OneRoster® Conformance Certification for HelloID (Cloud-Based IDaaS) and Expanded Certification for Identity and Access Manager (IAM)

OneRoster® Conformance Certification for HelloID (Cloud-Based IDaaS) and Expanded Certification for Identity and Access Manager (IAM)

Tools4ever, a global leader in Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) and an IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global) Affiliate member, is proud to announce OneRoster® conformance certification for HelloID (cloud-based IDaaS) and expanded certification for Identity and Access Manager (IAM). IMS Global is a nonprofit membership collaborative responsible for developing the OneRoster open standard – supporting education interoperability through the bi-directional data transfer of student information to learning systems and resources - and promulgating the adoption of innovative learning technologies to better enable education institutions.

OneRoster is a modern, easy to use data exchange for rostering, course setup and grade reporting. The standard is designed to integrate all of a school or district's student identity information with all of its heterogeneous learning platforms. Tools4ever's affiliation and ongoing certification efforts demonstrate a commitment to the continued development and adoption of learning technologies throughout all education levels.

The OneRoster standard utilizes a core profile of the IMS Learning Information Services (LIS) standard—primarily used by higher education institutions – that limits implementers to only consider read and delete options for the person, group, membership, and course selection services. The outcome is a lighter weight version of the LIS standard that better suits educational needs of K-12 districts with greater grade-transfer functionality, .csv support for more robust integration with Learning Management Services (LMS) and Learning Object Repositories (LOR), and availability via REST- or SOAP-binding. OneRoster eliminates the labor- and time-intensive manual process of formatting roster and other student data for each individual 3rd party system or resource that a school leverages to provide the best education possible. 

Tools4ever has added the following OneRoster conformance certifications:
