TaskStream Support

TaskStream is the assessment management software used by each student in the College of Education throughout his or her program. The Music Education Program also requires the use of this software.

Each student is required to purchase a subscription to TaskStream within the first week of education coursework. However, with the exception of SPED 319, courses that count toward the undergraduate minor in Educational Studies do not require a subscription to TaskStream.

The software has many benefits for both students and programs.  Click on the links below to learn how to purchase a subscription, enroll in a TaskStream program, and use TaskStream to advance your career as a teacher, counselor or school leader.

Step 1: Purchase a Subscription

Each student is required to purchase a subscription to TaskStream within the first week of education coursework.  However, with the exception of SPED 319, courses that count toward the undergraduate minor in Educational Studies do not require a subscription to TaskStream.

The directions for subscribing to TaskStream are simple and easy to follow. Read the directions linked in the previous sentence, and then go to the TaskStream website to purchase your subscription.

Students must maintain their subscriptions over the duration of their studies in the College of Education or the Music Education Program.  Subscription rates are less per semester the more semesters you purchase, but you may always choose to renew a subscription if it is running out. Click here for subscription rates for students in higher education.

Step 2: Enroll in a TaskStream Program

Each Roosevelt University program has a space within TaskStream that has been designated for use by its students.  Once a subscription has been purchased, you must self-enroll in the appropriate TaskStream program.  The directions for self-enrolling in the program are simple and easy to follow.  Simply read and follow the directions linked in the previous sentence.

Step 3: Submit Forms and Documents for Assessment
