In the U.S., states and publishers are hurrying to make sure their resources are correlated to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in addition to the already mandated state standards. JES & Co. has developed processes that make the job simpler and less expensive. The GLRC team is putting to use linked-data, making relationships between learning objectives and resources both dynamic and flexible. What is getting the state and district superintendents so excited? GLRC tools and services are enabling teachers to teach to the CCSS and still report and assess using the state standards. And publishers are finding that their products and services are not only meeting today’s multi-standards requirements but are making individualized learning plans and cross grade/subject options a reality. Don’t get left behind.
ASN enhancements are not just for teachers and publishers. Application programmers are getting what they need, too. “The Resource Description Editor (RDE) is finally here,” explains Joseph Chapman, Data Manager for JES & Co. “The RDE is designed to be used by those familiar with describing learning objectives yet not familiar with the Resource Description Framework (RDF), the basis for creating linked-data. Standards authors can work in the RDE’s user friendly interface and create ASN RDF/XML linked data before they know it.”
JES & Co. has designed the RDE to be configurable so that it can meet any publisher’s or organization’s way of describing learning objectives yet provide an underlying layer for interoperability with other products. The RDE is the first education focused Semantic Web tool of its kind. Perhaps that is why it is so valuable to the education community’s solutions providers” explained Chapman.
About the ASN
The Achievement Standards Network (ASN) provides an RDF-based framework for the description of achievement standards promulgated by governments and other organizations to prescribe what students should know and be able to do as a result of specific educational experiences.
ASN data is open source and made available to the education community at no cost.
