MappingEDU is a web-based system designed to do one common, time-consuming data integration task well: map one data standard to another. The primary users are data analysts and technical staff who create mappings between data sources. MappingEDU also contains features to assist subject matter experts in reviewing data mappings.

MetaEd is a technology framework that uses an Ed-Fi-aligned domain specific language (DSL) to auto-generate software, database, and data standard artifacts.
A version of MetaEd called the MetaEd IDE supports the generation of Ed-Fi Extensions and all related artifacts. The MetaEd IDE is freely available to licensees.
The internal Ed-Fi Alliance team uses MetaEd to define and produce core components such as the Ed-Fi Standard Interchange Schema (XSD files), the Ed-Fi ODS (SQL Scripts), and technical documentation from a single source definition written in the MetaEd DSL.
Latest Version: 1.1 Products: Ed-Fi Data Standard, Ed-Fi Bulk Data Exchange for XML Support For: Tech Suite Two & Tech Suite Three
The Sample Data Generator produces realistic, cohesive, and 100% fictional datasets for use in demonstrations and testing.
The SDG prefers statistically realistic patterns (e.g., a student with poor attendance generally tracks to poor grades, students are the appropriate age for their grade level, students who are English learners have home languages that track to their ethnicity, and so forth). The system is configurable, and can produce arbitrarily large datasets.

The Ed-Fi Learning Standards Sync Utility is a tool for system administrators for synchronizing learning standards between the AB Connect API and a specified Ed-Fi ODS / API instance. Using the tool requires active credentials for both the target Ed-Fi ODS / API instance and the AB Connect API. The Sync Utility application provides a command-line interface (CLI) to set parameters and define options.
