NM Categories and Resources

This section includes the Ed-Fi resources that are published from PowerSchool to the state Ed-Fi Data Hub. The Publish Data section of the Ed-Fi Reporting page allows the user to view the status of the published resources; data views provide the ability to drill down to the details within each data set.

Users can verify the current state of publishing, including any dependencies or errors that may prevent data from being successfully published. To supplement the automatic transactional publishing that occurs because of data updates in PowerSchool, users can also upload data on an as-needed basis using the "Run Now" button. For additional information about the options and functionality available, refer to Publish Data.

Each row under the Publish Data header provides one or more data views corresponding to the Ed-Fi resources contained within that area. To access the records published for any area, first click on the Review or Errors button:

  • For categories containing a single Ed-Fi resource such as Student Demographics, choose Published from the Choose data view pop-up menu to access a list of records and the key data elements that have been published.
  • For categories with multiple resources such as Student Enrollments, first choose the Published item from the Choose view category pop-up menu, and then select the desired data view from the Choose data view pop-up menu.

Note: Additional data views including Statistical Summary, Dependencies, and Publishing Errors are provided on the PowerSchool Ed-Fi Reporting Page to assist districts in ascertaining the status of their Ed-Fi data, and in troubleshooting any exceptions that may exist. 






The Descriptor category is used to describe metadata about the descriptors and their structure. Descriptors define enumeration vocabularies that are not fixed within the Ed-Fi schema, and vary according to the specific state implementation.
