This documentation describes concepts and coding techniques necessary for a developer to understand and successfully implement Ed-Fi Dashboards.


This documentation is for technical professionals who work with educational data, including software developers, database administrators, and education data analysts. The overview information may be of interest to technology leaders.


Ed-Fi Dashboard technology leverages an extensive framework. Many components of Ed-Fi technology are platform-independent, including the Ed-Fi Data Standard and the Ed-Fi API. However, the concrete implementation of the Ed-Fi Dashboards is built upon a Microsoft technology stack. While this documentation attempts to provide detail sufficient for a wide variety of experience levels, familiarity with and access to the following technologies is necessary for installing and configuring the Ed-Fi Dashboard software components:

  • Microsoft Windows configuration activities
  • Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014
  • SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
  • Developer or Enterprise Edition
  • Visual Studio 2013 -or 2015
  • ASP.NET MVC 3 / C#
  • NuGet (Package Manager)
  • Windows Identity Foundation (WIF)
