Single AU progress tracking

Hi people,

I am trying to track the progress of a SCORM made of only one assignable unit. For example, I have 1 AU with 4 chapters inside and I want when the user finishes the first chapter, the LMS to show me that he/she has seen 25% of the course. Any ideas how can this be achieved? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The easiest way should be to use the score for tracking the progress. Just add an action on the last page of chapter 1:

    On: Show
    Action: Modify variable
    Target: AICC_Score
    Type: Set equal to
    Value: 25

    Add a condition:

    Only if "AICC_Score" "less than" 25

    Add the same actions to the last pages of the other chapters with adjusted values.

    You could also use a custom variable and retain it between sessions. The value would then be saved to the cmi.suspend_data field in the LMS.

    Tim, thank you so much for your help! You have no idea how much you helped me.

    Actually, I thought of using the score for tracking the progress, but I didn't think of using a custom variable (because using AICC_Score will be confusing when I have a quiz in Lectora, I will not be able to know which points come from the quiz, and which points come from the progress.) But with custom variable is perfect!

    Thanks again and have a great day! :)

    You'll only be able to see the value of the custom variable from within your LMS if there is somewhere already there that reads the value of the suspend_data field. Or if you are able to create a report that specifically pulls this information. Additionally, if you are retaining other variables for anything then this particular custom variable will be somewhere in the middle of a long string of values.

    Using the score approach would be easiest/best but as you say this might not be appropriate if/when you include a test.

    Yes, there is a suspend_data field within the LMS we are using. I think custom variable is a great solution, especially if there is a test in Lectora. At least, it's some way of seeing the progress of the learners, since I have been trying to achieve this other than with the score. Otherwise, when there is no test included, AICC_Score could be used for tracking progress.
