Applies to the following Perception versions:

By default, some example PIP files come packaged with Questionmark.

For Perception users, these files can by default be found in C:\Program Files\Questionmark\server\pip\examples.

For OnDemand and OnPremise users, these files can be found in Authoring > Resources > PIP.

OnDemand/OnPremise/Perception 5.7

In OnDemand, OnPremise, and Perception 5.7, qmwise.pip and sps.pip are the ONLY PIP files included by default. If you want to create a Content Package to launch an assessment from an LMS through AICC, SCORM 1.2, or SCORM 2004:

  • OnDemand and OnPremise users will need to download and upload the relevant PIP file in Authoring > Resources > PIP,
  • and Perception users will need to upload it via Resource Manager (Authoring | Resource Manager | PIP).

AICC and SCORM assessments launched without the appropriate PIP files will fail. You can download these PIP files, as well as perception.pip and qs.pip, below (right-click and save as):

Perception 5.4

In Perception 5.4, the following example PIP files are installed by default:
