Using SCORM

Jump to: navigation, search

This page really needs improving. Please see the page comments for suggestions of what to include, then remove this template when you're done.

Like a Moodle course, each SCORM package will vary with the modules used in its construction by the teacher and by the SCORM activity settings established by the teacher.

Using SCORM and responsiveness on smaller screens

At present there are some issues with responsiveness, since Moodle uses iFrames.

There are some work arounds described in this post: https://community.adaptlearning.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=180

The challenge is that browsers (like Safari on iOS), SCORM packages and the LMS (ie in this case Moodle) need to play together well. Catch 22's include "Use the Popup work around and you mess with the Desktop view" and "use the iFrame approach and you strike non-scrolling problems"

SCORM reports

A teacher can access 4 report types for the SCORM activity via the reports tab:

  • Basic report
  • Graph report
  • Interactions report
  • Objectives report (for SCORM packages that use objective reporting)

Note: By default, users with the roles of manager, teacher and non-editing teacher are listed in SCORM reports. To prevent them being listed, edit the roles in Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles and unset the mod/scorm:savetrack capability.

Basic report

The basic report page shows a table of attempts for the SCORM activity. If you have the SCORM activity set up to allow multiple attempts, there may be more than one attempt for some users.

Selected attempts may be deleted by ticking the checkboxes then clicking the 'Delete selected attempts' button.

The basic report may be downloaded in ODS, Excel or text format.

A detailed report of each user's attempts may be obtained by clicking on the number in the attempts column. The track details link provides information on specific SCORM values recorded in Moodle by the SCORM object.

Note that the tracked details depend heavily upon what the SCORM object itself is programmed to report. Many SCORM packages created with authoring suites use the suspend_data field to record important information, instead of the traditional SCORM values. This makes deciphering the recorded data extremely difficult.

Graph report

The graph report displays graphs of percentage obtained against number of participants.

SCORM interactions report

The interactions report shows students' responses to questions together with the correct answers.

SCORM interactions report

New feature
in Moodle 3.1!
The interactions report may be downloaded in ODS, Excel or text format and include responses, right answers and (new in 3.1) results (whether the response to a question was right or wrong).

Objectives report

This report is similar to the interactions report but if a SCORM package is set up to report objectives then this report will display the status and raw.score of any objectives data passed back to Moodle.
