Equivalents to the UK's old National Record of Achievement?

Do other countries have (past or present) an equivalent to the UK's old 'National Record of Achievement' for pupils?

In the 1990s, the UK had a scheme in schools where pupils issued with a 'National Record of Achievement' at age 16 that they were supposed to use to summarise their achievements and manage their learning and development.

It came in a standardised folder with information sheets on:
- personal details
- personal statement
- qualifications and credits
- achievements and experiences
- employment history
- achievements in education
- attendance record
- individual action plan

It ultimately failed, and was replaced with a similar 'Progress File', but this was also scrapped in the mid-2000s.

I'm interested in whether any other countries around the world have similar schemes - either past or present - and whether they are considered effective or valuable.

I would imagine that the US would let the states determine whether or not to participate in something like this. I completed most of my schooling in Indiana in the 70s and 80s and have no recollection of doing anything like this.
