xAPI Out of the Box

When authoring content with dominKnow | ONE, a large number of features will automatically generate xAPI statements.  All you need to do is author the content!

The following items will auto generate xAPI statements:

  • Page Access
  • Course Completion Status and Scores
  • Learning Object status
  • Module Status
  • Test Question Details
  • Practice Questions

The following will auto generate xAPI statments, but can be configured to be turned on or off in your publishing profile settings:

  • Learner Search information
  • Player Controls (next, back, etc.)
  • Menu/Outline access
  • Attached/linked resource access
  • Glossary term access
  • Reference/citations access
  • Drag and Drop actions
  • Actions (click/double click/mouseover, etc.)
  • Media (play, pause, complete)
  • Components (Tabs, flip cards, carousels, etc.)
  • Include Scenario Statements


Statment data can also be configured to:

  • Be anonymous
  • Include Browser information

Labeling and Good Data

When taking advantage of automatic statements, you only have to author, but it is good practice to label items.

For individual elements this means changing the default label to something meaningful to you.  Learners won't see this information, but it will be included with the statement. 

To change, select the element on the stage and in the black bar: breadcumb trail click on the default name, and change it to the desired name. 

Hint: Click on the element in the bar and then press CTRL-A or CMD-A to select all and then just start typing.



When labeling individual pages, modules or learning objects, select the item and the properties button, then adjust the Title and/or Description information.


Creating Custom Statements

So you're ready to start creating your own custom statements... or are you?

When creating a custom statement with dominKnow | ONE, you don't need to utilize any programming or JavaScript. Just use the same action/trigger process you have for any other actions.

However, there are some things to think about:

  • You need to have an understanding of Verbs and how they are used. We provided the approved ADL and Tin Can Verbs currently.
  • You need to have an understanding of Types and how they are used. We provided the approved ADL and Tin Can Verbs currently.
  • You need to understand how to create a proper Activity ID.
  • Having a basic understanding of the anatomy of an xAPI statement is helpful in picking these items and putting in the right information for your custom statement.

Now don't worry, you can just pick any Verb, Type and use a well formed URI for the Activity ID and it will work, but having a better understanding of these items will lead to better results.

Here are some useful readings on those topics:

Now that you've got that done, here is a tutorial that shows you how easy it is to add that custom xAPI statement.
