Add a Certificate at the end of Assessment

Dear All,

I m currently using Articulate storyline only, I want to know if we can create/design any slide to issue the learner a "certificate" at the end of the assessment ? . Can any of the result slides meet this purpose ?

Our Intention is to have the Learner earn a certificate at the end of the assessment, need to look  like below - also to include the "Date & signature of the head of training"

‘’Certificate of Achievement

This is to certify that

Employee Name

has completed successfully the online Aggreko Ethics Induction training. ‘’



Please advise, if this is possible .

Thank you very much

Hi Thanuja,

Have you tried inserting a results slide from Insert >New Slide >Quizzing - then click the Results Slide tab and choose either the Survey Results slide or the Blank Results Slide.

You can design these any way you'd like.

For the Date

There's a : JavaScript Best Practices and examples support page that shows how to insert the current date

For the Learner Name

Do you know how to create a text variable that allows the Learner to enter his/her own name that will then be accessible throughout the course? This tutorial explains how to do that - and on a Learner's certificate

For the signature

Will this be text or a "written" signature? If written, one way would be to insert an image of the handwritten signature.

Hi Thanuja,

If your learners are accessing the course via an LMS you can pull their name directly from the login details.... this works fine on our Moodle based LMS.

Insert this script into a trigger:
var player = GetPlayer();

var myName  = lmsAPI.GetStudentName();

var array  = myName.split(',');

var newName = array[1] + '  ' + array[0];

player.SetVar("newName", newName);

//myName = player.GetVar('myName');

//player.SetVar("newName", newName);


And display the data using a textbox with this in it:

Please note, the script wont function in Storyline preview. You'll have to upload it to your LMS to preview.

Disclaimer: I'm not in anyway smart enough to be the author of this script, I found it through a quick google and don't have the original link on this PC.
