Module varies the completion requirments accorfing to the type of learner taking the module

Jan 27, 2015

Hi Articulate community,

I am tasked with creating a module for security. My learners will be organization members who have been newly appointed to a role requiring a security clearance. In which case I will require them to complete the whole of the module.

My second group of learners are annual refresher staff for which I want to give some limited options to choose a topic according to what is relevant for them at the time of the refresher.

So far I have hatched the following plan;

A gateway slide a learner will select a button to identify which group they fit into; New learner or Returning learner.

There are 6 topics in this training and two levels, the first level containing 3 topics is 'need to know' information that all staff should complete. The second level containing 4 topics is ' nice to know' information only occasionally relevant to a learner. I propose to have a learning check slide at the end of each topic linked to a numerical variable which adds one to their score when the topic learning check has been completed.

If a person identifies themselves as a new learner the requirement would be to gain a score of 7 in total having completed all topics in both levels.

A returning learner would require a score of 4 with all 3 topics in level 2 and 1 from level 3 being completed in order to pass.

Can I get some feedback from the community on whether this will work or not or if anyone has a better way of designing this course.

Thanks in anticipation

You may have problems with recording the results, or gaining a 'completed' or 'passed' result, though I am unsure if you are running this on an LMS?

If you are, then you can actually force a completed or passed (or whichever of the options you want) to the LMS using javascript. You can use the following code 


//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"


From the following post to do this manually, though there are other methods as well.

Thank you very much for your reply, I will have a look and see if I can implement this :).
