Storyline 2 Completed/Passed result

Sep 29, 2014

I have a Storyline 2 module built, the publish settings are set to 'Completed/Incomplete', yet when the module is completed it is giving me a result of 'passed'.

After going through this several times on a desktop browser and an iPad, I'm tearing my hair out trying to work out why it is pushing the wrong status. I had a quick look through the .js files built with the Storyline publish. I updated the SCORMFunctions.js as shown below.

On retesting the module, it is now showing as completed.

Why is this? Does Storyline 2 not push the correct status to the LMS? Is it a known bug?


Edit: This is with SCORM 1.2.

Thanks so much for the response. Yes I understand that there is a solution.

My question was will this work if you edit the SCORM2004Function.js file the same way editing the SCORMFunction.js file does.
OR do you always have to edit just the SCORMFunction.js file?

Hope this helps clarify.

Hi Christine!

I will reach out to the team to inquire about your question and see if I can get an answer.

We don't support the modification of published output, so this is not something I'm super savvy at. I know I've never edited the SCORM 2004 file, but I don't publish in that format very often either.

Please note that replying to the forums via e-mail attaches your signature. You are welcome to pop in and edit if needed.

Hi Christine!

Just a follow-up. That specific documentation named the SCORMFunctions.js because the bug identified was only for SCORM 1.2.

If documentation was needed and it related to SCORM 2004, then that would be included.

If you are asking an 'in general' question about updating this file, then I imagine yes, but this is not something that we support.

Again, if you are having an issue related to what you have seen in this post, the fix is to install the latest update as it was corrected in Update 5.

Maybe this is helpful. We created two Javascript scripts for sending the completion state to the LMS. We based our code on the SCORM2004functions.js and SCORMfunctions.js files:

It depends on which version of Storyline you are using. If you use the latest version, Storyline 360, then you might try the following Javascript code:

SCORM 1.2:

//get LMS API
var lmsAPI = parent;
//set score; the first number is the score
lmsAPI.SetScore(90, 100, 0);
//set status; possible values: "completed","incomplete", "failed", "passed"
//set status; possible values: "completed","passed", "icomplete", "failed"
SCORM_CallLMSSetValue("cmi.core.lesson_status", "complete");

SCORM 2004:

//get LMS API
var lmsAPI = parent;
//set score; the first number is the score
lmsAPI.SetScore(90, 100, 0);
//set status; possible values: "completed","incomplete", "failed", "passed"
SCORM2004_CallSetValue("cmi.completion_status", "completed");
SCORM2004_CallSetValue("cmi.success_status", "passed");

I've tested both script on SCORM Cloud and they are working as expected.

Hi Bastiaan,

Thank you for sharing this script, but I am unable to get it to work. Short story shorter... I have a branching file and am trying to manually set completion at the end of each branch.

I'm running Storyline 3 (Update 4) and from reading a number of other posts, it appears update 3 (specifically the backwards compatibility patch for SL360 files) may have rendered this script invalid.

I'm using your SCORM 1.2 script. I have corrected the typo in the last argument "complete" - changed to "completed".

Have you experienced this? Do you have an updated script? Any suggestions?

Any help would be appreciated.
