Taskstream accounts are required of students enrolled in the following School of Education (SOE) degree programs:
- Bachelor in Elementary Education
- Master of Teaching Elementary Education
- Master of Education in Educational Leadership (all concentrations).
Taskstream is a web-based electronic data system that provides assessment data to faculty and candidates in order to evaluate progress against professional standards for teachers and leaders in education. These data support approval by the Florida Department of Education and the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Faculty use data from the assessments for continuous program improvement.
Accounts should be purchased once the candidate is in a course with a Critical Task (formative or summative, or a Transition Point Project). Formative Tasks (FT) help candidates and faculty monitor progress and identify areas in need of growth; there is no required minimum mean score for FTs, but candidates must upload the Formative Task to Taskstream or earn an Incomplete for the course. Summative Tasks (SCT) evaluate mastery of required knowledge, skills, and/or dispositions and candidates must earn a mean score of 3 or higher on a 5-point scale, or a 2.0 or higher on a 4-point scale to pass the course.
In addition to assessments, there might also be forms to complete and upload into Taskstream. Information on how to get and use a Taskstream account is available in the program orientation on Canvas.
