Employing xAPI data to See Assessment Outcomes – Use Case


As part of this development and introduction of xAPI to a big organisation, it may be a struggle. I’d love to share with you the way I utilized xAPI with Articulate Storyline 360, published as SCORM and being delivered via a Learning Management System (LMS).

A department required to have the ability to catch the answers chosen in assessments being delivered on the web to summarise. The assessments were upgraded from Lectora. Lectora had the ability to send the results of an assessment. But with all the organisation this was not part of Storyline.

I was included in a pilot program to present xAPI (and other learning technologies) and could see how xAPI may be utilized to capture this information.

I used the Javascript library that is explained in this article My LMS Only Supports SCORM can I use xAPI. This was the simple part. I included a Trigger for every time there has been a question answered. This populated the outcomes element of this statement that was xAPI.

With the information now captured, I needed a way to show the information in a way that was meaningful. Using the builtin reports weren’t quite what we wanted.

With some study and a great deal of playing, I eventually employed some Javascript to pull on data and display the results. Adding some CSS to show what the student got right and wrong, along with filtering of the results ended up. The item sits. Trainers and tutors can review the outcomes (in virtually real time by refreshing) and print the results if needed.

Page’s very first portion was to access the Tasks. This was by far the part as I could not locate xAPI Wrapper can pull every course distinctively up. I settled with the Launched verb as I had control over what was going as far as Statements. This is only used in the course. Once I had this, I really could use the activityID to pull the students. From that point, it was a procedure to pull the information for that student and leave the outcome.

Below is a video of the last item, whilst I’m not able to split the code. It’s demonstrated to be an easy yet effective tool and also a great selling point to acquire installation with in a large business.
