Creation of an ICF-based Documentation Form
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I combine two (2) or more ICF Core Sets?
Yes, users can combine different ICF Core Sets. To select more than one ICF Core Set the user must first mark one ICF Core Set, and while holding the CTRL-button down mark the other ICF Core Set(s).
2. Can I delete ICF categories from the selected ICF Core Set(s) that are not relevant
for the person for whom I am creating a functioning profile?
No, ICF categories cannot be deleted, only added.
3. Do I have to rate all of the categories of the ICF Core Set I select?
No, not all ICF categories included in the selected ICF Core Set(s) have to be rated when creating a functioning profile. Note however that the functioning profile created will only display the categories that are rated.
4. Are the data I enter to create a functioning profile protected?
The data entered by a user to complete a documentation form and create a subsequent functioning profile cannot be stored on the website's server nor is visible to the website administrator or any parties other the user entering the data. Users are only able to save PDFs, export and save files of the data entered onto their own computer. Once the user closes the website, all the data of the session are immediately deleted from the website's server.
5. How can I save the documentation form that I have completed and the functioning
profile that I created?
Clicking the button "Print and save with definitions" enables the user to save the documentation form with the entered data as a PDF file on the user's own computer. This PDF will display all of the ICF categories irrespective if the category is rated or not.
Clicking the button "Print and save without definitions" enables the user to save the documentation form as above. However, the PDF file will not show the definitions nor inclusions/exclusion criteria.
Clicking the button "Export data" enables the user to export the documentation form as an Excel CSV file to the user's own computer. Note that the exported documentation form will contain only those categories that have been rated.
Once a functioning profile is created, it can be saved on the user's own computer as a PDF file.
6. Can I use the exported file as the basis for re-evaluating the same person?
Yes, if the user wants to use the exported file again to rate the same person, the exported file can be uploaded onto the website in a new session. Uploading the exported file is done by clicking on the button "Load file" on the page "Selection Process - Step 1" where the user is asked to select an ICF Core Set. Note that this uploaded file will contain only those categories that have been rated in the previous session. Once the file is uploaded and the documentation form is visual, the user can enter in the new information. The newly entered data needs to be exported and saved as a separate file onto the user's own computer as previously mentioned.
7. With Firefox I can move up and down the page and within a dropdown box without
using the scroll bars. Does this website allow me to do this as well?
Yes, if the page has two (2) scroll bars – an outer one for scrolling up and down the page and an inner one for scrolling up and down a list of items or a dropdown box on the page – this website allows the user to quickly scroll up and down the page or dropdown box without using the scroll bar with the use of a mouse wheel and Firefox (or many other internet browsers). The user just has to move the cursor at any place inside the dropdown box to scroll up and down the dropdown box and outside the dropdown box to scroll the page itself.
8. How can I zoom the page so that I can see the text better?
Using a mouse with an integrated wheel: To adapt the font size as needed, the user can zoom in or out by pressing the CTRL-button and keeping it pressed while turning the mouse wheel up or down.
Using a mouse without an integrated wheel: You can press the CTRL-button as indicated above while also pressing the "+" or "-" button of your numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard.
Pressing the CTRL-button and "0" returns to the original zoom level.
9. Any special considerations I have to take using a Mac?
Users of an Apple MacBook® who do not see scroll bars have to change the settings of the MacBook as follows:
Go to "System preferences", then click "General", then click "Show scroll bars" and select "Always". In selecting "Always" horizontal and/or vertical scroll bars depending on the box will become visible.
