Key Information

Abstract

The Achievement Standards Network Core RDF namespace provides URIs for vocabulary terms useful in RDFa markup and in development of application profiles in the manner defined by Dublin Core. Custom Application Profiles for competency frameworks that meet particular national or project needs can be designed using: (1) properties and classes from the ASN Core namespace, (2) locally defined sub-classes and sub-properties of the ASN terms; and (3) other RDF schemas and ontologies useful in the context of the application profile.

ASN vocabulary terms are declared using RDF Schema language to support RDF applications.

Background

The ASN Core vocabulary has been under continuous development and management since 2000.

Known Application Profiles

The following custom ASN application profiles have been created using ASN and other RDF schemas and ontologies including: Dublin Core, FOAF, and SKOS.

ASN:US

Desire2Learn maintains the ASN:US Application Profile and the ASN:US dataset. As of November 2012, ASN:US is the largest collection of ASN data with close to 5 million triples.

ASN:US offers the following services:

ASN:AU

On behalf of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), Education Services Australia publishes a machine readable version of the Australian Curriculum (ASN:AU).

ASN:AU has been expanded to make use of Australia-specific controlled vocabularies (including the Schools Online Thesaurus, and the Australian School Level vocabulary.

ASN:AU offers the following services:

  • A human-readable statement code; e.g. ACELA1460. This is the code we expect people to use to refer to content descriptions.
  • Versioned statement URI that allows resources and statements to be associated with specific versions of the Australian Curriculum and to remain valid through future updates.
  • Machine readable version-less statement URI's that contain no date/version information and automatically redirects to the latest version of the statement available.
  • A URL based on the statement code also redirects to the latest version of the statement available.
  • A SPARQL endpoint

Conceptual Model

  1. The ASN Conceptual Model is framed in terms of two entities:
    1. The standards document representing the promulgated standard as a whole; and
    2. The statement representing an individual achievement assertion in the standards document. The standards document is comprised of a set of related statements.
  2. All standards documents and statements conforming to the ASN Conceptual Model are identified by globally unique identifiers in the form of URI that are dereferencable over the Web.
  3. A set of core properties define the relationships between the standards document and statements and between statement dyads. The relationships defined in the core are of two types:
    1. Structural relationships: Structural properties are responsible for replicating the necessary structural relationships between components of the standards document—e.g., structuring hierarchies of statements in the form of taxon paths and establishing the relationship between a standards document and its set of component statements.
    2. Semantic relationships: Semantic properties define relationships of meaning between statements including assertions of equivalence or other forms of conceptual synergy of any useful sort. For example, the «crossSubectReference» property asserts that a statement in one standards document is related in an interdisciplinary manner to a statement in a second standards document.
  4. The statement entity is of two kinds—original and derived:
    1. Original statements: Statements in standards documents formally promulgated by a jurisdiction are called original statements in the ASN. Original statements are jurisdictionally binding.
    2. Derived statements: Third parties may create derived statements that refine original statements. Derived statements have no jurisdictional binding and are clearly identified as "derived." For example, a 3rd party may create in its own namespace a derived statement, or set of derived statements, that decompose an original statement into more granular derived statements to meet particular business needs. Conformant derived statements, like original statements, are identified by URI, are described using ASN statement properties (or property refinements (sub-properties) and utilize appropriate structural and relational properties associating them with original statements and other derived statements.
  5. The set of core ASN properties is extensible. The current set of properties will be extended to support additional structural and semantic relationships as they emerge in standards documentation and in use of standards data.
  6. At a minimum, dereferencing a standards document or original or derived statement URI must return the metadata describing the entity identified by the URI including any structural and semantic references to other ASN entities.

The following figure illustrates the entities and relationships in the ASN Conceptual Model.

ASN Term Declarations

Properties

The format and content of the ASN property tables are summarized below:

Property URI A Uniform Resource Identifier used to identify the property.
Label A human-readable label assigned to the property (May be represented in different languages.)
Defined By An identifier of a namespace, pointer to a schema, or bibliographic reference for a document within which the property is defined.
Source Definition The definition of the property in the namespace in which the property was originated. (May be represented in different languages.)
Source Comments Comments on the property from the namespace in which the property originated. (May be represented in different languages.)
Type of Term The grammatical category of the term ("Property", "Class").
Refines The described property semantically refines the referenced property. A refinement makes the meaning of the element narrower or more specific as defined in the DCMI Abstract Model (http://dublincore.org/documents/abstract-model/). It will share the meaning of the unrefined element but with a more restricted scope.
Property Domain The domain of the property being defined identifies the class(es) that may be acceptable instances of the subject of RDF statements for the property.
Property Range The range of the property being defined identifies the class(es) that may be acceptable instances of the object of RDF statements for the property.

Label Alternative Statement Label
Defined By

http://purl.org/ASN/schema/core/

Source Definition An alphanumeric notation or ID code identifying the statement in common use among end-users.
Source Comments Unlike Statement Notation, Alternative Statement Notation need not be an official identifier created by the promulgating agency. It must be an identifier in common use among end-users of the statement. Alternative Statement Notation should be seldom used and only with a clear demonstration of need (i.e., in common use). For example, in the Common Core State Standards (Math) in the U.S., the official Statement Notation of "CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.C.4" is abbreviated in common use by end-users to the unofficial Alternative Statement Notation of "1.NBT.4".

The «conceptKeyword» property is used in ASN-conforming data solely to denote the significant topicality of the achievement standard using free-text keywords and phrases derived and assigned by the indexer, e.g., "George Washington", "Ayers Rock", etc. «conceptKeyword» should be used judiciously and in moderation. «conceptKeyword» should be used only if an appropriate term does not exist in a controlled vocabulary.

Note: To express topical values from a controlled vocabulary (e.g., terms drawn from the Australia Schools Online Thesaurus (ScOT)), use the property «conceptTerm».

Note: Use «subject» to denote the learning area/discipline of the achievement standard—e.g., "History", "Science", "Social Studies", "Mathematics" etc.
