Step 2: Add Classes and Students

Now that you've signed up on plickers.com, you're ready to add a central part of your profile - your Classes.

Your Plickers experience will revolve around your Classes. You'll add students to Classes, play content via your Classes, and analyze results in the context of your Classes.

There are two methods you can try here. The quickest is to use our Import from Google Classroom feature. Alternatively, if you don't use Google Classroom, it's easy to take the Plickers route too.

Using Google Classroom

If you already have a Google Classroom account set up, this method means you won't need to spend extra time re-entering your student rosters within Plickers.

Here's how it's done:

    1. Head over to plickers.com on your laptop/computer and sign in

      You'll see the following homepage:

    2. In the left-hand sidebar, click on the link called 'New Class'

      A popup window will appear that looks like this:

    3. Click on 'Import from Google Classroom...'

    4. Select the Google account you wish to use

      You'll be asked to allow Plickers access to your account.

    5. Select the Classes you'd like to import

      You can check the boxes next to your chosen classes, then press the blue 'Import Classes' button (as shown below).

    6. Your Classes will then appear in the left-hand sidebar of your homepage

If you then click on one of your Classes, your Class homepage will appear, and you'll see that your student roster has automatically been imported too.

  Tip

To edit your student roster, start off by making the required changes within your Google Classroom account. Then in your Plickers Class homepage, click Edit Students, then Sync Students.

Using Plickers to add Students

With your Classes set up, you're ready to start adding your student rosters.

https://devnf2wxtzrq0.cloudfront.net/Gifs/Final/Add Students 2 small.gif

      1. Navigate to the Class you'd like to work with

        You can reach your Class homepage by clicking on the name of your Class in the left-hand sidebar of plickers.com

      2. Click on the 'Add Students' button

        A popup window will appear, and you'll be able to enter your students into the left-hand text box.

      3. Enter your students' names

         There are two ways you can do this:

        • You have two formats to choose from here:

          • First name then last name - if you use a 'space' when inserting names, we assume the forename appears first e.g. Alex Sanchez

          • Last name then first name - if you use a comma, we assume the surname appears first e.g. Sanchez, Alex

        • To save time, you may want to paste in an existing roster. You'll just need to make sure that each student shows on a new line, and their first names and last names are ordered consistently (as described in the box above).

      4. Check and sort your student names

        All your students will appear on the right-hand side of the window as they're entered. Have a quick check of these to make sure they all look correct. Then click 'Next'.

        In the next window, you'll be given the opportunity to sort your student names alphabetically (either by first name or last name) or to keep the order as originally entered.

        Note the numbers on the left-hand side of the 'Sort' window - these will be your students' card numbers. Further details on cards can be found here.

          Tip

        It is possible to change card numbers for each student - click here to find out how.

      5. Click 'Done' and review your new Class homepage

        At this point, you'll arrive at your Class homepage, where you'll see your list of student names at the bottom.

          More Info

        For further details on what's possible within your Class homepage, click here.

With your Classes now created, you're ready to start adding the content you'll be playing to your students.
