SCORM Cloud is a great way to test your course in a "real" LMS, but it doesn't actually prove SCORM conformance. To do that, you need to use ADL's Conformance Test Suite. That will produce logs showing that the course is strictly conformant. To take it a step further, ADL offers formal certification of SCORM products. Formal certification is essentially when you pay a license auditor to run your content through the same test suite.

Thanks for your replies guys. Phil I am with you on this one, we shouldn't really need to do this in my opinion, like you say Articulate is a solid authoring tool. It was a possible request from a client but might not be required.

I tried Scorm Test Cloud and was perfect for testing the course, so thanks.

Thanks again for your help on this.

When it was Scorm test track I was able to use the results to push the lackluster Sumtotal tech support to dig deeper and they finally figured they had missed several thing setting up our LMS.  The contact at Scorm test track was very helpful, not sure if that attitude has transitioned to Scorm Cloud or not.
