Using Google Classroom

If you have a Google Classroom account set up, you can link it to Plickers. You won't need to spend extra time re-entering your student rosters, and any edits you make to your students in Google Classroom can be transferred to your Plickers account (see note below).


If you ever need to edit the students within your Google Classes, remember to select Sync Students from the relevant Students page at More info about this is available here.
