QuizMaker '13 Hosted on CourseMill: FAIL + FAIL = PASS
Sep 08, 2016
I produced a module with quiz for a client hosted on CourseMill 7 LMS. The client noted some odd behavior with how the quiz was working and asked me to take a look. I was able to get a 100% passing score in the LMS by purposefully failing the quiz, retrying the quiz, and failing a second time. So I built a short quiz to use as a test bed to try a few different settings (like setting the SCORM reporting to incomplete/completed instead of failed/passed, etc.).
To make a long story short, I found no solution, but I did determine that the behavior occurs only when retrying the quiz during the same session OR when returning later and resuming the quiz. I took the test module to the SCORM cloud, and it worked as it should. So in my mind I suspected the LMS, right?
Well, the host of the LMS tried to duplicate my issue and build a test quiz in QuizMaker. And it worked fine in the LMS. The difference? They used the '09 version. So I produced a functionally identical '09 test quiz based on my '13 test quiz that doesn't work. And the '09 version works.
So what's the difference in publishing to SCORM 1.2 from '09 to '13?
Is there anyone in the community who works with CourseMill as a host LMS that could lend a hand? I'm happy to share mt '13 test package ...
