Motivation[edit]

Used to record the range of grades taught at a school, e.g. K-12, K-6, 7-12, etc. Also used as qualifier on gender educated to handle partially coed schools that accept both sexes in some grades but only one sex in others. SJK (talk) 07:38, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Note: The concept of having years or grades in primary and secondary is universal, but the number of years/grades and their naming varies from country to country (and sometimes even between different regions of the same country.) Using an item as the value (rather than a number) gives us the flexibility to use whatever nomenclature is natural for each country. For example, many education systems have an initial year of primary/elementary education before year/grade 1, but it is sometimes called Kindergarten (US, some states of Australia), Reception (England, other states of Australia), Prep (yet other states of Australia), etc. Also, in some countries the numbering is restarted at secondary school (i.e. Form 1-6 rather than years/grades 7-12). So, items lets us use the most natural terminology for each education system, which will minimise user confusion (most people who edit school items are mainly editing schools in their own country, so it will be easier for them if they can use their country's natural terminology as much as possible).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support something needs to be done in the field. Personally, I'd have preferred the approach I had suggested at Wikidata:Property proposal/start grade. --- Jura 15:39, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @SJK: I tried to create this property but an automatic check failed: description Highest educational year (Q10291405) (aka grade) taught by this institution. Can also be used as a qualifier of gender educated to indicate the highest grade in which given gender is admitted (to handle partially coed schools, which accept both genders in some grades but only a single gender in others) is too long.. Please fix your proposal and your property will be created shortly. This is an automated message but do not hesitate to ping me if you need any help. − Pintoch (talk) 17:09, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
