A student says she has been participating in polls during class, but her scores aren't appearing in the grade book. What can I do?

Make sure the student has registered her iClicker and that she is using the correct frequency code during polls.

If she has registered, check to see if her remote ID appears at the top of the grade book with no name association. If that is the case, you can click on the remote ID and select the student's name from the list of registered students. You can also try to click on the student's name in the grade book and add her remote ID from the back of her remote. If you get an error, see Missing iClicker Scores from the Grade Book for Individual Students for details on how to fix the issue.
