The Tools of Engagement
We are excited to begin a service that will be a great benefit for you! As part of moving to an electronic way of assessing your performance, we have partnered with TaskStream.com. This service will allow you to submit certain KEY assignments electronically and access these assignment descriptions and rubrics easily. TaskStream will help also with tracking your performances more systematically as you move through the Block courses.
A pilot group of students last semester found other features such as planning lessons, making rubrics, and locating standards, to be an added benefit for them personally as they are progressing through the program. TaskStream will enable faculty to assess the KEY assignments online using the rubrics that are aligned to our program’s outcomes. The faculty envisions this as a tremendous way to measure candidate performance and help improve the overall program.
Since all block courses have at least one KEY assignment that will be submitted through this service, all education students in block courses are required to purchase a subscription to the website. Although you are able to register for a semester at a time, keep in mind that this is something that will be used in all block courses during your career at PNC.
