Uploading Clicker Marks

Clicker data should be placed in the directory /-clickers/<lec#>/. For example, /u/cs135/w10-clickers/lec001/.

The directory structure for the iClicker data collected in class changed between the Fall09 and Winter10 terms. It appears that the easiest way to account for this change is to omit the extra directory structure when uploading to the course account. The scripts assume that the directory listed above contains a directory named SessionData/. That directory is now buried deeper in the directory hierarchy on the data collection computer than previously.

If the data collection computer includes the Unix rsync utility, the following is an easy way to keep the data synchronized with the course account:

rsync -avz --inplace --delete \
   iClicker001/Classes/CS135-CS135-001/ \
   cs135@student.cs.uwaterloo.ca:w10-clickers/lec001/

The iClicker001 is the directory containing the iClicker tools. It now supports multiple classes (the point of Classes). The CS135-CS135-001 is constructed somehow by the iClicker tool from data collected in the configuration dialog.

In the third line of the command, replace w10-clickers with the relevant term's directory.

Of course, instead of typing the above over and over, put it into a shell script or a makefile.
