SALT LAKE CITY, August 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Structure, the maker of Canvas, today announced that it has earned a new Ed-Fi Managed Operational Data Store and API Platform badge for Elevate K-12 Analytics and the Ed-Fi API Provider badge for Elevate Standards Alignment (formerly Academic Benchmarks), both for another two years. This distinction validates Instructure as a trusted Ed-Fi operational data store, analytics provider and API partner.
Instructure’s renewed badges reaffirm the SaaS platform’s continued contributions as part of the Ed-Fi collaborative community, which advocates for the effective use of data at scale in education agencies of all sizes through a data standard. Because Instructure’s Elevate products leverage the Ed-Fi standard and technology suite, any state or local education agency can more effectively leverage its own data to support administrators, educators, students, and parents. Districts have hundreds of apps in use and typically that data sits siled and unused. By seamlessly and securely bringing these data sources together through a data standard; administrators, educators, and parents can more clearly see important real-time data to support student success.
Ed-Fi Alliance, the nonprofit that helps shape the tools, data practices, and security standards for educational data interoperability in the country, has renewed the ODS/ API Platform for Elevate K-12 Analytics, Instructure’s analytics app for teachers, administrators, and districts that turns data into insights to improve school results. Additionally, Instructure continues to hold Ed-Fi Starter Kit Implementation Partner badges for Elevate-K12 Analytics; and for the API Provider Badge for Elevate Standards Alignment (formerly Academic Benchmarks), the content alignment and markup solution for learning enterprises. These badges demonstrate Instructure’s ongoing commitment to openness and interoperability with the products that make up the Instructure learning platform.
“With an overload of data from a variety of sources, schools and districts need to understand how technologies work together,” said Roshan Popale, Chief Information Officer at Instructure. “Our partnership with the Ed-Fi Alliance allows us to ensure that educators have access to the right data in a secure and flexible way, enabling them to make decisions that help educators improve outcomes for all students, without the investment needed to create and maintain a custom data warehouse.”
Elevate K-12 Analytics combines key data from disparate sources and systems, including student information systems, multiple assessment platforms, and Canvas LMS to help educators understand what affects student success , from attendance to engagement to socio-economic indicators, and offers dashboards, charts, and other visual indicators that are easy to explore, filter, and drill down on, so teachers at all levels can view, analyze and understand data.
“School districts across the country are struggling to fully understand and address their most pressing challenges without secure, reliable, real-time data. Solving big challenges like student equity, chronic absenteeism, and College and career readiness are core to the mission of the Ed-Fi Alliance community,” said Sean Casey, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Ed-Fi Alliance. “It’s important to note that no one in education can solve these huge, complicated problems alone. Strong partnerships with companies like Instructure are essential: they have worked hard to demonstrate their commitment to data standards, interoperability and delivering solutions that help their customers achieve the We are proud to partner with Instructure and congratulate them on their renewed offerings of badged solutions that can bring great value to members of the Ed-Fi community.
