SCORM, What passes, when, why and how to us it.

Hi guys

 

Back again with a query that is a little above my current knowledge regarding SCORM. Currently our LMS does not support Tincan, so we are building courses in SCORM 1.2. We have 4 options to pass to the LMS for reporting:

 

Complete/Incomplete

Complete/Failed

Passed/Incomplete

Passed/Failed

 

At the company I work for, we like to keep the learning materials open, so a user can review it until they are happy enough to complete the assessment. Unfortunately once built, course seems to "complete" or "pass" regardless of what option we build with. I thought it was something to do with the fact we are not using any results pages in the courses and worked around it by setting the following options in the SCORMFuctions:

 

var SCORM_PASSED = "passed";
var SCORM_FAILED = "failed";
var SCORM_COMPLETED = "completed";
var SCORM_BROWSED = "browsed";
var SCORM_INCOMPLETE = "incomplete";
var SCORM_NOT_ATTEMPTED = "not attempted";

 

to

 

var SCORM_PASSED = "incomplete";
var SCORM_FAILED = "incomplete";
var SCORM_COMPLETED = "incomplete";
var SCORM_BROWSED = "browsed";
var SCORM_INCOMPLETE = "incomplete";
var SCORM_NOT_ATTEMPTED = "not attempted";

 

A very dirt fix.

 

I was recently asked to find a way to lock out content and only open it once a user had completed the previous module, so I added a mini quiz to pass a result to our LMS and I get the same result, learning materials are locked out, even on a Complete/Incomplete setting. Basically we are looking to force a user to work through all modules before they access the final assessment. I believe our LMS can do this, providing we send over the correct status, I just need the learning materials to stay accessible.

Any help would be fansticcoooo
