2. How can I update rubrics, assignments or assessment methods?

Please contact the E-Portfolio Coordinator at edit@purdue.edu to arrange a meeting to review these items.  Please indicate the specific TaskStream program name and assignment name(s) in your email so we can locate them and prepare to make updates.   It is very helpful for Program Conveners to visit our office and meet in person to review the program/assignments/rubrics/assessment methods.  An in-person meeting will expedite the process, enhance accuracy, and eliminate misunderstanding.  Thank you!  :-)

4. How do I calculate the data for the report?

In the TaskStream report, the meaningful data for us is “distribution of scores”. We need to sum up all the “score 1” items for the rubric item I.1; I.2…IV.2, overall performance. Then we do the same thing to “score 2” items, “score 3” items and “score 4 items”. After summing up all the “score 1”, “score 2”, “score 3” and “score 4” for rubric items “I.1, I.2…overall performance”, you will have four N values for each rubric item, such as [0], [7], [93], [145] for rubric item I.1 in the sample report.

Then calculate the sum and the percentage of the four numbers. The formula to get the mean is:

Mean=( [0]*1 + [7]*2 + [93]*3 + [145]*4 ) / ( [0] + [7] + [93] + [145] )

Apply this to get the data for each of the items in the rubric.

Note the following rubric score ranges:

0.1 to 1.0 = 1
1.1 to 2.0 = 2
2.1 to 3.0 = 3
3.1 to 4.0 = 4

5. How can I get help to generate the report?

Please feel free to contact the E-Portfolio Coordinator at edit@purdue.edu to assist you with generating reports.  It is very helpful for Program Conveners to visit our office and meet in person to review the program/assignments/ rubrics/assessment methods.  An in-person meeting will expedite the process, enhance accuracy and eliminate misunderstanding.  Thank you!  :-)

6. How can I get my students enrolled in the correct TaskStream program?

There are two ways students can be enrolled in a TaskStream program (enrollment is not automatic):

1. Either they or their instructor can email edit@purdue.edu and ask that they be enrolled in a specified program.

2. They can self-enroll using an enrollment code and the instructions found in the bottom of the TaskStream Home screen that says: “Don’t see your program? If you have a self-enrollment code, enter it here to enroll yourself as an author. If you do not have your code, please contact your instructor or the TaskStream Coordinator at your Institution.” Codes can also be found here:
