The key to success.

Making the decision to pursue your master’s degree is a big choice. It can lead to more experiences, greater knowledge, and bigger opportunities. To make sure that you’re on track, utilize your advisor’s knowledge and all the advising resources available to you.


A powerful tool to help you improve.

Assessment is integral to creating and improving an effective education program at all levels. In the Department of Counseling and Graduate Education, we use Taskstream to help us collect and store your assessments. This information allows us to modify, improve, and evolve our teaching and programs to better serve you.

You will be required to purchase a subscription to Taskstream for each semester that you are in the transition to teaching, educational leadership, or special education programs. Your course instructors will talk to you about Taskstream and the specific assessments you will upload to this data-collection system.

After creating your account, you will also need to enroll yourself in the appropriate Direct Response Folio. This is the program or folder where you will see relevant key assessments and upload your work.

Visit the TaskStream website, create an account, and sign up for a new TaskStream subscription. Select “I am participating in a COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY program that requires TaskStream (student, faculty, etc.).” Then, confirm your university by selecting state (Indiana), type of institution (College/University), and institution (Purdue University Fort Wayne).

See step-by-step enrollment instructions here.
