How do I access TaskStream?
The following groups of students will use TaskStream (http://www.taskstream.com) to submit and manage their portfolios:
Undergraduate students who took EDB 300 in Fall 2012 or later
Graduate early childhood licensure students who took ECE 500 in Fall 2012 or later
Graduate special education licensure students who took ESE 500 in Fall 2012 or later
Students in the MUST or Chinese Licensure programs beginning Summer 2012 or later
Students who transferred to the College of Education and Human Services in Fall 2012 or later. Transfer students should refer to details about how the portfolio process works with transfer courses.
Any student who is not included in one of these groups and who has already submitted artifacts through ePortfolio will continue to use the ePortfolio system. (Refer to ePortfolio handbooks and instructional “Quicksheets” to help you navigate and use ePortfolio. You can find these materials online at http://www.csuohio.edu/cehs/students/eport.html)
All students using TaskStream will be charged a portfolio lab fee which covers the cost of a 4-year subscription to TaskStream. This fee will automatically be charged to EDB 300 students. Transfer students who receive credit for EDB 300 must visit the Education Student Services Center to pay this fee. Graduate licensure students will receive information from their program coordinator about how to pay the fee.
Once you have paid the fee, you will receive a key code to activate your TaskStream account. To begin your subscription activation, go to the TaskStream Home Page. Below the login area, click the “Subscribe/Renew Today” link.
