Taskstream is an electronic portfolio system that will be used for the collection, evaluation and preservation of student work. Through Taskstream, students will submit key assignment, known as electronic evidences which will be used for program accreditation and quality assurance.
Unlike Blackboard, Taskstream allows various teacher education standards and competencies to be connected to lesson plans, scoring rubrics, and instructional units. Taskstream also allows items to be published, shared, and archived through the use of the Cybrary. It is able to be used as an online college accreditation portfolio for students because it is used throughout a candidate’s program.
Taskstream services will be provided to you free of charge. Students will be required to purchase Taskstream memberships.

No. Your Taskstream account is distinct and separate and is not affiliated or connected to any accounts at East Carolina University.

First, sign in to your Taskstream account. On the right side of the screen, you should be able to locate a menu titled “Evaluation Shortcuts”. Locate and select “Evaluate” in the “Evaluation Shortcuts” menu. You will be prompted to select the program and audience of interest. After you make this selection, you will be presented with a list of students who have submitted their work to you. Click on the yellow “Evaluate” button beside any artifact.

After evaluating the artifact, select “Record evaluation as final and release artifact” and submit your evaluation. Alternately, you may send the article back to the author (student) by selecting “Send back for revision,” or you may select “Record as final but release evaluation to author later” if you are not ready to release the score to the student.

You may edit any evaluations you have made as long as you have not already released them as final to the author (student). If you have already released an evaluation as final, submit a request for the edit at coehelp.ecu.edu
