Go to the "Data Tracking Properties" and take a look at the settings there.
Tracking: Make sure you have the appropriate SCORM settings selected (either 1.2 or 1.3, also known as SCORM 2004)
Course Completion Status: Select "Completed."
Use Page Complete: (optional) Check this box if you want your learners to visit and complete each page in addition to passing the quiz. You can leave it unchecked if you don't need them to complete each page.
