We do not support the SCORM Runtime Environment, since it sends the  
correct solutions to the browser and leaves the evaluation of  
correctness to the browser. I could easily write a script that would  
send back "correct" to the server for all questions.

Depending of what kind of problems these are (are they just multiple  
choice/numerical?), one could write a script that translates these  
into LON-CAPA XML. Also, if that module is available in IMS format, or  
if it can be loaded into some other system and then be exported as  
IMS, it might work.
