How it Works


The Ed-Fi Exchange is a technology hub for community contributions aligned to the Ed-Fi Data Standard.

How it Works

How the Ed-Fi Exchange Benefits the Community

States, Districts, and the Ed-Fi Alliance contribute solutions to the Ed-Fi Exchange that may be downloaded by other Ed-Fi Licensees. Ed-Fi Exchange contributions may take the form of extensions to the Ed-Fi Data Standard, the Ed-Fi ODS and API, and Ed-Fi Dashboards in the form of plugins. In addition, conceptual documents such as technical white papers and implementation project overviews may be contributed to assist other licensees planning to leverage Ed-Fi technology. The goal is to make the Ed-Fi Community greater than the sum of its parts by openly sharing innovations aligned to the Ed-Fi Data Standard.

How to Fully Access Contributions

Only Ed-Fi Licensees can download contributions and access contributor contact information to learn more about their Ed-Fi aligned solutions. To request full access to the Ed-Fi Exchange, you may Request an Account. Once the Ed-Fi Alliance has verified your status as a licensee, you will receive an e-mail with instructions to log into the site. You will then be able to view additional solution detail, download contributions and contact solution contributors.
