TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText 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 signature assignments in various courses. Coursework is graded and your scores are available in TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText. The teacher education program then uses that data in program improvement, accreditation and to monitor your progress throughout your preparation as an educator.
TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText 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 Tk20 with LiveText is used in two key ways.
- First and foremost, the 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 and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
- 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.
Locally we pull a registration report for courses that use TaskStream here at the University of Idaho. We then send you an email near the start of the semester to let you know the status of your account.
How does my account work?
There are two components to your TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText account.
- The first part of your account is accessing the system itself. If you are currently enrolled in any of the teacher education related courses, then you will automatically be added to the TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText under your Vandal Email address.
- The second part of your account is the Self-Enrollment code. This code allows you to submit assignments/upload work to TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText. You will need to enter the self-enrollment code for your class. Below is a table of all of the self-enrollment codes for the different courses and programs within Teacher Education.
The EPP will pay for your account on a semester to semester basis while you are enrolled in a teacher education related course. If you do not register for a teacher education course your account will go into “inactive” status. Your work still will be in the system.
Student accounts are set up before each semester. This will allow you to login to TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText. You can contact TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText technical support if you are having difficulty with the self-enrollment code, need to reset your password or are having difficulty with uploading an assignment. The TaskStream administrator for the University of Idaho (who can add you to the site license) is Daniel Campbell, Ph.D. and can be reached via email at email@example.com.
Upon successful completion of your teacher education program you can download your TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText data or you can choose to continue your subscription at your own cost as a TaskStream Tk20 with LiveText Alumni.
