Overview

The Learner Transcript module is part of the Pro Suite of modules for the Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit. Enabling this module and adding the associated shortcode/block to a page will generate a printable transcript for the active learner. It’s an easy way for learners to see a consolidated view of their overall course progress.

Transcript Content

The transcript is output as a table with a customizable header and footer.  Here’s a description of the available transcript columns:

  • Course: A course the user is enrolled in (includes all course types: closed, open and free). The transcript displays all courses the user is currently enrolled in, as well as courses the user has previously completed.
  • Status: The current course status: Not Started, In Progress, Completed (with date)
  • Steps: The number of steps in the course (lessons + topics)
  • Avg. Score: The average score the user attained across all quizzes in the course.  If quizzes are attempted multiple times, only the highest attempt will be counted.  Failed quizzes are not included in the average.
  • Final Score: The score the user attained on:
    • The quiz associated with the course
    • If there is no quiz associated with the course, the quiz associated with the last lesson in the course.

Module Settings

  • Accent UI color: Specify an accent color that will be used in the generated transcript.  Useful for coordinating the transcript with your brand standards or logo.
  • Logo URL: Insert a link to an image that will be displayed at the top of the transcript.
  • Heading: Text that appears below your logo.
  • Organization: The name of the organization issuing the transcript.
  • Table course sorting: Select the order in which courses will appear on the transcript.
  • Disable ______ column: Check to prevent the specified column from appearing on the transcript.
  • Logo URL (Footer): Insert a link to an image that will be displayed at the bottom of the transcript.
  • Disclaimer: Insert text that will be displayed at the bottom of the transcript.

Shortcode/Block

[uo_transcript]

Block name: Learner Transcript

The transcript shortcode or block can be added to any page. It does not support any attributes.

Transcript Page

The transcript can be quite large, so we recommend that you create a dedicated page for the transcript. Transcripts are only available to signed in users; there’s no way for administrators to view transcripts for all users. If this is required, consider using the User Switching plugin and then switch to the user and view the transcript as that user.

Transcript Printing

To print the transcript, use the Print button above the logo area rather than the browser’s print function.  Printing may vary by browser.

Continuing Education Credits/Hours

This module integrates with the Uncanny Continuing Education Credits plugin to display a number of available/earned credits or hours beside each course in the transcript:

To learn more about this functionality, see Adding Credits to Student Transcript.

Overriding the Transcript template

Update: As of Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit Pro version 3.1, you can edit files in an upgrade-safe way using overrides.   Copy the template into a directory within your theme named /uncanny-toolkit/, keeping the same file structure but removing the /templates/ subdirectory.

For example, to override the transcript template, copy:

wp-content/plugins/uncanny-toolkit-pro/src/templates/transcript.php
to
wp-content/themes/yourtheme/uncanny-toolkit/transcript.php

The copied file will now override the default template in the Uncanny Toolkit.

Warning: Do not edit these files within the the Uncanny Toolkit plugin itself, as they are overwritten during the upgrade process and any customizations will be lost.

    Hi! I love this! However, I’d like to suggest a feature (or if this already exists I’d love to know) – A shortcode or option to change the color of the big blue bar at the top of the transcript. I know I can change some of the text, but it doesn’t seem that it’s possible to change that bar. It definitely clashes with my theme.

    Thanks!

      Hi Halle, the transcript module has a setting for “Primary UI Color”. This controls the color of the bar. You can access it from the Toolkit settings page by clicking the gear icon on the Learner Transcript module.

    Hello,
    May I know whether the course author can see only his/her published courses and the list of enrolled students with names for a particular course which is published by him, in the front end.

      This module is ONLY for end users; the transcript is just shown for the signed in users. There is no way to choose other users. As an aside, none of our plugins support course authors viewing results for students of those courses. We have some reporting options for Group Leaders (not this module), but not authors.

          None of our plugins consider course author whatsoever. If the author is not also a Group Leader then none of our reports will work based on their status as the author.

      I’m afraid this isn’t possible. The transcript is meant to be a summarized record of course completions, so it includes average quiz scores and course completion records only.
