Definition: Liquidity is the characteristic of data to be interchangeable from the currency of one organization’s system to another.

What This Means: Liquidity for education information systems is not an institutionalized term. The characteristics of liquidity should include the capability of data to be exchanged across education agencies in a timely manner without any loss of accuracy or precision. Liquidity is important when education records are being exchanged PK-20, or for migrant or mobile students, or for LEA to SEA reporting. One sense of liquidity is that the data within the information systems of one education agency would not need to be crosswalked, mapped, or otherwise modified to be exchanged with another agency if there were complete liquidity of the data between the two agencies.
