Important School of Education Requirement
Beginning Fall 2006, all candidates taking courses in the School of Education are required to create and maintain a TaskStream account throughout the span of their enrollment in the program.
TaskStream is an on-line, web-based folio assessment system that is used by our candidates to document their learning process, and to showcase and archive digital products. Additionally, the School of Education uses TaskStream to aggregate and report data for programmatic improvement and accreditation purposes.
Accounts can be set-up by accessing the following link: www.taskstream.com. If you need technical support while using TaskStream, simply call TaskStream Mentoring Services toll-free Monday through Friday from 8AM until 7PM at 1-800-311-5656.
For on-site assistance please go to the Learning and Technology Resource Center, NAC 3/226, or the Multimedia Center, NAC 4/221.
Ideally, a candidate's TaskStream account should be set-up prior to the first day of classes.
