Urgent Help Needed with ADL Test Suite

Oct 27, 2015

I need some help from anyone out there who has used Storyline on government contracts. Specifically, the U.S. Army. Passing SCORM testing is not an issue. Getting through the ATSC ADL Test Suite is another matter. I am publishing to SCORM 2004, 3rd edition and receive the following:

When using the LogParser.jar in the final part of testing, our course generates the below errors.
The courses do bookmark and set success status properly on ALMS.

NO cmi.success_status • Times Written: 0
◦Last Value Written:
•Times Retrieved: 2
◦Last Value Retrieved: unknown

•Army Mandatory error: cmi.success_status is not invoked via SetValue() minimum number of times (1)

NO cmi.location • Times Written: 0
◦Last Value Written:
•Times Retrieved: 0
◦Last Value Retrieved:

•Army Mandatory error: cmi.location is not invoked via SetValue() minimum number of times (1)

 If you have gone through this exercise, please get back to me.

Hi, Phillip -- While I am not equipped to assist you with your question specifically, I wanted to let you know that if you would like to broaden the base of exposure for your query, you would also be welcome to post over in the Building Better Courses forum. Hopefully someone in the community will have the type of experience needed to assist you with the issue you are having.

I am running into the exact same issue. I have been told that the cmi.location error is an acceptable and know issue with running Stroyline through the ATSC test gauntlet. The cmi.success.status is another issue that I am currently trying to work out. Have you had any success with figuring this one out? I have been everywhere trying to solve this. Thanks for any insight you may have.
