This documentation addresses how to integrate your Softchalk lesson with quizzes so that quiz scores from the Softchalk quiz will be automatically entered into Blackboard’s Grade Center. We will be using Softchalk’s ScoreCenter option which is integrated into Blackboard. The ScoreCenter functions as a fully enabled SCORM option for testing.
Open your Softchalk Lesson in the Softchalk software.
Go to File > Package Lesson.
Choose the options as seen in the below dialog box.
You will receive the following message.
Do not close the Softchalk software with your lesson. Minimize the screen.
Go to the indicated folder to find the published ScoreCenter zipped file. Eg. DPA2013_scsc.zip.
Go to your Blackboard Course. In the Course Tools section, click the tool Softchalk Publish with ScoreCenter.
The following screen will appear.
Click Submit. You will receive your personal Blackboard Access code. Copy this code to Notepad or any other text-enabled (Word, WordPad, etc.) application. Eg. 1fc92355a3107a0f032fe65271465824675
Now, go back to your Softchalk lesson, and click on File > Publish Lesson.

Click the New button and choose Blackboard as your Account Type. Click OK.
