The Ed-Fi Validation Tool enables Ed-Fi adopters to run validation checks against Ed-Fi data exchange files that have been created according to the Ed-Fi Data Standard and Ed-Fi Standard Interchange Schemas.

In order to begin using the Validation Tool, you simply need to visit and follow the on-screen instructions for creating an account. Once you create an account, you can create and run test sets by selecting an appropriate version of the Ed-Fi schema and a validation use case that matches your particular data set, uploading test XML data files and executing the validation step. The result of a validation test run is returned as a PASS or FAIL, and detailed information is provided regarding warnings or errors encountered during the validation.

For more information about the Ed-Fi data model and Ed-Fi Standard Interchange Schemas, see the Ed-Fi Unifying Data Model and Ed-Fi Interchange Schema Documentation available online at
