Not Receiving Clicker Points

You can check to see if you’re receiving your clicker points by logging into Blackboard and accessing the My Grades section of your course. If you don’t seem to be getting credit for your clicker question answers, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the instructor has actually uploaded the scores for the day in question.
  2. Make sure you’ve followed the Clicker Registration steps correctly.
  3. Make sure you’ve correctly followed the steps to set the clicker to the correct channel.
    • A common mistake is forgetting to press the Channel button a second time, after you’ve entered the 2-digit channel code.
    • Additionally, be sure that once you’ve set the channel successfully to not press the channel button before submitting your response.
    • You should see a long green light flash if you’ve joined the channel correctly.
  4. If you’re still not receiving points, try changing the device’s battery.

Important: If you have been answering clicker questions by using your clicker and setting the correct channel, but you have not yet registered your clicker, you can still receive your points once you register. However, if you are not correctly setting the channel, even if you are registered, then you may not receive any credit for the questions you answer.
