Interaction Count - Is it global?

Avatar

Question

When you call for the interactions count is the number returned unique for each user or is it like a global variable that gets incremented by all users?
For instance user 1 and user2 are taking the same exam. Would user1 and user2’s answers cause the interaction counter to increment or would there be separate instances of the counter for each one? I can’t find a reference to this in the scorm documentation.

Answer

When a piece of content requests the interaction count ( GetValue('cmi.interactions._count'); ), the LMS will provide the count of interactions previously recorded for this user in this registration.  

 

To answer this particular question more directly, it is not a global variable.  They are separate counters.

 

This should be the case in any version of the SCORM Engine or any other SCORM conformant LMS.
