Georgia Standards of Excellence in CASE
GaDOE is using a new technical specification by IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global) called the Competency and Academic Standards Exchange (CASE) to enable a machine readable, linked data versions of state standards. With CASE, open-educational resources can be more easily tagged and discovered. Districts and individual educators can build crosswalks to their local learning targets, organize assessment results, and discover content through these crosswalks. The CASE format enables teaching, learning, and assessment software systems to access or consume competency frameworks and crosswalks.
