Course mark complete even user failed quiz

Nov 17, 2016


This has been head scratching. We recently published our course with SCORM 2004 3rd Edition per our Cornerstone Learning Portal requirement. The issue is that the course mark complete even the user failed the quiz. We set the pass threshold to 80%. We don't have this issue with SCORM 1.2. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi, Jay! Great questions. A couple of scenarios for the first question:

1. Let's say you set completion at viewing 5 slides and your quiz is on one of those slides, learners who leave the course before finishing 5 slides will see a Failed status in the LMS. Those who exit the course after viewing 5 slides or more will see a Completed status. You can achieve this by selecting the Completed/Failed reporting option and tracking completion based on the number of slides viewed.

2. If you need to mark learners as Complete when they finish a quiz (no matter if they pass or fail) and you need to track the interaction data, you could set the quiz passing score to 0% and publish using the Completed/Incomplete reporting setting.

Now, let's tackle the second question. We've created a table that lists the best combinations of LMS standards and reporting options for recording completion statuses in an LMS. Check it out!

Hope that helps, and let us know if those scenarios would work for your goal!
