Sample K-12 Ontologies[edit]

Here is a link to a site that has a sample ontology for the K-12 education domain.

This case study examines the extension of the National Information Exchange Model NIEM to include K-12 education metadata. NIEM’s compliance with ISO/IEC 11179 metadata standards was found to be critical for cost-effective system interoperability. This study indicates that extending the NIEM can be compatible with RDF and OWL metadata standards.
