Achievement Standards Network (ASN): An Application Profile for Mapping K-12 Educational Resources to Achievement Standards

Stuart Allen Sutton, Diny Golder


This paper describes application profile development for the
National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Achievement Standards Network (ASN) in the
United States. The ASN is a national repository of machine-readable achievement
standards modeled in RDF that shape teaching and learning in the various states. We
describe the nature of the ASN metadata and the various uses to which that metadata
is applied including the alignment of the standards of one state to those of another
and the correlation of those standards to educational resources in support of
resource discovery and retrieval.
