Publishing Profile: What are the options I can choose when publishing or exporting a course?

When publishing you can select a Publishing Profile or click the "..." button next to the publishing profiles select box to manage your profiles.

Once you associate a Publishing Profile with a course, Claro remembers it the next time you publish the course. The Publishing Profile lets you set the Test, Navigation, and Behavior Options for the course package.

The following are the details and options you can set in the Publishing Profiles manager:

Options 

Test Options:    

  • Require Pass Mark for Modules: Check to require the minimum mark needed for the student to pass each module.  If this box is selected, learners will not achieve a completion status for the course until they achieve the module’s specific score. This is the score you set from the module properties. If you didn't set a score, the course pass mark will be used by default.
  • Display Passing Score/Status on Endscreens: Selected by default to display the passing score and completion status on the module and course endscreens.
  • Display Module Test Summary: Select to show learners a list of objectives in the assessment they completed along with the score and ability to jump to the objective.
  • Immediately Display Question Feedback: Select to allow the student to see question feedback immediately after the test question is submitted.
  • Enable Forward Button: Selecting this option will enable the Forward button during testing, allowing the user to skip, and/or return to, questions prior to test completion.
  • Score Can Only Improve: Selecting this option will prevent the LMS from recording a score lower than any recorded from previous sessions. This option only applies to the final score achieved during a single session (a session ends upon course exit) and does not apply to retesting scores within a single session.
    Ex: Sally completes her testing in two sessions. In session one, her final test score is 85%, in session two she takes a re-test and scores a 90%, she tests again, trying for a perfect score, but gets an 80% and then exits the course. Her final score for session two is 80%. Since this is lower than her score of 85% from her previous session, the new score will not be recorded in the LMS. Sally's score remains 85%.
  • Partial Scoring: Selected by default. Applicable to questions with more than one correct answer. If deselected, a learner will be required to answer every aspect of the question correctly in order to receive any points. This setting can be overridden for individual questions from the settings area of the Question Properties.
    Ex: A multiple select question where options A, D and E are correct, but the learner selects only A and D. Partial Scoring on will calculate 2/3=66%. Partial Scoring off will return 0%.
  • Follow LO Sequence: Selecting this option allows you to preserve the order of test questions by the learning objects they belong to.

Pre Test: 

  • Allow Pre Test: Select to allow the student to take the test questions at the start of each module. 
    Note: Even if both the pre-test and post-test are taken, only the higher score will be recorded and will count as a single attempt. 
  • Force Pre Test: Select to make the test questions mandatory at the beginning of the module.
  • Pre Test Review: Select to allow the student to review their test results after submission.
  • Display Question Feedback: Select to display the question feedback during the review.
  • Display Correct Answers: Select to display the correct and incorrect answers during the test review.
  • Skip Content If Passed: If pre-test for module is passed, the learner can then skip the content and post-test.

Post Test:

  • Post Test: Selected by default to allow the student to take the test questions at the end of each module.
    Note: Even if both the pre-test and post-test are taken, only the higher score will be recorded and will count as a single attempt.  
  • Allow Retesting: Selected by default to allow the student to take the test more than once. Each new test score will replace the one previous.
  • Additional Attempts: Set to 5 by default. Type a number between 0 and 99 to indicate how many times the student can re-take the test. The student’s mark will be the score of the most recent attempt. 
    Note: If Allow Retesting is checked and 0 is entered here, the number of attempts is unlimited. The number of test attempts left is not displayed in the course.
  • Post Test Review: Selected by default to allow the student to review their test results after submission.
  • Display Question Feedback: Selected by default to display the question feedback during the review.
  • Display Correct Answers: Selected by default to display the correct and incorrect answers during the test review.
 

Content Options:

  • Include Page Transcripts: Select to include page transcripts. The learner can view the Transcripts in the Menu. A Transcript button displays in the navigation bar as well. This option is disabled if the course has no transcripts. 
  • Include Page Notes: Select to include page notes. The learner can view the Notes in the Menu. The option is disabled if the course has no notes. 
  • Display Completion Certificate: Select to display a completion certificate when the learner successfully finishes the learning content and, if applicable, passes the assessment test(s).
  • Include Global Glossaries: Select to include the global (account) glossary terms and definitions with the published course.
  • Include Project Glossaries: Select to include the project glossary terms and definitions with the published course. 
    Note: This option is only applicable if the course is assigned to a Project.
  • Display Bibliography Link: Selected by default to include on the course endscreen a link to the course reference list. 
  • Enable Course Search: Select to include the Search option in the course player menu. Allows learners to enter a search term, preview matches and navigate to their location within the course.
  • Enable Course Search Sequential Filtering: Ensure learners will only be presented Search results for pages previously viewed. Learners will be informed that their results are limited.
  • Remove Web Links: Selecting this option will remove all web links from  the published version of the course.
  • Include Document Output as Resource: This option will include a Document version of the course in the Resources section. A new Document package will be generated as needed.
  • Allow Resource Download: Selected by default to make Resource items available for download by the learner.

Navigation

  • Force Sequential: Select to prevent the student from freely navigating. The student can only move back to visited screens. If deselected, the student can use the Course Menu to jump to any Learning Object in the course.
  • Skip Module Endscreens: Select to hide module endscreens. The module endscreen contains a link to take the test for that module as well as a link to move on to the next module. If module endscreens are skipped, the learner only has the option to take the test from the course endscreen or by using a custom Take Test button (if the course developer added one to a content page using a player controls action).
  • Auto Resume (Bookmark): Default is set to On, allowing students to resume at the beginning of the last visited Learning Object. If Prompt is selected, students can choose to resume where they left off or start at the beginning of the course. If Off is selected, students will have to start at the beginning each time they enter the course. 
  • Enable Swiping on Device: Selected by default to allow learners to use swipe navigation on applicable devices.
  • Enable Page Numbering: Selected by default to display page numbers in the Course Menu.

Behavior

Behavior:

  • Resize Window on Load: Selected by default to allow the player window to resize automatically as the course loads. Deselect this option if a course is loaded inside a frame on a website, for example, or if the entire website window will re-size to the course dimensions.
  • Custom Exit Function: Use this field to change the default action of the Exit button. Generally, this will close the current window. If the course isn’t being launched in its own window, this provides the option to execute a custom javascript function. For example, our web course samples call ‘top.hideModal();’ instead. We also deselect “Resize window on Load”.
  • Warn if Browser is Out of Date: Select to prompt the course player to detect out-of-date browsers and provides a warning message. 
  • Prevent Right-Click: Select to prevent right-clicks so that learners cannot access the context menu. This is useful if you don't want learners to print course pages.
  • Suppress Alt Tags: Select to suppress the alt tags given to media so they do not appear when the learner rolls the mouse over the media.
  • Hide Pages From Menu: Select to hide the page names from the Menu. Only the Learning Object names appear in the Menu.
  • Launch Course in New Window: Use this option if you’re having issues with your content in your LMS using older browsers. This feature does not affect Web packages. For more information, sees LMS Playing Content In Non-Standard Mode.

SCORM Setting:

  • Exit Behavior: In an LMS Standards course you can change the exit button behavior to:
  • SCORM Recommended: The player will try to automatically determine the correct behaviour. Unless you are having issues exiting in your LMS, keep this option.
  • Always Close: window.close() will always be called when exiting.
  • Always Close Top: top.window.close() will always be called when exiting.
  • Always Close Parent: parent.window.close() will always be called when exiting
  • Force Commit Interval: Set to 5000 milliseconds by default. Used to force CommitData back to the LMS at the desired interval (in milliseconds). Set to 0 if you do not want to force a commit time.
    Note: If your LMS is having trouble handling the amount of data/traffic sent by the course, you may need to adjust this number. 
  • Completion Status:  Allows you to control how the course communicates with the LMS.
  • Default
  • Complete/Incomplete
  • Complete/Failed
  • Passed/Failed
  • Passed/Incomplete
  • Completion Criteria: Set requirements for successful completion of your course to:
    • Learning/Testing: Requires that learners both complete the course content and pass the test.
    • Testing Only: Learners are required to pass the test. Content may be skipped.

  • Support High ASCII Characters: URI encodes item interactions for SCORM assessments, ensuring that high ASCII characters are preserved when reporting to the LMS.
