|Yes||Yes||Yes||Code Set: SIF|
A SIF Code Set is a closed set of values for a field (element) that can be defined as a set of values. In the SIF Data Model, Code Sets are specified in one of three ways: (1) an enumeration in the XML definition of the element in the data model, (2) an enumeration in a SIF Code Set file published separately from the Data Model, and (3) an enumeration (or range) published by an organization external to SIF. Number (3) is called an external code set and numbers (1) and (2) are called SIF Code Sets.

A Composite object is an object designed for a particular use case or limited set of use cases. The object is usually made up of the combined parts of Entity objects. These objects are part of the SIF Physical Model but are not part of the Entity model (sub-model). An example of a Composite object is the StudentPersonal object from the (NA) 2.6 specification. This object contains student information from the Student object in the Entity model as well as information from other objects.

|Yes||Yes||Yes||Conformance Statement Questionnaire|
A declaration by the Solution Provider describing how the product meets the conformance requirements for the SIF Certification Program, including which optional features are supported. It also identifies the precise environment and software configuration in which conformance was tested.
A Context is optional Data Model-specific metadata that may accompany a Consumer Request as a way of further scoping and restricting the selected Provider. For example a supplied Context might indicate that the Student Schedule Provider Service being requested in Zone XYZ is the one dealing with next term’s data, rather than the current one.
A Zone can contain multiple Object Provider Services, each offering its data in a differently named context, or a given Service implementation may support multiple contexts for the same Provider interface.
There can be only one Service of a given Object Type with a given Context in any one Zone.
“Create, Read, Update and Delete”, corresponding to the REST POST, GET, PUT and DELETE operations.
