It serves as the foundation for enabling interoperability between secure data systems and contains a unified data model designed to capture the meaning and inherent structure of information most important in the K-12 education business.

Its Academic Benchmarks solution has been certified since 2018, and MasteryConnect was the very first assessment management system to be Ed-Fi certified in 2019.
Obtaining a certification or badge requires that rigorous testing standards be met along with a number of other important criteria, including transparency reporting and active user credentials. National and local education agencies considering getting started with Ed-Fi can rest assured that vendors who have earned an Ed-Fi badge can help them achieve an accurate, efficient and successful Ed-Fi implementation.
