The good: Taskstream is an online cloud based software that offers many options to “empower educators to document, organize, and manage assessment processes; systematically address accreditation requirements, develop, assess and manage e-portfolios; manage field placements, internships and other remote educational experiences; easily and reliably administer surveys; use outcomes-based assessment data to demonstrate effectiveness and effect change; to ultimately promote continuous improvement throughout their organization.” (taskstream.com).
The bad: Minimum cost of $25 per semester. However SMC purchases this for our program.
The bottom line: TaskStream is an established online portfolio, assessment, and accreditation platform that should help us generate a high-quality culminating project for our SMC leadership program.
