What is Ed-Fi?

The Ed-Fi Data Standard

The Ed-Fi Data Standard is a set of rules that allow (previously disconnected) educational data systems to connect. Any educational technology that’s powered by Ed-Fi—whether a student information system, a rostering tool, assessment software, etc.—can connect with any other.

The result? A full picture view student progress in a common format that can then be turned into insights.

Ed-Fi powers a growing number of tools that make your newly-integrated data actionable. Teachers use data driven insights to deliver personalized learning. Superintendents use consolidated data to make informed decisions. And state agencies use reports to allocate resources and craft evidence-based policies.

Data that works across all platforms

The first step to integrating multiple data systems is standardization—the technical term for making sure every app and piece of software records data in the same way. By establishing a practical, flexible set of rules for how student information should be recorded and stored, the Ed-Fi Data Standard allows a school’s myriad systems to finally speak the same “language”.
