How it Works


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

How the Ed-Fi Exchange Benefits the Community

States, Districts, Technology Providers and the Ed-Fi Alliance contribute solutions to the Ed-Fi Exchange that may be downloaded by other Ed-Fi Community members. 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 view contributing organization information to learn more about their Ed-Fi aligned solutions. To get full access to the Ed-Fi Exchange, you can request a license.

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.
