Possible major bug found when restarting incomplete course
by Jason Wilson - Thursday, 15 July 2021, 12:18 AM
 

Hi guys, we've discovered a potential major bug that has appeared presumably after the last code update.

It seems if you upload a course built using the latest Adapt Author Tool build, and then close it before getting to the quiz, when you reopen the course the bookmarking does not work, trickle has reset all the pages to unviewed (using sequential lock), and the quiz is set to complete. If you then go into the quiz, you can answer the questions but the pass/fail response will not display and is not passed on to the LMS).

Steps to recreate

  1. in Adapt Author Tool (0.10.5, Framework 5.15.2), publish course
  2. Upload course to LMS
  3. Open course in LMS and navigate partially through course
  4. Close course before getting to quiz/assessment and then reopen in LMS
  5. Course pages have been reset to not viewed, and quiz has been set to viewed (although the progress bar is still greyed out).

I've tested this in both our LMS (Sumtotal) and Scormcloud with the same results.

I've also tested a couple of different courses, to ensure it wasn't just one. All have the same issue.

In case it is something specific to our courses, I've attached one of our course templates for you to check.

Sorry, forgot to mention that if you do click the bookmark button to resume where you left off, you get duplicate content on the front page (see screenshot below).

Could you update trickle and try again?

Hi Oliver, I updated to trickle version 5.1.1, but the issue is still there.

I mentioned trickle when talking about the sequential lock, but now realise I may have not said the correct thing (unless trickle does in fact control the sequential lock)?

Thanks for looking into this - we currently have 2 courses that we recently updated and now have to manually pass anyone within the LMS who tries to complete them.

No worries. I can't have a proper look until Monday, but I will endeavour to get back to you about it.

As far as I can tell at a quick glance, everything else seems fine. Let me know if you have any luck in the meantime.

Hi Oliver, any update on this issue? We have a few courses that need updating and am loath to do anything until this is fixed.

If you need any more info, please do not hesitate to ask! :)

I need the source for the project not just the build output.

Hi Oliver, no problem - I've attached the source zip file.

Thanks again for your help on this issue!

Hi Jason,

It's a conflict between spoor and trickle.

I'll post some prs and get back to you.

Here is the issue: adaptlearning/adapt_framework#3204

Could you try your course with the changes to trickle and spoor from these two pull requests please?

https://github.com/adaptlearning/adapt-contrib-trickle/pull/122

https://github.com/adaptlearning/adapt-contrib-spoor/pull/218

Hi Oliver - all appears to be working correctly now. Great work - thanks! :)

 

Edit: I've just re-imported some older courses that apparently had this issue, and the fix does not seem to be applying to them. I'll do some more testing and get back to you later today. I'm presuming a "force rebuild" should apply any new plugin updates to courses?

Hi Oliver, I believe the issue is now fixed.

Adapt wouldn't allow me to update Trickle, as it was still the same version as the previous one, so I manually placed the file in the Trickle folder, and all looks to be good now (fingers crossed!).

Thanks again for your help on this.

Cool. Those prs are accepted but they haven't been released yet.
