One course : X modules : % to pass each module

Nov 19, 2014

Hi community.

We are thinking of buying the Storyline 2 software. First we are trying it on a client.


The client wants to build a course for SABA. The course contains x modules. At the end of each module, the user must score a 75% to be able to advance to the next module.


Once he passes all modules, he must score 75% on a final questionary in order to complete the course.


We were able to develop the course and works fine on HTML, but when integrated to SABA we get:

"LMSGetValue() finished unsuccessfully

Error: Possible causes:

1. The data model element is not a valid SCORM Runtime Environment data model element.

2. Invalid argument is passed"


SABA installation owner tells us "cmi.core.score.raw" is being sent/rewritten in every module questionary and that there is nothing to be done in Storyline 2, our client can't have more than 1 evaluative questionary per course. 


¿Is this correct?


Thank you for your help.

Hello Matias!

Articulate Storyline lets you track a course either by the number of slides viewed or by a single quiz (result slide). If you need to track on several quizzes, you can try some of the suggestions here. Or you could track the full course on the one final quiz for results.

You may also want to test your course in the SCORM Cloud, the industry standard for testing, to see if you get the same results.

I tried all the alternate solutions that were recommended  to solve the problem mentioned but they didn't work for many reasons, mainly due to compatibility issues with SABA.

The solution I thought of was to change the questions at the end of each module and create different slides for each question; each slide with a question, all the possible answers and one check box per answer. There's also a T/F variable per question that changes state according to the selected checkboxes, if the correct options are shown then the variable is set to true. When the user clicks the next button it either shows a layer stating that the answer is incorrect or it advances to the next slide, depending on the variable. The final quiz wouldn't be changed, it'll still be a draw from question banks.

This would appear to work correctly,, but my problem now is that I'm not using question banks the questions that appear are always the same, and in the same order as in storyline. Mi question is,, is there any way to draw slides randomly? 

Thank you!
