PowerSchool Integrated Data Exchange with Ed-Fi

Two key aspects are critical to understanding the workings of the PowerSchool implementation of the Integrated Data Exchange with Ed-Fi:

  • Categories and Resources – These are the standard and instance-specific Ed-Fi objects used to group and specify data by category and resource. Ed-Fi leverages standard protocols including the JSON data category format in order to allow school districts and the state to exchange information as defined within the Ed-Fi specifications. Ed-Fi Resources are persons, places, events, objects, or concepts about which data can be collected. A resource provides context for a data element, for example, Student Demographics, Student School, Student Academic Record, etc. The data elements within a resource are sometimes referred to as properties. Only the resources used by your Ed-Fi instance are included in this section.
  • PowerSchool Ed-Fi Reporting Page – This is the vehicle for districts to manage and monitor the Ed-Fi Data Exchange process. This page is first organized by the Ed-Fi transaction types that users will work with: Download Data, Publish Data, and On Demand. Within each type, resources are grouped by category, and then by one or more data views, which provide summary information and details about the Ed-Fi resources, their associated data elements, and their publication status.
