Different use-cases and different periodicities of data exchange require different interchange schema. Ed-Fi Data Standard v2.0 contains a set of twenty-one Standard Interchange Schemas to handle common data exchange use cases, including basic student profile information, attendance records, assessment results, program participation, and many other information-transfer scenarios.

The Ed-Fi Standard Interchange Schemas are XSD files, all of which utilize the domain entities and other types defined in the Ed-Fi Core schema. Through field-testing, the standard Ed-Fi schema definitions provide a rigorous structure for data, but allow a reasonable degree of flexibility to account for different levels of source data availability. 

Detailed documentation for each XSD file can be found in the Interchange Schema Documentation section of this site.
