How to Link a Device to a Student

You can either update your Participant List/roster using the auto update function built in to TP5, or you can manually update using the steps below:

  1. Launch TurningPoint and go into the Manage tab.
  2. Click on the desired participant list.
  3. Click the Results Manager button.
  4. Click on the name of the student to whom you want to link a particular clicker. The row will be highlighted in pink.
  5. In the Information Pane on the right under Participant View, click on Devices to expand.
  6. Click on the plus button in the right pane to add the unregistered device.
  7. In the Assign Device ID window, enter the unregistered device ID of the student and click OK. The unregistered clicker device is linked to the student.

If your class is not very large, you can use the alternate steps below:

  1. In Results Manager, scroll down and click on the device listed in the Unassigned Devices.
  2. Choose the student from the Choose Participant drop-down list.
  3. Click Assign to Participant. The device will disappear from the Unassigned Devices section.
