This is far more that a good idea. It's a requirement that oddly has not yet been implemented. However, to make it useful, it needs to work in conjunction with a minimum required quiz score setting. There could be serious consequences to automatically issuing a certificate to a student who has failed the quiz. Other than that, this feature would remove a ridiculous burden on instructors who have to manually issue certificates to students one at a time according to email notifications. I spend 10 to 15 minutes on this tedious task every morning due to this oversight. The algorithm I use is mindlessly trivial; issue if quiz score is 60 or above. It should be automatic.
