Reef Polling & IClicker Policy

All students are required to purchase a subscription to Reef Polling & iClicker. The subscription allows students to associate an electronic device (e.g. smartphone) with their account. Students are expected to bring the device associated with their Reef Polling subscription to class regularly to be prepared if the technology is used by faculty. Learning events will proceed as planned, whether a student has forgotten their device. 

This technology may be used to provide practice with concepts and principles, to stimulate discussion, to take attendance and/or administer assessments. Questions may be posed at any time during the class session. No makeup experiences will be provided should a student forget their device. 

If Reef Polling is used to take attendance, students will be expected to arrive in class on time and to stay for the duration of the assigned activity. 

As a matter of professionalism, please note that under no circumstances should a student loan their device to another student, nor should a student ever use another student’s device to access Reef Polling. Answering questions or checking in for attendance on behalf of another student by using their device is considered to be an act of dishonesty and may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the program.
