Employing Info that is xAPI to view Assessment results — Use Case


Included in this development and introduction of xAPI into a large organisation, it may always be a challenge to provide the benefits. I’d like to share with you how I used xAPI using Articulate Storyline 360, printed as SCORM and being sent through a Learning Management System (LMS).

To summarise, a department needed to have the ability to catch the responses selected in evaluations being delivered online. The evaluations were upgraded from Lectora to Storyline. Lectora had the capacity to send the results of an assessment. With the organisation this was not a part of Storyline.

I had been involved in a pilot program to introduce xAPI (and other learning technology ) and could observe how xAPI could be used to capture this information.

I used the Javascript library that’s clarified in this post My LMS Supports SCORM do I use xAPI. This was the simple part. I added a Trigger for each time a query was answered. This also populated this statement’s results component.

With the information I needed a way to display the information in a way that was meaningful. Together with the builtin reports were not quite what we wanted.

With some study and lots of playing, I finally used some Javascript to pull data and display the results. Adding some CSS to show what the learner wrong and got right, along with filtering of the results ended up. The item sits. Instructors and coaches can review the results (in almost real time by refreshing) and publish the results if necessary.

The first part of page was supposed to access the Tasks. This was by far the part as I couldn’t find xAPI Wrapper can pull up each class distinctively. I settled for using the Launched verb as I had control over what went as far as Statements. This is only used once in the course. I could use the activityID to pull on the students, After I had this. From there, it was a process leave the output and to pull all of the information for that student.

Below is a movie of the item, whilst I’m not able to split the code. It’s proven to be a tool and also a great selling point to acquire xAPI setup with in a huge organisation.
