Sequencing Control Modes[clusters and leafs]Allow the content developer to affect how navigation requests are applied to a cluster and how the cluster’s activities are considered while processing sequencing requests.Determine what type of navigation is allowed by the user. Usually whether free navigation via a table of contents is used or whether linear navigation via previous/next buttons is used.
Sequencing Control Choice[clusters only, boolean:TRUE]Indicates that a Choice navigation request is permitted (True or False) to target the children of the activity.Enable the table of contents for navigating among this activity’s children.
Sequencing Control Choice Exit[clusters and leafs, boolean:TRUE]Indicates whether the activity is permitted to terminate (True or False) if a Choice navigation request is processed.Can the learner jump out of this activity using a choice request?
Sequencing Control Flow[clusters only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates the Flow Subprocess may be applied (True or False) to the children of this activity.Enable previous and next buttons for navigating among this activity’s children.
Sequencing Control ForwardOnly[clusters only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that backward targets (in terms of Activity Tree traversal) are not permitted (True or False) from the children of this activity.Restricts the user to only moving forward through the children of this activity. Previous requests and using the table of contents go backwards is prohibited.
Use Current Attempt Objective Information[clusters only, boolean:TRUE]Indicates that the Objective Progress Information for the children of the activity will only be used (True or False) in rollup if that information was recorded during the current attempt on the activity.If false, then satisfaction information from prior attempts on this activity can contribute to the rollup of status to this activity’s parent.
Use Current Attempt Progress Information[clusters only, boolean:TRUE]Indicates that the Attempt Progress Information for the children of the activityIf false, then completion information from prior attempts on this activity can contribute to the rollup of status to this activity’s parent.
Constrain Choice Controls[clusters only]ADL has defined a set of Constrained Choice Controls that place further conditions and behaviors on how Choice sequencing requests are processed.Restrict the activities that the user may select from the table of contents.
Constrain Choice[clusters only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that a Choice sequencing request should only allow activities that are logically next in a “flow” from the activity to be identified for delivery.Table of content navigation is only allowed to target the “next” activity. The learner can’t freely jump around with the table of contents.
Prevent Activation[clusters only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that a Choice sequencing request should only allow descendents of the activity to be identified for delivery, if the activity is already active.Prevents “deep jumping” into this activity. The learner can’t select an arbitrary child activity, the learner must enter the parent activity and flow into its children.
Sequencing Rules[clusters and leafs]A set of zero or more Sequencing Rules can be applied to an activity and the rules are evaluated at specified times during various sequencing behaviors. Each Sequencing Rule consists of a set of conditions and a corresponding action. The conditions are evaluated using tracking information associated with the activity. The behavior associated with the rule’s action is performed if the rule’s condition-set evaluates to True.Specify if-then conditions that determine which activities are available for delivery and which activity should be delivered next.
Sequening Rule Conditions[clusters and leafs]The Rule Conditions element contains a set of conditions that are evaluated in the context of the activity for which the Sequencing Rule is defined.The “if” part of the sequencing rule. Conditions can be logically grouped (“and-ed” or “or-ed” together) using the condition combination operator.
Satisfied[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Progress Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by the Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True and the Objective Satisfied Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by the Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True.Is the activity or referenced objective satisfied?
Objective Status Known[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Progress Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True. Does the activity or referenced objective have a known status?
Objective Measure Known[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Measure Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True.Does the activity or referenced objective had a known measure?
Objective Measure Greater Than[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Measure Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by the Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True and the Objective Normalized Measure for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is greater than the Rule Condition Measure Threshold.Does the activity or referenced objective have a measure that is greater than the “rule condition measure threshold”?
Objective Measure Less Than[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Measure Status for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is True and the Objective Normalized Measure for the objective associated with the activity (indicated by Rule Condition Referenced Objective) is less than the Rule Condition Measure Threshold.Does the activity or referenced objective have a measure that is less than the “rule condition measure threshold”?
Completed[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Attempt Progress Status for the activity is True and the Attempt Completion Status for the activity is True.Is the activity completed?
Activity Progress Known[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if the Activity Progress Status for the activity is True and the Attempt Progress Status for the activity is True.Does the activity have a known completion status?

Attempt Limit Exceeded[clusters and leafs]The Condition evaluates to True if Activity Progress Status for the activity is True and the Limit Condition Attempt Limit Control for the activity is True and the Activity Attempt Count for the activity is equal to or greater than the Limit Condition Attempt Limit for the activity.Has the activity exceeded its defined attempt limit?
Always[clusters and leafs]The Condition always evaluates to TrueAlways do this action.
Sequencing Rule Operators[clusters and leafs]Operators that modify sequencing rule conditions.
Condition Combination[clusters and leafs, Vocabulary:All]How rule conditions are combined in evaluating the rule. • All – The overall rule condition evaluates to True if and only if all of the individual rule conditions evaluate to True (logical and). • Any – The overall rule condition evaluates to True if and only if any of the individual rule conditions evaluates to True (logical or).Combines rule conditions using logical operators (AND and OR).
Rule Condition Referenced Objective[clusters and leafs, Unique Identifier:None]The identifier of an objective associated with the activity used during the evaluation of the condition. If a rule for an activity does not explicitly reference an objective by identifier, the rule references the objective that contributes to rollup for an activity by default.Allows the rule conditions that refer to satisfaction attributes to reference a specific objective. If omitted, the rules refer to the primary objective. This should point to the local activity objective id, not the global objective id.
Rule Condition Measure Threshold[clusters and leafs, Real [-1.0..1.0] Precision of at least 4 significant decimal digits:0]The value used as a threshold during measure based condition evaluations.When using the objective measure greater or less than condition, this specifies the value to compare the measure against.
Rule Condition Operator[clusters and leafs, Vocabulary:NO-OP]The unary logical operator to be applied to the condition evaluation. • Not – The negated condition evaluation result is used for rule evaluation. • NO-OP – The condition evaluation result is used for rule evaluation.Allows the rule condition to be negated (applies the logical NOT operator).
Sequencing Rule Actions[clusters and leafs]The Rule Action element represents the intended action or behavior that the LMS is responsible for during the various Sequencing Behaviors, when a Sequencing Rule’s condition set is True.The “then” part of the sequencing rule. Defines the action to be performed if the condition evaluates to true. Only one action is allowed per rule. Actions are grouped into 3 categories depending on when (in relation to activity delivery) they are evaluated.
Precondition Actions[clusters and leafs]Apply when traversing the Activity Tree to identify an activity for delivery.Rule actions that are evaluated before content is delivered.
Disabled[clusters and leafs]The activity may not be the target of any sequencing or delivery request.Don’t let the activity be delivered. Prevent both flow and choice requests.
Hidden from Choice[clusters and leafs]The activity may not be the target of a “Choice” sequencing request.Hide the activity from the table of contents. Prevent activation from a choice request.
Stop Forward Traversal[clusters and leafs]The activity will prevent activities following it (in a preorder traversal of the tree) from being considered candidates for delivery.Don’t let the user proceed past this activity.
Post Condition Actions[clusters and leafs]Apply when an attempt on an activity terminates.Rule that are evaluated after an activity is done being delivered.
Exit Parent[clusters and leafs]Process an Exit Parent termination request.Bubble up this exit request to this activity’s parent.
Exit All[clusters and leafs]Process an Exit All termination request and return an Exit sequencing request.Bubble up this exit all the way up to the top of the activity tree.
Retry[clusters and leafs]Return a Retry sequencing request.Don’t exit this activity, instead, make the learner try it again.
Retry All[clusters and leafs]Process an Exit All termination request and return a Start sequencing request.Make the learner start the entire activity tree over again.
Continue[clusters and leafs]Return a Continue sequencing request.Take the learner to the next activity regardless of what the prior navigation request indicated.
Exit Actions[clusters only]Apply after a descendant activity’s attempt terminates.Rules that are evaluated when a post condition on a child results in an exit request on this activity (used to bubble exit requests up the activity tree).
Exit[clusters only]Unconditionally terminate the activity.Exit this activity and bubble up the exit request.
Limit Conditions[clusters and leafs]A content developer can define limit conditions that describe conditions under which an activity is not allowed to be delivered.Provide limits on the number of times activities can be attempted.
Limit Condition Attempt Control[clusters and leafs, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that a limit condition on the number of attempts for the activity has been established (True or False) for the activity. If the value is False, there is no constraint on how many times the activity may be attempted.Indicates that the attempt limit data is valid. Not specified in the manifest, becomes true by the presence of an attempt limit.
Limit Condition Attempt Limit[clusters and leafs, Non Negative Integer:0]The maximum number of attempts for the activity. A zero value indicates the activity may not be accessed. The value is unreliable unless Limit Condition Attempt Control is True.The number of times the learner is allowed to attempt this activity.
Limit Condition Attempt Absolute Duration Control[clusters and leafs, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that a limit condition on the maximum time duration that a learner is permitted to spend on any single attempt on the activity has been established (True or False) for the activity. If the value is False, there is no constraint on how long the learner may spend on the activity.Indicates that the attempt absolute duration limit data is valid. Not specified in the manifest, becomes true by the presence of an attempt absolute duration limit.
Limit Condition Attempt Absolute Duration Limit[clusters and leafs, Duration – Accuracy 0.1 second:0]The maximum time duration that a learner is permitted to spend on any single attempt on the activity. This limit applies to the time the activity is active – from the time the activity begins until the time the activity ends, including any time the activity was suspended. A zero value indicates the activity may not be accessed. The value is unreliable unless Limit Condition Attempt Absolute Duration Control is True.Specifies the maximum amount of time the learner can spend in a given activity. SCORM does not require that this behavior be implemented and any duration-based sequencing is generally not supported.
Rollup Rules[clusters only]Cluster activities are not associated with content objects, therefore there is no direct way for learner progress information to be applied to a cluster activity. A set of zero or more Rollup Rules may be applied to a cluster activity and the rules are evaluated during the Overall Rollup Process. Each Rollup Rule consists of a set of child activities to consider, a set of conditions evaluated against the tracking information of the included child activities, and a corresponding action that sets the cluster’s tracking status information if the set of conditions evaluates to True.Specify if-then conditions that determine how status is rolled up through the hierarchy of aggregations.
Rollup Rule Conditions[clusters only]The Rollup Conditions element contains a set of conditions that are evaluated in the context of each activity included in the evaluation of the Rollup Rule.The “if” part of the rollup rule. Conditions can be logically grouped (“and-ed” or “or-ed” together) using the condition combination operator.
Satisfied[clusters only]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Progress Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the child activity is True and the Objective Satisfied Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the child activity is True. This condition evaluates to true if a child is satisfied.
Objective Status Known[clusters only]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Progress Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the child activity is True.This condition evaluates to true if a child has a known satisfaction status.
Objective Measure Known[clusters only]The Condition evaluates to True if the Objective Measure Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the child activity is True.This condition evaluates to true if a child has a known score.
Activity Progress Known[clusters only]The Condition evaluates to True if the Activity Progress Status for the child activity is True and the Attempt Progress Status for the child activity is True. This condition evaluates to true if a child has a known completion status.
Attempted[clusters only]The Condition evaluates to True if the Activity Progress Status for the child activity is True and Activity Attempt Count for the child activity is positive (i.e., the child activity has been attempted).This condition evaluates to true if a child has been attempted.

Rollup Child Activity Set[clusters only]By default, tracking status information for all children of a cluster is considered in the rollup evaluations of the cluster. A content developer may explicitly restrict how and when an activity should be included during rollup evaluation.Defines which of the activity’s children need to meet the condition(s) for the rollup action to take place.
All[clusters only]The rollup rule evaluates to True if and only if all of the children have a rollup condition (the result of the Condition Combination) value of True.All children must meet the condition(s) for the action to take place.
Any[clusters only]The rollup rule condition evaluates to True if any of the children have a rollup condition (the result of the Condition Combination) value of True. If any child meets the condition(s), the action takes place.
None[clusters only]The rollup rule condition evaluates to True if none of the children have a rollup condition (the result of the Condition Combination) value of True. The action takes place only if no children meet the condition(s).
At Least Count[clusters only]The rollup rule condition evaluates to True if at least the number of children specified by the Rollup Minimum Count attribute have a rollup condition (the result of the Condition Combination) value of True.The action takes place if the number of children meeting the condition(s), exceeds a fixed number.
At Least Percent[clusters only]The rollup rule condition evaluates to True if at least the number of children specified by the Rollup Minimum Count attribute have a rollup condition (the result of the Condition Combination) The action takes place if the percentage of children meeting the condition(s), exceeds a value.
Rollup Rule Actions[clusters only]The Rollup Action element describes the desired action that should be applied to the cluster activity that defines the Rollup Rule.Set the satisfaction or completion status of an activity based on whether or not it meets the rollup conditions. If a satisfaction rule is specified, then any situations that don’t meet that rule will result in unknown satisfaction (the same thing goes for completion). If you are going to use rollup rules, your must specify rollup rules for all scenarios (that you don’t want to result in an unknown status), the default rules will no longer apply. To achieve measure rollup rules, use the objective measure weight.
Satisfied[clusters only]Set the: • Objective Progress Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the activity to True. • Objective Satisfied Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the activity to True. Mark the activity is being satisfied.
Not Satisfied[clusters only]Set the:• Objective Progress Status for the rolled-up objective • Objective Satisfied Status for the rolled-up objective associated with the activity is set to False.Mark the activity as being not satisfied.

Possible values are: always, ifNotSuspended, ifAttempted, and ifNotSkipped.
Objective Description[clusters and leafs]With the introduction of IMS SS into SCORM, there is a mechanism now in place to associate learning objective(s) with an activity. An activity may have one or many learning objectives associated with it.Provide a way to track the status of individual learning objectives and share this status across activities. Objectives are often overloaded and used as variables to control sequencing actions.
Objective ID[clusters and leafs, Unique Identifier:None Required]The identifier of an objective associated with the activity. The ID is a link to the corresponding Objective Progress Information.Provides an identifier for this objective. This ID is what is referenced by sequencing rules.
Objective Satisfied by Measure[clusters and leafs, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that the Objective Minimum Satisfied Normalized Measure is to be used (True or False) in place of any other method to determine if the objective associated with the activity has been satisfied. If true, then this objective’s satisfaction status will be determined by the score’s relation to the passing score. This derived satisfaction status will override what it explicitly set.
Objective Minimum Satisfied Normalized Measure[clusters and leafs, Real [-1..1] Precision of at least 4 significant decimal digits:1]Indicates the minimum satisfaction measure for the objective, normalized between -1..1 (inclusive). If the Objective Measure Status for the objective is True and the Objective Normalized Measure for the objective is equal to or exceeds this value, the Objective Progress Status is set to True and the Objective Satisfied Status is set to True. If the Objective Measure Status for the objective is True and the Objective Normalized Measure for the objective is less than this value, the Objective Progress Status is set to True and the Objective Satisfied Status is set to False. The value is unreliable unless Objective Satisfied by Measure is True.Defines a “passing score” for this objective for use in conjunction with objective satisfied by measure.
Objective Contributes to Rollup[clusters and leafs, Boolean:FALSE]Indicates that the Objective Satisfied Status and Objective Normalized Measure for the objective are used (True or False) during rollup.Indicates that this objective is the primary objective.

How the tracking status information is tracked and recorded is not specified.If false, no data is tracked for this activity.
Completion Set by Content[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates whether the Attempt Completion Status for the activity will be set by the activity’s associated content object.If false, the sequencer will automatically mark the activity as completed if it does not report any completion status.
Objective Set by Content[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]Indicates whether the Objective Satisfied Status for the activity’s associated objective that has the Objective Contributes to Rollup value of True will be set by the activity’s associated content object.If false, the sequencer will automatically mark the activity as satisfied if it does not report any satisfaction status.
Completion Threshold [Introduced in 4th Edition][clusters and leafs]The completion status of an activity may be explicity used (Completed / Incomplete) or a partial measure of progress may be evaluated against a defined threshold.Provide the ability to have completion status derrived from a user’s completion percentage as well as weighted rollup of completion percentage.
Completed By Measure[clusters and leafs, boolean:FALSE]Indicates that the Minimum Progress Measure is to be used (True or False) in place of any other method to determine if the activity has been completed.If true, then this activity’s completion status will be determined by the progress measure’s relation to the minimum progress measure. This derived completion status will override what it explicitly set. (Analagous to Objective Satisfied By Measure)
Minimum Progress Measure[clusters and leafs, Real [0..1] Precision of at least 4 significant decimal digits:1]Indictes the minimum completion amount for the activity, normalized between 0..1 (inclusive). If the Attempt Completion Amount for the activity is defined and it is equal to or exceeds this value, the Attempt Progress Status is set to True and the Attempt Completion Status is set to True. If the Attempt Completion Amount for the objective is less than this value, the Attempt Progress Status is set to True and the Attempt Completion Status is set to False. The value is unreliable unless Attempt Completion Amount is available for the activity. Defines a minimum completion percentage for this activity for use in conjunction with completed by measure. (Analagous to Objective Minimum Satisfied Normalized Measure)
Progress Weight[clusters and leafs, Real [0..1] Precision of at least 4 significant decimal digits:1]A weighting factor applied to the Attempt Completion Amount associated with the activity used during rollup for the parent activity. Assigns a wieght to the completion percentage of this activity in relation to its peers. Can indicate that one activity takes 2 hours to complete vs 1 hour for other activitys. (Analagous to Rollup Objective Measure Weight)
Hide LMS UI Values[leafs only]A content developer can choose to indicate, on a per content object basis, that the content object intends to provide certain UI devices, and further, that the LMS should not provide redundant UI devices for the same navigation events.Indicates which navigational UI elements the LMS should hide when this activity is being delivered.
continue[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger a Continue navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the continue button.
exit[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger an Exit navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the exit button (if present).
exitAll[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger an Exit All navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the exit all button (if present).
abandon[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger an Abandon navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the abandon button (if present).
abandonAll[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger an Abandon All navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the abandon all button (if present).
suspendAll[leafs only, boolean:FALSE]If this token is specified, the LMS should not display an enabled UI device that can trigger a Suspend All navigation event while the associated content object is launched.Remove the suspend all button (if present).
