Enabled by the Ed-Fi Data Standard, the Ed-Fi Implementation Suite of technology components allows schools districts and states to harness the power of the data they already collect to equip educators with actionable insights. The end result? Better academic outcomes for students and improved performance for schools and districts. Ed-Fi technology components also enable connections between school, district and state level systems to enable easy and rapid transmission of data and “apples to apples” comparative reporting.
The Ed-Fi Data Standard and suite of technology components save states and districts time and money. The Ed-Fi Data Standard is designed to be deployed quickly and efficiently, without paying a licensing fee or starting from scratch. Moreover, Ed-Fi technology components enable a state or district to build the connection between existing information systems. Allowing systems to communicate yields deeper insights and promotes better data-driven education decisions. A formalized feedback process encourages licensees to contribute new features and capabilities to the technology for the betterment of the community. This process benefits licensees by ensuring that the technology remains up to date in a continually evolving education environment.
Simplified, Rapid Reporting
Ed-Fi technology components are flexible enough to ensure state and district systems meet shifting reporting requirements. State agencies as well as school and district administrators can use reporting built with Ed-Fi technology components to supplement or replace existing state or federal accountability reports.
Improve Student Outcomes and Educator Satisfaction
Most importantly, the Ed-Fi Data Standard and suite of technology components give state and district education leaders the transformative power to create or connect secure data systems that put the power to improve student outcomes in the hands of educators when and where they need it most: schools.
Using Ed-Fi technology components as the foundation for secure data systems, administrators can make information available and accessible to the appropriate educators before the first day of school. Principals can identify trends in grade levels or subjects and address issues that can improve a school’s overall achievement. Teachers can monitor critical performance indicators from a variety of sources in a single student dashboard, enabling them to identify early warning signs and growth opportunities, and to intervene to ensure all students have an opportunity to succeed academically.
The Ed-Fi Data Standard and suite of technology components are available via free license.
