Product Vendors and Service Providers

Certifications and Badges

Demonstrate your commitment to collaboration and adherence to the Ed-Fi Data Standard.

When education agencies implement the Ed-Fi Data Standard, they often require product vendors or service providers to show evidence of their compliance with this standard. To ensure education technology providers meet this requirement, the Ed-Fi Alliance issues certifications and badges verifying adoption of the Ed-Fi Data Standard and Technology Suite. Earning these credentials can also help you adhere to state requirements, prove your product’s ability to work with the Ed-Fi Technology Suite, promote your solutions to the fast-growing number of agencies adopting the Ed-Fi Data Standard, and respond to request for proposals (RFP) and procurement requests with confidence.

Ed-Fi Alliance Certifications

Ed-Fi Alliance certifications measure a product vendor’s interoperability with our API. These certifications are available to student information systems (SIS), assessment providers, and domain-specific product providers supporting K-12 education agencies.

All certifications are established through the Ed-Fi Alliance Community governance process and incorporate input and requirements from active community members who work for state agencies, local district agencies, and technology vendors.
