Abstract: Both locally and abroad the system of streaming is considered universally to be a very unjust system of selecting pupils on the basis of end-of-year exams. However, locally there has not been much discussion of what could be the possible alternatives to this undesirable system. In this brief article we present the system of 'profiling' as a more just alternative for the assessment of pupils' achievement in school. At this stage where a number of pupil profile systems may be piloted at the various levels of the Maltese educational system these systems need to be promoted as being complementary to the existing assessment procedures rather thanĀ· as outright substitutes.
