Educational Trajectory Working Group

Mission

The mission of the Educational Trajectory Working Group is to develop an XML standard and accompanying guidelines to support the tracking, planning, and audit of learners’ educational trajectory across medical schools and national organizations. Educational trajectory is the path of an individual learner through one or more programs of study and includes a sequence of formal curricular activities and events, informal professional development activities and events, and breaks in matriculation. Educational trajectory is likely to be different for every learner.

The group is also developing an XML standard and accompanying guidelines for data on a learner's educational achievement. Such a standard will document learner competency and make that data portable.
