Assessment Interoperability Framework

Various authors, Sept 28, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Rob Abel writes, "in support of the historic U.S. Race to the Top Assessment (RTTA) program the U.S. Department of Education has been working with the IMS Global/SIF Association partnership on the Assessment Interoperability Framework (AIF). Via this collaboration APIP is "synching up" with the U.S. Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) initiative. This is of course very exciting because RTTA represents almost all U.S. states - and APIP will enable not only new modular assessment architectures, but also much needed accessibility features for millions of learners. We are pleased to let you know that after a year of working on the AIF, we are excited to announce that the first phase of work is ready for prototyping and logical testing."  The draft CEDS elements can be found at https://ceds.ed.gov/aif.aspx.
