I’m developing courses in Lectora Publisher 11 for the Success Factors (Plateau) LMS. Rarely (but once is too many times) a course will exit, apparently normally, with no completion status saved (meaning it stays “incomplete”). Because I don’t have access to a real programming language, I can’t error-check the LMS communication (for instance, by checking the return code on the actual HTML transfer).

Replace ‘cmi.core.lesson_status’ with ‘cmi.completion_status’ and/or ‘cmi.success_status’ for SCORM 2004.June 18, 2015 at 1:02 pm #296562
Thank you, Sergey.
I wish Trivantis documented this sort of thing.June 18, 2015 at 2:18 pm #296572

You should just be able to create an action with an if/else condition that checks the AICC_Lesson_Status variable. It will exit the course if it matches complete/passed/etc and shows a message or some other action if it does not match that status.September 17, 2015 at 2:45 pm #299636
I understand how to check the AICC_Lesson_Status variable we set in lectora, but how would you check if the LMS, TinCan in this case, successfully received the message?
So please, can you post a sample of how this check would communicate from lectora to tincan? Or is there a resource out there that could assist?January 27, 2016 at 3:16 pm #304527
Coming back in months later, but: we have the same issue. Sometimes, randomly, Lectora will fail to communicate the status (pass or fail) back to the LMS. In those cases, it does save the correct score, so it seems to be a one-time thing (each time) as Warren says. I ended up just having the courses send the status update, then before the user exits navigate to a new page that sends it again, which has cut the incidence down from rare to extremely rare, but it does still happen.

Just curious, what action are you using upon Exit? And, what are you checking?
I’m working in Scorm 1.2. I use a simple:
Trigger: Mouse Click
Action: Modify Variable
Type: Set Equal To
Value: completed or incomplete (depending on ‘if’ condition)
Variable Relationship Value
PageInChapter Equals VAR(PagesInChapter)
We just require them to get to the end of the chapter. This is tested maximum times and works consistently.
We are actually working to test if the student “landed” on each page, at the very least, before completion and maybe test if the watched certain videos. But, no issues with Saba LMS.
In fact, if anyone knows if you can test for each page being set to complete as an “end” condition, please let me know!
Hope this helps.
