Questionmark ADL SCORM support
You can call Perception from any management system compatible with the ADL SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 standards using Questionmark's Publish to LMS feature.
The Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), produced by the Advanced Distributed Learning organisation (ADL), allows the sharing of content through the use of a defined data model and runtime environment.
Management systems include learning management systems, course management systems, learning content management systems and virtual learning environments. Throughout this information sheet, the term LMS will stand for all of these.
After setting up SCORM support, you use Questionmark's Publish to LMS feature to make a manifest describing your Perception assessment. You import this into an LMS at the required point in your course.
A participant then logs into an LMS and is given the assessment, usually in a new window that calls the Perception Server. At the end of the assessment, when the participant presses the Home button, the Perception window is closed and results are returned to the LMS.
The LMS and Perception communicate via the browser, which could in theory be compromised by a participant with technical skill. Therefore the SCORM method of calling Perception is not recommended for high stakes assessments.
Question mark is a keen supporter of industry standards. As well as being a SCORM adopter, Question mark also supports IMS Content Packaging, LOM (Learning Object Metadata), IMS QTI and AICC HACP.
Open standards allow people to customise their e-Learning systems by linking the best systems from different vendors and having them all work together. Being able to connect in this way paves the way for a future in which an increasing number of systems will be connected.
