ESDA - Overview of Functions

 

ESDA performs core and non-core functions:

  • Core functions – collecting data of SHS, APASO and KPM, publishing reports, and submitting data of SHS and KPM to the EDB, etc.
  • Non-core functions – conducting school-based surveys.

 

The core functions of ESDA are embraced in the following seven main component modules:

 

1. System Tools (ST)

The System Tools provide a set of tools for the System Administrator to manage ESDA. For instance, ST allows the System Administrator to change the system interface, set school year, manage user passwords and set the default language, etc.

* If necessary, users can change the password after logging in the system. Please ensure the password is secure and confidential, as well as should not be disclosed to any person.

 

2. User Management (UM)

UM contains four core functions, namely, Group Management, Account Management, Import User List and Restore Deleted Users. The Administrator uses the UM functions to create user accounts, define groups and assign privileges to the groups after installation of ESDA.

 

3. Survey Administration (SA)

This module is used by the Administrator to publish SHS, APASO and ESR questionnaires. Online mode or offline mode can be defined by the Administrator depending on the school's situation.

 

4. Data Input (DI)

DI allows users to input KPM data directly through the web interface of ESDA. ESDA can validate the data types and the valid ranges of the values on entry.

 

5. Report Viewer (RV)

This functional module is mainly designed to provide reports for SHS, APASO, and KPM items to facilitate the analysis of data. The results are displayed in the form of tables and statistical charts.

 

6. Data Preparation for Submission (DPS)

Schools can use the module of DPS to pack data, including data of SHS and KPM, into a data package for submission to Indicators Section of the Education Bureau through the Communication and Delivery System (CDS) in WebSAMS.

 

7. Do Survey (DS)

Users with the assigned privilege can conduct online surveys in DS. All surveys are anonymous. When submitting their responses, users will be notified for un-answered questions by DS.
