IPFW Ed Leadership AlumAssessment is integral to having an effective education program at all levels, from preschool through higher education. In the Professional Studies Department, we use an outside vendor to help us with collecting data on our students (you) to make effective decisions about how to improve our teaching and programs. The data are also used in maintaining our accreditation.

You will be required to purchase a subscription to Taskstream for each semester you are in the Counselor Education, Educational Leadership, and Special Education programs. There are many options related to purchasing a subscription. You need to go to the Taskstream website and choose your options that are applicable to your program. (Averages are $69 for two years.)

Taskstream Subscription -Please note that you will need a Visa or MasterCard credit card to pay for your subscription. If you do not have a credit card, Visa gift cards are available at CVS/Walgreens, most major supermarkets, and gas stations for a minimal fee.

Your course instructors will talk about Taskstream and the assessments you will upload to this data collection system. We have included additional resources to help you with the technical aspect of using this system.
