Test Logs

We only accept self-test logs from version 1.2.7 of the Conformance Test Suite. Check to see that your log header matches the following text:

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL)
Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORMŽ) Version 1.2
Test Suite Version 1.2.7

If the content has successfully passed the Self-Test, you should see the following text (or something similar, depending on the Conformance Level) at the bottom of the log:

   The LMS is SCORM Version 1.2 Run-Time Environment Conformant - Minimum with All Optional Data Model Elements (LMS-RTE3)
   Successful outcome of this test does not constitute ADL Certification unless the test was conducted by an ADL Certified Auditor.
