Using SCORM

  2. Editing a SCORM package
  3. Removing simple sequencing from a SCORM package
  4. Viewing SCORM Reports on objects and users

Importing a SCORM package

If you use SCORM for your course, you must import an existing package as a zip file to Learning Environment. The SCORM package includes all the Sharable Content Objects (SCOs) and associated Sharable Content Assets (SCAs). Sequencing and navigation are also part of the package. See Importing course components from a file for detailed information about importing content.

Note  If your package is SCORM-2004 compliant you must select the Select all Components check box on the Select Course Material page for the sequencing and navigation to function properly.

Editing a SCORM package

See Creating new topics for all the ways you can edit SCORM objects.

In addition to these options, you can also attach a grade item to a SCORM object through the Content tool.

Note  Completing a quiz included in a SCORM package automatically generates a grade item in the grades list, populated with the quiz results. You can also create a grade item using the proceeding method before the student takes the quiz.

Create or edit a SCORM object's grade item

  1. Click Content on the navbar to access the Manage Content page.
  2. Select Edit from the context menu by the SCORM package you want to edit in the Content Items list.
  3. In the Assessment area of the Properties tab, select an existing Grade Item from the drop-down list or create a new one by clicking the New Grade Item link.

See Types of grade items for more information on grade items.

Removing simple sequencing from a SCORM package

You can remove the sequencing and navigation rules from a SCORM package if you want to use some of the modules or topics in another course, or reorder modules and topics in the current course.

If you do this, progress tracking data for all users using this SCORM package will be lost. The topics retain the SCORM icons after you remove the sequencing.

Remove simple sequencing

  1. Click Content on the navbar to access the Manage Content page.
  2. Click the Remove SCORM 2004 Simple Sequence icon next to the module for which you want to remove sequencing.

Viewing SCORM Reports on objects and users

If your course is based on SCORM, or uses SCOs as part of the course content, you have access to additional activity reports for each SCORM object and user. The reports track the activity on a topic and individuals’ progress with meeting defined objectives, and in defined interactions with the course content.

Note  The data in these reports depends on the data communicated to Learning Environment by your SCOs. For example, if the SCO does not set values for objectives, then no objective information is available in the SCORM reports for that SCO.

You can export SCORM statistics; however, unlike non-SCORM courses, you cannot reset the statistics.

Viewing reports on SCORM objects

For each SCORM object, Learning Environment records:

  • The number of user attempts on the object.
  • The number of attempts completed (Some attempts appear as incomplete if a user ends the attempt at an object).
  • The number of attempts passed and the average passing score.
  • Average time spent on the object.

You can also view details on user attempts, objectives, and interactions for each item.

View reports on SCORM objects

  1. Click Content on the navbar.
  2. Click Reports from the More Actions button.
  3. Click SCORM Reports.

View detailed reports on SCORM objects

  1. From the SCORM Objects tab on the SCORM Reports page, click one of the following icons:
    • Summary icon for information on users progress and whether their progress is complete or incomplete, their status, their score, number of attempts, time spent, average time spent, and when they last accessed it.
    • Objective Details icon for information on users progress with the course objectives including their score, status, progress, and progress measure.
    • Interaction Details icon for information on users attempts at the interactions in an objective including question type, correct response, learner response, result, weighting, and time spent.
  2. Click the Show Additional Details link to view totals of the information in the summary table.
  3. Click Go Back to return to the main SCORM Reports page.

Viewing reports on users of SCORM objects

For each user of SCORM content, Learning Environment records:

  • The user’s name and ID numbers.
  • The number of SCORM objects attempted.

You can also access details on a user's progress, status, scores, attempts, time spent, date last accessed, objective details, and interaction details.

View reports on users of SCORM objects

  1. Click Content on the navbar.
  2. Click Reports from the More Actions button.
  3. Click SCORM Reports.
  4. Click the Users tab.

View a detailed report on an individual user of SCORM content

From Users tab on the SCORM Reports page, click the name of the user you want to see detailed information on.

Note  Click Go Back to return to the main SCORM Reports page.
