The following information will provide you answers to frequently asked questions related to TaskStream at the University of Idaho. General guidelines to remember:
- Your first point of support is this webpage.
- If you are unable to find answers to your questions on this web page, look through your current course syllabi and contact your course instructor for questions related to TaskStream lesson and unit plans, signature assignments or TaskStream rubrics and scored evaluations.

TaskStream is a web-based e-portfolio system that the University of Idaho uses to collect information on your academic progress in the Teacher Education Program as it relates to various state and national standards. You will use a Direct Response Folio (DRF) to upload artifacts and submit Signature Assignments in various courses. Coursework is graded and your scores are available in TaskStream. The Teacher Education Program then uses that data in program improvement, accreditation and to monitor your progress throughout your preparation as an educator.
TaskStream provides you with web-based productivity tools that can assist with developing your own showcase web-based folio for job seeking and sharing with others who have an interest in your academic and professional development. It also provides you with templates for lesson and unit planning, a rubric wizard for assessing your students’ work and a mylibrary and cybrary where you can save your lesson and unit plans and share and copy (with appropriate citation) other users’ lessons and unit plans from around the world. You also are provided with 500Mb of upload space where you can safely keep your work and even a video of your teaching episodes. These are only a few of the benefits to you, as the biggest limitation on your use of this system will be your imagination and technological capabilities.
TaskStream is used in two keyways at the University of Idaho:
- First and foremost, this system provides a mechanism to support you in the submission, organization and preservation of assignments, evidence and reflections associated with your preparation as a future educator. The University of Idaho uses this data to help improve the Education Preparation Program (EPP) by looking at structured data that you submit, that are aligned to state and national standards including the Idaho Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
- This system is also used by the Teacher Education Program to collect evidence that is aligned to state and national standards for education preparation. The University of Idaho EPP utilizes this system to ensure that the evidence you submit demonstrates that your teacher education program is rigorous, comprehensive and preparing you to make a positive impact on your current and future students learning.
Blackboard is specifically designed by individual instructors to deliver content and manage assignments. TaskStream is used to assist you with the organization and dissemination of materials associated with competencies and standards related to your Teacher Education Program and specific content endorsement area(s).
At this time, you may be required to upload assignments to both Blackboard and TaskStream. The University of Idaho is currently working to integrate both systems. More information about this integration will be posted as it becomes available
