Hi Lauren, 

I'm using an in-house LMS with SCORM2004. If I build a test directly within the LMS (i.e. NOT using a SCORM package) the user only gets one attempt. However, when a user completes my SL3 test in the LMS, the score is sent to the LMS and stored, but the user can then re-open the e-learning, at which point the results from the previous attempt all seem to be reset. They can then complete the e-learning and a second test result is then sent to the LMS. Users just continue repeating the e-learning until they achieve a pass!

I've attached a sample of the project, but I suspect that what I'm seeing is normal, and that I need the LMS changed.

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the updated information and sharing your .story file for us to take a look.

Are the users getting the resume prompt? If so, they have the ability to choose 'No' and start the course over. You may want to set the course to 'Always Resume':

In addition, most learning management systems (LMSs) consider a course to be in review mode after meeting the tracking requirement. In review mode, resume data is no longer sent to the LMS, which prevents learners from accidentally changing their course status from complete back to incomplete. You can read more on how to make these adjustments here:

Course Doesn't Resume as Expected After Meeting the Completion Requirement

@Leslie, we are having a similar issue with Storyline and Absorb LMS. We do not want users to be able to exit and relaunch a quiz after it has been launched once. Absorb does not have a "review mode" option that I'm aware of, but does have a Maximum Attempts option, which we set to 1, but per Absorbs KB: "The Maximum Attempts Absorb LMS Learning Object setting is the number of times a Learner is allowed to launch the e-learning module. This value is independent of the e-learning module rules surrounding attempts to complete the quiz/assessment."

We have the Storyline player set to "Always resume" and Pass/Fail for tracking the quiz, and yet user can quit mid-way thru the test then relaunch it, and it begins at the very beginning of the quiz. 

I'm literally at a loss as to whether the issue is with Storyline settings or the LMS. Any suggestions?

Make sure you have a results slide or end slide WITH NO NAVIGATION BUTTONS after the quiz, and set the quiz up so that slide is automatically navigated to when the last question of the quiz is answered. That now becomes the last slide in the course/quiz, so when a user re-opens the quiz with the "Always resume" settings on, all they see is the last slide and can't navigate away from it. That's what I did.
