Mark course Complete in LMS by passing Quiz, not actually taking the course

Client has a course that includes Books, Book Pages, Simulations and a Quiz. The client wants to mark the course as Complete in their LMS if the user passes the Quiz - even if they skip all the course content.

What would be the best way to do this?

* All the Books have been set to not track completion (uncheck Track Completion of Book)

* The only KB I found was this one

* LMS is not SFSF LMS

* SCORM is 2004 4th Edition

    Hi Robert,

    I'm assuming that the Quiz is in the form of a Quiz object and not quiz questions embedded into book pages. Assuming that the course(s) link to Quizzes, you could check:

    1. The book page linking to the quiz should link to the Test mode of the Simulation and all other modes of the Quiz should be hidden

    2. The SCORM Settings on the Test mode of Simulations should be set to track Results and Progress - Incomplete when Fail

    3. The Quiz Evaluation object should define passing mark and also specify to Send Tracking Completion

    I note that you mentioned that book pages are not being tracked, which is correct, so hopefully the setting above will get you the outcome you require. There is other information on tracking issues with SCORM on the home page of the Community (https://community.sap.com/topics/enable-now).

    Regards

    • Hi Shane Lipke -

      A quick clarification:

      In step one above it says: "1. The book page linking to the quiz should link to the Test mode of the Simulation and all other modes of the Quiz should be hidden"

      .

      Should the client use a Simulation (blue icon) or a Quiz (green icon) to set this up?

      .

      I know the very first line says "Quiz object", but I just want to be absolutely clear, so as to not leave any stone unturned.

      Thank you again for your help!

      - Robert

    This kind of depends on the LMS, I think. When I structure courses this way (to allow users to 'test out' of a course), I create the course content as one learning object (SCORM package) and the quiz as a separate learning object (separate SCORM package) then load both SCORM packages into the LMS, group them as a Course/Module (depending on what the LMS calls it) and set the Quiz as 'required for completion' but not the content. Again, depends on the LMS, but I believe you'd need to have separate SCORM packages. I'm not aware of a setting in SAP Enable Now to say "track completion of Group X based on only completion of component Y within it".

    • Hi Dirk,

      Thank you very much for your comment!

      We had already tried separate SCORM packages as a temporary workaround. It works for the Quiz, as it is being marked as complete. However, the main courses are still not being marked complete (and it becomes an issue for them because the courses are not dropping off from the end users' LMS to-do list).

      This may be a limitation on the part of their LMS. But also, I think your last sentence really sums it up well: there is no switch to just make this happen.

      I'm also double-checking all of Shane Lipke 's thorough recommendations in the setup.

      I'll let you all know if we're able to pull this off.

      Thanks again!

    Hi Robert,

    Use the Green Quiz icon and link to the Test mode of that object.
