I’m working on a wiki-like learning measurement project and would love your help finding potential contributors.
It’s called the Knowledge Genome Project (http://kgenome.org) and we’re creating open learning certifications to measure programmer expertise. The goal is to create an easy way to continuously assess learners and compare the success of different learning paths/materials. Our end goal is to map out all of human knowledge, but the initial phase of the project is focused on mapping the Computer Programming “Chromosome”.
Our model of learning measurement has been in the works for a few years, but the community itself is in a very early phase right now. We’re looking for self-professed expert programmers to help map out the subjects and concepts that make up programming knowledge. We’re mostly looking for folks to contribute their expertise and help write quesitons, not necessarily writing code. (Although there will inevitably be some code that needs writing.)
It’s going to be really fun project. If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass this info along.
