SIF Implementation Specification

Note: This information is taken from the TALL Desk Study


The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) is a not-for-profit organisation of software vendors, school districts, state departments of education and other organisations active in primary and secondary (K-12) markets in the US.


SIF is working with IMS to share and utilise specifications. The SIF specification is a web service model. While it is not definitive, it would appear that SIF services should work in the context of the ELF. SIF is a flexible framework and can potentially contain a wide range of components making it a challenge to map against the ELF. As the SIF project develops, the overlap with the ELF should increase.


This is a vendor-led initiative to try to make schools data interoperable. It will be significant to HEIs and FEIs in the area of checking qualifications and student profiles.
