INsite (Indiana Student Information to Empower) is an initiative of the Indiana University School of Education to:
- facilitate the use of the Ed-Fi data standard by Indiana school districts, charters, and nonpublic schools,
- increase the interoperability of K-12 organizations' districts’ data sources, and
- provide support and advocacy for K-12 organizations districts as they implement Ed-Fi and negotiate with multiple data vendors.
Ed-Fi is a data standard and accompanying suite of technologies supported by the nonprofit Ed-Fi Alliance and the larger community of individuals and organizations using and further developing that data standard. The data standard allows different data systems to be interoperable (meaning, ideally, that you do not need to go to five different databases to get all of the information you need about your district, school, or students).
