All School of Education degree, credential, and nondegree candidates must register for and establish an electronic portfolio account through Taskstream for the duration of their studies. The candidate’s electronic portfolio will be contributed to throughout the program of study and will include the course signature assignments and other key assessments as required by the candidate’s degree or credential program. The signature assignments are critical to program improvement efforts and to the School of Education’s continuing accreditation. A candidate’s final grade for courses with a signature assignment cannot be submitted until all necessary assessments have been uploaded to Taskstream. Successful evaluation of the electronic portfolio is required for degree completion and/or recommendation for a credential to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).
