Qmlativ is Ed-Fi Data Standard Certified!

Skyward Qmlativ is now certified with the Ed-Fi API v4 Certification through the Ed-Fi Alliance! Let’s look at what this certification is and what it means for you.

Ed-Fi helps school leaders keep track of data points from various systems and turn those numbers into actions that improve instruction.

When you’re forced to pull data out of one system to merge it with data from another, it becomes static and loses value. When data can flow from system to system in real-time, it always maintains its value and accuracy.

Districts aligned with the Ed-Fi standard benefit from streamlined state reporting submissions, reduced maintenance costs, and more local control over their data and reporting.

When you’re able to get all data living in one spot, it is much easier to view, analyze, and report on. And that’s the benefit of the Ed-Fi data standard!

By prioritizing Ed-Fi Alliance standards, Skyward Qmlativ can seamlessly exchange data with third party integrations, helping school districts save time and work smarter!

“Skyward believes in the Ed-Fi Alliance’s vision and has taken an active role to ensure our solutions adhere to the Ed-Fi Data Standard and certifications,” said Ray Ackerlund, president at Skyward. “As more companies start to implement and certify with the Ed-Fi Alliance, it creates the steppingstones to ensure an easy connection and provides districts with quick access to meaningful data, regardless of where that data is initially housed. Skyward is proud to be a leader in this movement.”

If you’d like to explore Ed-Fi as a means of transferring data, check out the Ed-Fi alliance website and join their community (it’s free!). There are resources to help you find answers to your questions, as well as an Academy, where you can familiarize yourself with the language and learn about how districts can benefit from Ed-Fi.
