When editing additional information for learning resources (material), the teacher is shown a list of the grades used in his own national educational system, from which he can select the grades that the material is suitable for. The nationality of the teacher is stored in his user profile.

For each national grading system, the corresponding age ranges are known (for instance, "1. luokka" in Finland means 7-8 years old). The selected grades are stored as age ranges ("7-12", for instance).

Whenever someone else is looking a the resource, they see the suitable age range in their own national grading system (so a teacher from Hungary would see the suitable grades in the Hungarian educational system that correspond to the selected age range). In addition to this, the originally selected grade range is shown in parenthesis. Here's an example for a view for a Belgian/Flamish? teacher of a material made by a Finnish teacher:

Suitable age range: 2-5 Lager (originally "1-4 luokka" in Finland)

There are a few problems with this ticket:

  1. As resources are edited by several people from different countries, what grading system should be considered the original one? The national grading system of the last person to edit that field? Or the first grading system used? Or none at all, meaning we only store the age range?
  1. Some EU countries have quite complex grading systems that don't have a straight mapping from ages to grades. For example is Hungary the secondary school can be started at the age of 11, 13, or 15 years, and all these secondary shools have grades ranging from 1 to 4-8 (from ages 11-18, 13-18, and 15-18). So the age 15 could mean 1st grade in the 4-grade secondary school, 3rd grade in the 6-grade, or 5th grade in the 8-grade school.
