    Saba 5.5, Scorm 1.2, Quiz preferences

    mikemellor11 Level 1

      I've been struggling to get the correct behaviour from the saba LMS all day. Could someone help me set my quiz preferences correctly please


      Desired behaviour


      • User can attempt the quiz multiple times during that lesson
      • If the user leaves the lesson and then enters it again, it should count as the second attempt
      • The user should be able to do this an infinite amount of times until they pass the quiz ( all should be tracked as seperate attempts )
      • Only when the quiz is passed should the completion status on the module be set to successful


      Here are screen shots of our current settings;

          Your settings looks apt for your requirement.


          You may try changing the Template to "SendTackingDataAtEnd" (on First Screenshot)


          Also upload your course on http://cloud.scorm.com, register yourself (it's free)


          verify and compare your results.

            Your requirements are how I create content for saba lms here is what I do differently - Status would need to be set as complete /incomplete not pass/fail. Quiz score would need to be set as Points not Percent. Your quiz points would need to total exactly 100 points for all questions combined (not 230). On the 3rd screen, for required, Change the dropdown from Optional to Pass Required. You will need to enable the retake button. I would suggested removing the option that allows learner to review the quiz, this tends to confuse learners and they think the course has frozen on them as they can't answer the question in that state. I hope you find this helpful.

              Oh and then once you publish the file go into the imsmanifest.xml file and remove the 1 line of code for the mastery score before you upload the file to the lms. Set your Mastery score in the lms offering and make sure your SCORM scoring communication is selected in the inventory item of the repository. .

                Hi all


                We ended up using a combination of things. We did indeed need to change the status from pass/fail to incomplete/complete, we also enabled the retake button.


                I agree with khoffe about the review button but our client wanted to keep it so we left it in.


                The mastery score was not an issue as captivate 6 doesn't seem to add this to the manifest file.


                We also had to delve ever so slightly into the javascript files that captivate produces, we had to open the scormdriver.js and change




                This seems to give us the functionailty we require. Thanks for you help.

                  Mike I have found if we dont have 100 points even and the other settings above when the learner attempts the course and takes the quiz once and exits after completing the quiz without passing the system will through an unsuccessful then as well. I use these settings I recommended so that learners don't receive an unsuccessful at anypoint, The course stays not evaluated until they successfully pass the course no matter how many attempts they need. to do it.


                  Your right on the Mastery Score in the imsmanifest when I read the header of this topic I was thinking CP 5.5 not Saba 5.5. That line does not apply to CP6.


                  Glad this was helpful.

                    Just a quick query here on something you mentioned about SABA.  You said that you had to set it to calculate success based on POINTS and not PERCENTAGE.


                    Did you find that SABA failed to record success if you used percentage even when the user achieved a passing score?
