a student’s grades. This could be because they forgot their clicker and you allowed them to take their quiz or on paper or because of some other set of extenuating circumstances. It’s important to manually edit these scores within the TurningPoint software itself as opposed to inside of Blackboard to prevent the changes you make being overwritten.
While the Mac and PC versions of TurningPoint are very similar, there are a few little quirks you need to know if you will be creating your presentation on Mac and then presenting it on a PC.
