Taskstream Logo

Taskstream is a cloud-based system for managing assessment, accreditation, and e-portfolios.

Taskstream AMS: All University of North Carolina Wilmington academic programs are engaged in an annual assessment cycle that engages faculty in a process of continuous improvement of program and student learning outcomes. This process is documented in UNCW’s Accountability Management System (AMS).  The Getting Started Guide and answers to Frequently Asked Questions are available to support faculty work in Taskstream AMS. For Taskstream training, support, or to request a Taskstream AMS account, email Dr. Jaci Webb- Dempsey at dempseyj@uncw.edu.

Taskstream LAT: Taskstream allows for secure collection of portfolio artifacts, rubric development, and monitoring and reporting through the Learning Achievement Tools (LAT). The Watson College of Education currently uses the LAT to develop the e-portfolio assessment system for the Program Evidences Folio required for initial teacher preparation programs, for the MSA Portfolio required for the Master of School Administration (MSA) program, and for other faculty-developed course projects and assessments. In the future, UNCW’s implementation of the new state-required assessment of teacher candidates -  edTPA – will also be housed in Taskstream. Link to TS login page

edTPA LogoedTPA is a performance-based, subject-specific assessment and support system used by more than 600 teacher preparation programs in some 40 states to emphasize, measure and support the skills and knowledge that all teachers need from Day 1 in the classroom.

Developed by educators for educators, edTPA is the first such standards-based assessment to become nationally available in the United States. It builds on decades of work on assessments of teacher performance and research regarding teaching skills that improve student learning.

It is transforming the preparation and certification of new teachers by complementing subject-area assessments with a rigorous process that requires teacher candidates to demonstrate that they have the classroom skills necessary to ensure students are learning. (Source: http://edtpa.aacte.org/faq)
