Learning Standards Sync Utility v1.1 (Latest Release)

  • The sync CLI command now supports retrieving only the Academic Benchmark standards that have changed during synchronization. This new behavior is enabled by default after an initial sync.
  • Server-side proxy updates were made to resolve learning standard sequencing issues between parent and child standards, which were causing download issues.
    • The fix is documented in  EDFI-235 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • A changes CLI command has been added that provides information regarding the availability of Academic Benchmark standards changes.
    • The output from the changes command is optionally available in a JSON format for scripting integration.
