SCO ID and Articulate Storyline -- SCORM 2004 3rd Edition

Hi there, I'm working with Cornerstone to check if the course I've developed for my end user will give them the necessary access to reporting/tracking/assessment reports.  One issue that keeps coming is an "SCO" ID.

I've been told that I need to program an SCO id on each slide in order to capture results. How do I do this? I'm not seeing any information on my publish settings to create an SCO ID.  A SCORM specialist that I've been conversing with is also drawing a blank.  Please advise!

1) Is this something that I need to do on my end as a developer? If so, how do I create this? or

2) Is it something that Cornerstone needs to manage? If so, how?

Hi Valeria!

The best way to identify if the issue lies within a course or your LMS is to test in SCORM Cloud. If you are unable to replicate the behavior, you would need to look to your LMS for assistance.

This article describes the quiz data that Articulate Storyline communicates to learning management systems (LMSs) for SCORM and AICC content.

As far as direction for Cornerstone, if needed, hopefully someone from the community will be able to chime in and assist as well.

To me that doesn't make sense that you would have a separate SCO id for every slide. Storyline sets up a single SCO id for each published storyline file. A SCO (Sharable Content Object) is equivalent to a single storyline file.

 Look in the imsmanifest.xml file that is in the published folder of your course and you will see references to the SCO ID. You set this ID when you choose Publish > LMS > Reporting and Tracking... 

In SCORM a "Lesson" is a SCO. A "Course" can contain multiple SCOs, but Storyline always only creates one lesson (SCO) per course.
