SCORM Acceptance Criteria


The purpose of the Army Acceptance Criteria for Courseware is to specify quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) procedures that Contractors/Proponent Developers (hereafter referred to as developer) shall use to verify that courseware is SCORM conformat, meets functional testing (playability) requirements, and properly executes the proponent's instructional strategy prior to submission to the Government for technical acceptance testing.

These criteria apply to courseware delivered to the Government under the Combined Arms Products for Distributed Learning contract in support of The Army Distributed Learning Program (TADLP).

These criteria also apply to “in-house” Government developed TADLP courseware.
