Creating an Articulate Storyline Presentation or Quizmaker Quiz Scorm Package to be added Blackboard Learn.

 


Part 01: Setting the options in Articulate and Publishing the SCORM Package.

 

01: Open the Articulate Presentation
02: Navigate to the quiz and click Edit in Quizmaker
03: Click on the Quiz Properties.

 

Optionally set the Passing Score for the quiz. When a passing score is set above 0% the SCORM attempt will remain in progress until the student reaches the required passing score.

 

If the Passing score is set to 0% and the single attempt option is selected the students will only be allowed a single attempt whether they pass or fail. The results of this attempt will be recorded in the Grade Centre

 

If the Passing score is set to 0% and a Multiple attempt option is selected the students will be allowed multiple attempts whether they pass or fail. Each one of these attempts will be recorded separately in the Grade Centre.

 

If the Passing score is set above 0% and the single attempt option is selected in Blackboard Learn the package will be considered 'In Progress' until the student reaches the required passing score. Students will be allowed to attempt the package multiple times and will the package will only be considered completed when the student achieves the passing score. Once this happens that will be considered as a single (completed) attempt in learn. The results of the completed attempt will be recorded in the Grade Centre.

 

If the Passing score is set above 0% and a Multiple attempt option is selected in Blackboard Learn the package will be considered 'In Progress' until the student reaches the required passing score. Students will be allowed to attempt the package multiple times and will the first attempt will only be considered completed when the student achieves the passing score. Once this happens that will be considered as a single (completed) attempt in learn. The results of the completed attempt will be recorded in the Grade Centre. The next time the package is launched a second attempt in the Grade Centre will be created.

 

The correct setting of the passing score percentage is critical in achieving the desired result in the Blackboard Learn Grade Centre.

 

If in doubt set it to 0% so the options in Blackboard Learn can better control the recording of the results.

05: Click on the Publish option.
06: Click the LMS option in the left tabs.
07: Under Output Options Set SCORM 2004
