Self-Paced Polling - iclicker v6
Self-paced polling allows students to answer questions at their own pace. You may use self-paced polling with an answer key so that students can receive immediate feedback. You must register students with the iclickers prior to polling if you want to assign grades.

This article works for version 6 of iclicker and may work for previous versions. If you need instructions for version 7, visit the Knowledgebase articles.
