Frequently Asked Questions

Use of Electronic Tools 
1.
Is it possible to make use of electronic tools other than WebSAMS, such as self-developed tools or tools purchased from the market, to handle OLE information and import the data into WebSAMS when generating SLP reports?
2.
Could schools implement SLP in whatever school-based formats or tools?
3.
For schools using WebSAMS, how could they display the scores/grades shown in the Academic Performance section?
4.
If a student repeats during the senior secondary school years, will all relevant records be included in the SLP report?
5.
Import/Export function is available in WebSAMS for maintaining records of performance / awards gained outside school, self-accounts and key projects. Is there any import/export function for maintaining OLE and in-school award records?
6.
When schools use WebSAMS to print SLP reports for students, the performance of the system is very slow. How could schools cope with the problem?
7.
Could schools input more than one key project for individual subject?
8.
Would EDB provide any tools and examples to help schools build SLP?
School Implementation 
1.
EDB has announced to streamline SLP in future. Are there any specific measures?
2.
My school has the practice to issue transcript and / or report card to every student when they leave school. Is it necessary for my school to redesign SLP?
3.
Should SLP include every single activity attended by a student?
4.
Is it necessary for schools to validate students' achievements and every single activity students have attended including those that are not organised by schools?
5.
Why can't SLP be formalised by using a standardised format?
6.
Does SLP imply that every school needs to adopt a ‘sophisticated’ portfolio system for their students?
7.
Is it necessary for schools to implement SLP at junior secondary forms?
8.
Should schools input the "number of participation hours" for students' OLE records?
Multiple Pathways 
1.
Some media reported that the lesson time of the NSS curriculum was inadequate for subject needs. Most of the tertiary institutions did not put emphasis on OLE or SLP when selecting candidates. Does it imply that SLP is useless? Will SLP be cancelled in order to reduce the workload of schools?
2.
How is SLP linked with the University and Post-secondary Institution Admission?
3.
Should schools generate different SLPs to cater for different needs of students such as university admission and job application?
4.
Participating in OLE and developing SLP are not solely for university admission or future employment. What are the more important benefits to students?
5.
What is the difference between SLP and the OEA form?
6.
Should all JUPAS OEA items be extracted from SLP?
7.
What is the consequence if I do not submit my SLP?
8.
Are there any recommendations on how to write the JUPAS “Additional Information” based on students' SLP “self-accounts”?
9.
Are there any guidelines to select information on activities for the OEA form?
10.
Would WebSAMS provide any support to help students extract relevant information from SLP to prepare for JUPAS application?
11.
My school is using tools purchased in the market / self-developed tools to handle activity information. Could we also use the sub-module "JUPAS Application" of WebSAMS?
12.
Is the sub-module "JUPAS Application" under the SLP module of WebSAMS able to generate the percentile from only one assessment? What other ways could be used to generate the percentile from more than one assessment?
13.
Is there any word limit for the “self-accounts” of SLP? Can it be the same as OEA?
