What is a Participant List?

A Participant List is a file from TurningPoint that allows you to tie question responses to a particular students. This file's data includes the course, the student's name, their Device ID, and their Net-ID.

When your students register their Device IDs or ResponseWare licenses within D2L, a participant list is created that is ready-to-use in TurningPoint. You may have more than one participant list depending on how many courses you have using clickers that semester.

While using a participant list, it is possible to export the scores from a TurningPoint session and import them into a D2L gradebook item. Without the participant list, there is no way to know who has what score, so using it if you'd like to use this feature is important. Please see the Importing Scores into D2L wiki page for more information.
