Certificate Report

This report allows you to print award certificates for your students.

The Certificate includes the following information:

  • a title (MathFacts in a Flash Award)
  • the name of the student who is receiving the certificate
  • the date the certificate is generated
  • the accomplishment (this can be standardized text or your own customized text)
  • signature lines (for the classroom teacher and principal or the people you have chosen)

Teachers can print the report for their students. Administrators can print it for any students in the schools that they have access to.

When you generate this report, you can choose these options:

  • which students or classes to include
  • which reporting parameter group to use, if any (this allows you to include students by school enrollment date, ethnicity, gender, language, characteristics, and/or grade)
  • which reporting period to include (a predefined or custom date range)
  • what text prints on the certificate (number of levels mastered or your own custom text)
  • which signature lines to include (for the classroom teacher and principal or the people you have chosen)
  • which border to use (choices are Awards Border or Math Border [appropriate for younger grades])
