DCMI Usage Board - Decision on 'educationLevel'

Title: Decision on proposal for new term "educationLevel"
Shepherd: Diane Hillmann
Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/decisions/2002/2002-02.educationLevel.shtml
Date: 2002-07-13
Description: The decision documented here refers to a proposal
                  considered at the Usage Board meeting of May 2002
                  in Bath. This document is pointed to from
                  the official list of Usage Board Decisions [1].

Text of proposal: http://dublincore.org/groups/education/Audience-Level-Proposal.shtml

Decision: Accept (with modified definition and elimination of the comment)

Reason: The proposed element refinement is not intended to say anything about the 'mediator' (the only existing refinement of dcterms:audience). The proposed name audienceLevel was changed to educationLevel to reflect the narrower context of the proposed refinement. The proposed comment was deleted as unnecessary.
