Need to set a SCORE on my LMS without using a Quiz

Apr 27, 2023

Hi all. On the last slide of my course I am setting "Complete course as  Completed/Passed" when the timeline starts.  This works great and shows as "Complete" and "Passed" when running it in SCORM Cloud.  My problem is that I believe the LMS I am dealing with also wants to see a "Score".  My course does not have an official Quiz in it.  How do I show a Score percentage without a Quiz.  I have found posts here where they say make a Freeform page at the end of a course and then redesign the results screen to look like you last slide and so on but when I try this I still get the darn "Submit" button for the fake quiz.  Is there a way to just set a Built-in Variable to 100% or something?  This seems like it should be MUCH easier to do.  Please share any advice you may have.

Hello Russ, 

You'll want to make sure that your "fake" quiz is graded, and that you have a submit results trigger setup for the course to send a score to your LMS. You can check out this article to learn more about completion and success statuses:

If you already have a graded question slide and a Result Slide that submits the score to an LMS, would you be willing to share a copy of your project file here or in private by opening a support case so we can take a closer look at how you setup your course? We'll delete it when we're done testing!

Thanks Joe and Ron,

Glad to report we got it working.  We added a Freeform Question slide and added a hotspot over an image representing our button that takes the user to the last slide. We then made it look like our existing slide ( and turned off the Submit button like you suggested Ron ).  For the Results slide we basically did the same thing by using a Blank results slide and then making it look like our existing last slide. It's a bit of a work around but it works.

It sure seems like it would be possible for SL to add the ability to just set a variable on the last slide of a course to get the same results and not have to do the "fake" thing? 

From everything I have read it sure seems like the  "Completeed/Passed" trigger should have worked for us but apparently the LMS we are working on needs a specific "Score" and not just "Complete" and "Passed".
