Very clear. But a couple of notes:
Regarding educaitonalAlignment's TargetName, in this case I would suggest
using the alpha-numeric code and/or GUID provided buy the CCSSO/NGA Center
in the name. In this case I suppose that is "CCSS.Math.Content.3.NTB.A.1" or
something like that.
This is where the proposed educationalAuthority as an organization entity ->
http://schema.org/Organization is still needed in the spec as an attribute
of the educaitonalAlignment or perhaps the educaitonalFramework. I had
thought you added it. This would add CCSSO/NGA center to the alignment and
together the TargetName/GUID is sufficient to match the aligned skill even
if the TargetURL is not from the CCSSO but rat the equivalent URL form AB

any other look-up reference hosted by some system for the Common Core.

Subject: Re: Adding tags from another ontology
Thanks for offering! When working at this level, it's easier to just list
the properties and values than worry about correct microdata or RDFa syntax.
Using that approach, here's an example EducationalAlignment representing
alignment of a fictional video to a standard in the Common Core.
* name: How to Round Integers
* author: Thag Simmons
* publisher: Contoso Learning Resources Inc.
* mediaType: Video
* alignmentType: teaches
* educationalFramework: CCSS
* targetDescription: Use place value understanding to round whole
numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
* targetUrl: http://corestandards.org/Math/Content/3/NBT/A/1
AlignmentObject (the type for the educationalAlignment property) includes a
targetName property but I didn't use it here because CCSS doesn't supply
names for the standards, only IDs and descriptions.
So, what I'm thinking of is an equivalent example where the
educationalFramework is Library of Congress Classification (LCC).
Greg: This begs the question of whether LCC is an educationalFramework or
whether that property should just be called "framework" or "taxonomy."
And Erika, with your background in Library Science are there other
taxonomies we should be considering. I'm already working on text complexity
and grade level taxonomies (news to be posted here shortly).

I'm a librarian lurker, who's had coursework on LCC & MARC cataloging. I
have a second advanced graduate degree in Education Psychology, and my
current job is Instruction Supervisor at an online university
<http://libraryconnectarchive.elsevier.com/lcn/0603/lcn060315.html> , which
specializes in learning media. A good portion of my work revolves around
assessment and competency alignment with course development teams, since we
consult on every new and revised University course. I'm also connected with
the ANTS project <http://ants.wetpaint.com/> , which has been talking of
exploring the possibility of serving as a pilot group for LRMI.
Would the EducationalAlignment sample be something a new participator could
pull together, or were you looking for long-time veterans to volunteer? If
you were fine with me taking a stab at it, I could model the sample after
your Common Core work.
Thanks and Hello!
