Online certificates are a confirmation of achievement and/or participation in your online tests.
Testportal allows PRO, MAX, MAX Dedicated and EDU University plan users to generate certificates for respondents.
Certificates are fully customizable to contain all the information you need.
You can manually send certificates to your respondents after an online assessment has ended and you have graded all test sheets.
How to generate online test certificates?
A certificate is a confirmation of taking part in the online test, of the respondent's results and of the organizing person or institution. Testportal allows you to effortlessly create both simple and fully personalized certificates.
Who can create online test certificate?
With the help of the certificate generator, you can also create confirmations of participation, for example, in training.
This is a useful feature if your training does not end with an exam but a simple test of skills and knowledge, and you still want to offer your respondents some kind of a document.
You can also use it if a respondent has not passed the final exam and you want them to receive a confirmation of participation instead of a certificate. In such a case, simply change the content of the certificate elements, which we describe below.
Creating online test certificate
You can start creating your certificate by navigating to the Certificate template tab in the Test configuration menu.

How to send certificates to respondents?
Your online test respondents can receive personalized certificates confirming their assessment participation and final result. All you have to do to send a certificate is to choose a respondent and deliver their certificate with only a few clicks.
Remember to make sure that you thoroughly checked the test results and that the grading criteria will not change! Only then should you send the certificates to your respondents.
Select a respondent and send their certificate with just a few clicks
Do this by going to the Test progress & results tab, and then selecting the Results table. Here, you will find two certificate delivery options:
Send certificates to selected respondents.
Download certificates for selected respondents.
If you choose to download certificates first, you will then have to send them manually as email attachments or via your preferred messaging app.
What if certificates have already been sent when the grading criteria change?
Changing grading criteria might affect online test grades and pass/fail marks. Make sure you review and then re-send certificates to all your respondents.
Is it possible to send certificates automatically?
We want to have full control over the distribution of certificates. That's why Testportal doesn't send certificates automatically after your respondents complete the test.
