Conformance vs Compliance

Posted on May 10 2002 by Mark Oehlert in reponse to Questionmark announce SCORM 1.2 compliance for Perception

While ADL certainly and deeply values the work of companies like Questionmark are doing in support of SCORM, I do feel obliged to point out that no one can be considered "compliant" at this point, since that implies a certification process that is not in place yet. Products can certainly be "conformant" but this is a self-determined status.

ADL thanks all the membrs of industry, academia and government that are working with us to create the learning environment of the future.
