Competency Association Type Updated Element

Alternate Name

Learning Standard Item Association Type

Definition

Defines the nature of the association between a Competency Item and an associated data object such as a Learning Resource, an Assessment Item, or even another Learning Standard Competency Framework Item.

Usage Notes

The Learning Standard Item Association entity defines metadata relationships between a Learning Standard Item and other objects or relationships between Learning Standard Items not otherwise defined in the normal taxonomy of the framework such as for competency-based pathways, relationships between different versions of the same learning standard, and relationships to resources.


For example, "Prerequisite" may indicate that the Associated Learning Standard Item is a Prerequisite of this Learning Standards Item. Another association may specify that a Learning Resource "Teaches" the specified Learning Standard Item, or is aligned to the "Reading Level" specified as part of the Learning Standard Item.
