Educational publisher Triumph Learning required taxonomies for precise alignment of standards-based instruction materials in their new content management system (CMS). In this presentation for the 2014 Data Harmony User Group meeting (DHUG), Kirk Sanders, an editorial Project Manager at Access Innovations, Inc., explains how Access designed mapping strategies to connect diverse vocabulary branches using codes, identifiers, and natural language anchor points.
Access Innovations captured a teaching standard’s complex structure, cross-linking it with the client’s teacher- and student-specific skills. Data Harmony programmers created a new export indicating the ‘full path’ of each preferred term, making it possible for Triumph Learning’s CMS implementation team to build flexible navigation and mapping options. The math and English taxonomies contain seven thousand high-quality terms for in-depth content tagging.
