Why Is the SIF 3.0 Data Model for My Organization?
In the US, the federally developed Common Education Data Standard (CEDS) version 3.0 defines a Logical Data Model for the U.S. education domain. CEDS does not, however, standardize how the various data sources located within the District or State transfer their data to and from each other or focus on the specific needs of managing district level-specific data management. Such a standard would need to define a dynamic application-to-application data transfer framework, which was secure, robust, and fully CEDS-compatible.
The SIF Implementation Specification (US) 3.0 is this standard. It has been architected to incorporate the entire CEDS 3.0 Logical Data Model, and as a result, contains the full breadth of the CEDS 3.0 Data Model, from Early Childhood to K12 to Higher Education to the workforce, as well as support for other important data initiatives such as Race to the Top Assessment, Common Core State Standards, the SLDS Program, and in Bloom Initiatives! The SIF (US) 3.0 Data Model, doesn’t stop there – the 3.0 data model is really CEDS ‘PLUS’ as it also contains additional district critical SIF-based objects not currently incorporated into the CEDS Logical Data Model!
