What is SCORM?

The feature described in this article is a School Exclusive.  It is only available to Schools and Organizations using a private PowerSchool Learning Domain.


Q:  What are SCORM Activities?


A:  SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a technology standard used for creating educational activities and assessments that can be imported for use in PowerSchool Learning.


SCORM gives teachers a way to provide their students with rich, dynamic content, and returns progress and score information.  The possibilities are limitless, and because SCORM supports advanced tools like sequencing, teachers can create content that changes based on students actions.


While there are many places to get SCORM Activities, many publishers include SCORM activities for teachers with their curriculum, and they can also be created using a SCORM authoring tool.  When you import SCORM Activities into your Learning class we display it in a fully integrated SCORM player backed by the solid SCORM Cloud application offered by Rustici software. 


Note: Essay questions do not work with SCORM, even though they may be available with some authoring tools such as SoftChalk. Essay questions can still be included, but you would need to ask students to print the question (there is a print button beneath essay questions with SCORM) in order to evaluate their responses.
