How to Use Certificates with Your Online Quizzes

The Online Quiz Certificates functionality in Atrixware Weblearning 9 is a major improvement on previous versions in many ways. In this article, I will attempt to cover everything you need to know about them.

Note that you can customize the certificate for each online quiz from the MODULES > PROPERTIES > ADVANCED SETTINGS tab. Each online quiz can have its own certificate content and layout (this is true for the BASIC, PRO and ENETRPRISE plans).

When a student completes an online quiz, a certificate is generated and is then stored in electronic format in to the database. There are various ways to ‘get to’ that certificate. There are ways you (as the administrator) can retrieve it, and also many ways the student can get to it.

I will discuss each one in this article:

Let your student print the certificate after they pass the online quiz

If you want to enable your students to access/print the certificate for the online quiz immediately after they pass, chances are your online quiz is already configured to allow that. To check, click MODULES > PROPERTIES > ADVANCED SETTINGS, scroll down to the PASS/COMPLETE RESPONSE setting, and make sure the placeholder [[[CERTIFICATE]]] appears somewhere in the content.

This will enable your students to print a certificate right from the response page when they complete the quiz.

Let your student print the certificate from an email

If you want to enable your students to access/print the online quiz certificate from an email, you can configure the student response for the online quiz to include a link to the certificate.

To make sure your account has student emails enabled, click the ACCOUNT tab and make sure you have the “student email mode” setting configured to be “Yes Email Results..” (and click SUBMIT CHANGES).

Next, click MODULES > PROPERTIES > ADVANCED SETTINGS, scroll down to the STUDENT EMAIL TEMPLATE setting, and make sure the placeholder [[[CERTIFICATE]]] appears somewhere in the content.

As long as the student has an email address in the system, an email will be sent to them.

Let your student print the certificate from inside the course

If you want to enable your students to access/print the certificate from inside the course login, you simply need to modify the score report to show a certificate link. To do this, click the COURSES tab, then click ADMIN TOOLS next to the course that holds the online quiz, and then click PROPERTIES & SETTINGS.

Click the LAYOUT AND DESIGN tab. If you are using the default settings, the SCORE HISTORY is rendered on TAB 2 (although it can be rendered on any tab and in any place you choose). Assuming you are using the default, click TAB 2, and locate the placeholder [[[SCOREHISTORY]]]:

Delete the placeholder [[[SCOREHISTORY]]]. Next, click the INSERT A PLACEHOLDER button. When the placeholder popup window appears, click the “Insert Placeholder for All Other Dynamic Data” option, highlight “Placeholder for Extended Score History” from the list, and click INSERT >>.

Click CLOSE, and you will be returned to the layout of TAB 2 – now with the new placeholder. Make sure you SAVE CHANGES. Now, when your student goes to the SCORE HISTORY tab (or whatever you have named it), they will be able to click a DETAILS button next to each score, and access the passing certificate (among other things):

If you want to have the certificate link emailed to YOU

If you want the certificate link to be emailed to YOU each time an online quiz is complete, first click the ACCOUNT tab and make sure you have the “administrator email mode” setting configured to be “Yes Email Results..” (and click SUBMIT CHANGES).

Next, click MODULES > PROPERTIES > ADVANCED SETTINGS, scroll down to the ADMIN EMAIL TEMPLATE setting, and make sure the placeholder [[[CERTIFICATE]]] appears somewhere in the content.

Pull up the certificate link from inside the Administrator Area

If you want to access the certificate from inside your Weblearning 9 account, you can access it from the REPORTS area in multiple ways. Here is one way. Click REPORTS > STUDENT LEVEL REPORTS and click on the student name.

At the bottom of the report, click the VIEW link next to the online quiz you would like to get the certificate from:

Assuming you have not modified the report template for your server, the link to the certificate will appear along the top of the report:
