How Practical Is Ed-Fi for K12 Interoperability? Lessons from the Real World

Ed-Fi technologies were created by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation in 2011 to provide for K12 data interoperability. Ed-Fi allows K12 data to pass seamlessly between vendor applications into a centralized data hub for on-demand access from a “single version of the truth.”

Instructure has since worked with many districts - and a growing number of Ed-Fi-compliant vendors - to help districts deploy an Ed-Fi architecture.

In each of its SaaS Ed-Fi deployments, Instructure leverages the Ed-Fi API that is supported by most student information systems and a growing number of assessment applications.

Through this work, Instructure has learned a lot of hard lessons that are applicable to any organization that is interested in an Ed-Fi deployment.

In this session, Kathryn Grady, senior regional director at Instructure, will speak to:

- The original Ed-Fi vision.
- Lessons learned about the certified Ed-Fi API for SIS and assessment solutions.
- Lessons learned about the data mapping/loading process using an Ed-Fi API, including the realistic workload that districts should expect.
- How Instructure is leveraging Ed-Fi for its K12 analytics solution today.
