Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS).

Experience (Tin Can) API: What to Expect from Your LMS Provider

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. The SCORM API is tested and reliable for tracking of basic information such as course completion, time spent taking a course, completion date, and post-test score. Tin Can. Experience. TIN CAN!

Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Fortunately, the ADL effort wasn’t a total loss.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model and it was developed, and is now managed, by Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) to support the Department of Defense.

SCORM vs. Tin Can (xAPI): which is right for your LMS?

Academy of Mine

Tracking completion of a course. Tracking the time spent in a course. Capturing and reporting on a single course score. Tracking learning outside of the LMS, such as: Simulations. The Developer.

What is Tin Can?

eFront

ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. Both SCORM and Tin Can API allow track completion; track time; track pass/fail; and report a single score. Providers have come to realize that learning experiences happen everywhere (not just in the LMS) and Tin Can adopters want to give their users the ability to easily track these experiences.

5 Ways Tin Can API Revolutionizes eLearning

Bottom-Line Performance

With the Tin Can API, all of these experiences can be tracked and accounted for. ADL commissioned Rustici Software to develop the specification, which looks to supplant SCORM as the go-to eLearning spec of the 2010′s…and then some. We can track more details than ever before.

SCORM vs Tin Can API: The difference between compact discs and iTunes

ProProfs

At some point in the past, eLearning standards were built for facilitating interoperability between content and LMS; now with SCORM and especially Tin Can API, it’s about tracking learning experiences as much as it is about interoperability. Pass/fail and score reports.

Players answer three iterations of the same question while earning points, seeds of knowledge and pearls of wisdom in order to climb the leaderboard and earn a high score. There’s no way to track learner activity in games, so I can’t use it.

Got SCORM?

ICS Learning

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) has the complete specification (all 400+ pages of it) readily available on their site, but I was looking for a quick, “get your hands dirty” explanation that skipped all the mumbo-jumbo and would let me dive in and start trying things out. The SCORM specification, developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL – [link] is a set of rules that learning management systems (LMS) and learning content follow in order to be compatible with each other.

And although SCORM isn’t going away anytime soon, Tin Can has taken the e-learning world by storm, redefining the very fabric of learning experience tracking. It also defines a Runtime Environment so that tracking data can be sent to the LMS.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. SCORM is a fairly easy standard to deal with especially since most people are fine with a single SCO that does only single score/completion reporting. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. In these cases, I'm not tracking and likely it's not under the LMS.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

And we run into the same tough situation each time: If there's an integration issue, like the score or completion is not getting set appropriately, we want to be able to make changes to the course to try to fix it. Here are some ideas - SCORM Test Suite One of the best things about SCORM (ADL's Sharable Content Reference Model) is that it is pretty easy to test and diagnose problems. Rather, it simply allows us to quickly set particular variable values, e.g., test scores.

Is it time to replace SCORM? A Look at Emerging Learning Technologies

Growth Engineering

SCORM won the hearts of L&D folk everywhere, when it was invented by the ADL in 2000. SCORM is no longer up to the job because its ability to track learners’ behaviour, preferences and interests is limited. Limited Tracking Functions.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 2 (M-Z)

Mastery score: Defines the score a learner must achieve to pass a SCORM module. A mastery score isn’t compulsory as some SCORM modules don’t include a quiz and some quizzes don’t require a passing score.

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). A cloud-based LMS is a web-based platform that helps companies to deliver, track, and report on eLearning. The main difference between a cloud LMS and other solutions is that learning content, tracking and reporting data is stored in the cloud.

TinCan Demystified

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. In SCORM 2004, the sequencing is completely dynamic; the sequencing implementation identifies the next activity based on both Tracking Model and Sequencing Definition Model of activities. In fact, the values of Tracking Model are dynamic but the values of Sequencing Definition Model are static. People just want to grab the raw score.

This will typically be ADL SCORM. Masteryscore: This element defines a passing score for the module. If your module includes a quiz, you may have set a passing score – but not every SCORM course includes a quiz and not every quiz has a passing score.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

You can think of an LRS as “the part of the LMS that implements xAPI and that tracks learning activity”. Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. For the Bookmarket, how is the person tracked. Bookmarklets are just one way of tracking self-reported informal learning. Does all content have to be marked as tracked by the user? Is there no automatic tracking? Wellness tracking.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?

Learning Visions

Because (1) LMSs in corporations are primarily used to track stuff (IMHO) so until open source is truly able to slice and dice data (often custom reports) for executives they won't replace commercial LMSs. (2) I'm fairly certain that google analytics could crawl a moodle install and reveal some amazing tracking measurements. I've seen some very impressive uses of google analytics as a measurement/tracking tool for web-based training.
