SNAP: Activities & Resources: SCORM Package Settings

A SCORM package is a collection of files which are packaged according to an agreed standard for learning objects. The SCORM activity module enables SCORM or AICC packages to be uploaded as a zip file and added to a course. For instructions on adding a SCORM package, see SNAP: Activities & Resources: Add SCORM Package.


SCORM Package Settings

In the General settings, the instructor can designate a title and provide a description what the SCORM package includes.

Package Settings:

Instructors can either drag and drop the SCORM file into the box, or use the file picker to add a new file. The auto-update frequency can be set to Never, Every day, or Every time it's used. (This sets the download and reupload frequency.)

Appearance Settings:

Instructors can customize the appearance of the SCORM contents in this section. The package can either be displayed in the current window or a new window. Instructors can set the dimensions of the window, set options about displaying menu bars and whether students can scroll, display preview mode, where navigation is located, etc. Further customization can be done by clicking on 'Show more' at the bottom.

Grade Settings:

The grading method defines how the grade for a single attempt of the activity is determined. There are 4 grading methods:

  • Learning objects - The number of completed/passed learning objects

  • Highest grade - The highest score obtained in all passed learning objects

  • Average grade - The mean of all the scores

  • Sum grade - The sum of all the scores

The maximum grade can be any whole number between 0-100.

Attempts Management Settings:

Instructors can specify the number of times a student can attempt a SCORM package. If it is set to more than 1, instructors also need to select how Moodle will grade the attempts. Instructors can also choose to force a new attempt and lock after the final attempt.

Compatibility Settings:

The Compatibility settings include the following options:

  • Force completed: If enabled, the status of the current attempt is forced to "completed". (Only applicable to SCORM 1.2 packages.)

  • Auto-continue: If enabled, subsequent learning objects are launched automatically, otherwise the Continue button must be used.

  • Auto-commit: If enabled, SCORM data is automatically saved to the database. Useful for SCORM objects which do not save their data regularly.

  • Mastery score overrides status: If enabled and a mastery score is provided, when LMSFinish is called and a raw score has been set, status will be recalculated using the raw score and mastery score and any status provided by the SCORM (including "incomplete") will be overridden.

Common Module Settings:

Restrict Access Settings:

The activity can be restricted based upon a date, group, activity completion of another activity/resource in the course, etc.

NOTE: If more than one restriction is added, students must meet EACH of the requirements before the activity becomes available.

Activity Completion Settings:

By default, students can manually mark the SCORM activity as complete, but an instructor can change this to be required. If required, the students can be marked complete by viewing the activity, receiving a grade, making a minimum score, or getting a passed/completed status.
