Abstract: Current student record management systems in universities focus only on academic activities of learners and are reflected in a formal transcript showing only academic results. To assist learners in whole person development, we proposed a new system model to also record extracurricular activities and their associated achievements with linkage to the corresponding graduate outcomes. In this paper, we proposed a new form of e-portfolio which captures both academic results and non-academic activities; discussed its challenges and resolution; and reviewed a practical implementation, named as CRESDA, in the City University of Hong Kong. By extending data landscape of learners, it provides a platform for learning analytics in future, especially in enhancing the prediction capability of student success. Such an implementation may provide a useful reference to all educational stakeholders.

Keywords: outcome-based learning; extracurricular activity; achievement; personal development.
