Taskstream is a software solution that provides a central online system to manage course and program student learning outcome assessment for academic areas, service area outcome and administrative unit outcome assessment for non-academic areas, program review, resource allocation, and strategic planning. One of the many benefits of Taskstream is its reporting capabilities at all levels of the assessment process.
At the end of the fall 2013 semester, preliminary implementation of Taskstream began with the development of a Taskstream Pilot Group which was composed of a small number of department chairs willing to enter student learning outcome assessment results from a past assessment cycle. The purpose was to determine if the custom template built within the Taskstream software by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment would serve the campus well moving forward to full implementation. As a result of this process, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment will be hosting a 2014 Summer Institute dedicated to training academic department chairs on the Taskstream system in preparation for fall 2014 deployment.

Similarly, Student Services will be hosting a Student Services Program Leaders’ Retreat where the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment will be training Student Services leadership how to use Taskstream to document outcomes assessment information for student learning outcomes and service area outcomes.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment plans to incorporate much of the college’s planning processes into the TaskStream user interface so that end users will have a one-stop-shop for institutional effectiveness related activities.
