Faceted Curriculum Project/To-Do List
This is a to-do list to get the Faceted Curriculum Project off the ground.
- Check the integrity of the directory hierarchy, and delete unused directories/pages.
- Go through all semantic tags, and correct (remove extraneous) spacing between brackets. Otherwise, attributes, categories, etc... have names with extra space.
Drafting Semantic Structure
A thorough outline of this project should be created, including the following:
- A description of all semantic connections to be used (all predicates, and usage guidelines)
- A description of all categories.
- A template page, for each category.
- Templates to make semantic references simpler.
One fully featured Block
A fully-featured Block should be developed, including multiple facets, and connections to a few standards. In addition, a page should be developed for simultaneously viewing multiple facets via transduction.
Quality Control Guidelines
A method should be devised for quality control.
- Semantic predicates to establish trust.
- Guidelines for users to check that their name is not being misused.
- Qualification standards for contributors to various sections.
Semantic Search Pages
A few pages should be created to conduct common semantic searches
- A search to find all blocks addressing a given standard.
- A search to find all facets looking at a given block.
- A search to find all blocks addressing a standard from a given country/state.
- A standard table, of all standards of a given state, organized by grade level and state thread.
At least two sets of high school mathematics standards should be incorporated, with semantic tagging. The U.S. California 8-12 math standards  (excluding sections on AP Probability and Statistics, Calculus) , and the Massachusetts 9-12 math standards , are good starting points, receiving the highest ratings of all states in the U.S. in a study by the Fordham institute (see ).
Entering Assessment Problems
An initial collection of problems should be entered, for each block. These problems should test whether a person understands the content of the block, nothing more, nothing less. These problems are only meant for assessment, not for drill or synthesis.
