FAQs - Taskstream

What is Taskstream and do I need an account?

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.

How do I set up a Taskstream account?

Accounts can be set-up by accessing the following link: www.taskstream.com. Your landing page would be ‘Watermark’; after you click on the ‘login’ button you would then see ‘Taskstream’ as an option. Click on the ‘Taskstream’ icon to log into the program.

How soon do I need to set up my Taskstream account?

Ideally, a candidate's Taskstream account should be set-up prior to the first day of classes.

After I set up my Taskstream account, how do I self-enroll into my Program?

After setting up your Taskstream account, you would need a special code to self-enroll into your program in Taskstream. You would need a code to access the program DRF (Direct Response Folio) where you will submit assignments to your instructors.  Find your program on the attached list, then select the code next to the program.

The instructor for one of my courses said to submit an assignment in Taskstream, how do I upload and submit the work to my instructor?

Use the Candidate’s Guide to Using Taskstream to learn how to submit your assignment to your instructor. Remember, you must first upload the work to Taskstream then click on the ‘Submit Work’ button to have the work ‘sent’ to the specific instructor you are asked to identify in the process. Follow the same guide to ‘retrieve’ the work if you made an error and want to re-send the work again.

How do I see the score/grade I received for the assignment?

After opening your Taskstream account, click on your program link then click on the ‘Scores/Report/ tab on the far right of the screen to access your score/grade for a particular assignment.
