Exit Button and Test Scores

Has anyone else been having trouble with Lectora exit buttons and recording scores in their LMS? When I test my title in Lectora it works fine but when I upload to the LMS (SuccessFactors) it doesn't function the same:
  • My exit buttons no longer work
  • My test questions aren't processing, resulting in a score of 0% even if I answer them all correctly
  • My course is not marking as complete.
Can anyone offer some guidance on this?

Thanks!

    Hi Traci - There are a few things that may come into play in this scenario, so this might be a good checklist to use to verify things are setup correctly.
    • Is the test part of Assignable Unit (AU)? If not, the course may not correctly report values to the LMS.
    • On the test Result option, is "Include test score in overall score" check marked?
    • Check the button called "Done" on the Last Test Page. When you first create a test, the only action by default is "Process Test". Make sure that somewhere in the course the AICC_Score and AICC_Lesson_Status are set.
    • I recommend using an onShow action at the page level of the page AFTER the last test page. Using a button to set the variables can sometimes be problematic. I've found that setting them as an action on the Exit/Close Course button can be problematic, so I set them as onShow for the page.
    • When publishing to SCORM, is "The published course will report Test/Survey Question Interaction to the LMS" checked?
    Those are some of the things I use as a checklist when publishing my courses. Why the exit/close course button wouldn't work on the LMS may be unrelated, but could also be affected by the order of actions on the button.

    Thanks for the reply, Jason.
    • The test is part of an Assignable Unit
    • "Include test score in overall score" is checked
    • I have included AICC_Lesson_Score, but have never included AICC_Score before.  Do both need to be present and where would AICC_Score go?
    • "The published course will report Test/Survey Question Interaction to the LMS" is checked.
    It all seems very odd as the exit button no longer works to close out the course either.  Any other suggestions?

    For the Exit Course button, try deleting and re-adding the action on the button to close the course - When I run into odd behavior on a button, this is what I'll do and that fixes it. No idea why, but hey, it works.

    Both the AICC_Lesson_Status and AICC_Score should be set before closing the course. I've attached a quick sample that shows how/when I set those variables. Lectora records the test score as "test_name_score", but does not set the AICC_Score on its own.

    Hopefully this helps!
