Electronic Portfolio: MAT

Candidates in the MAT program must be evaluated with an electronic portfolio, which is incorporated with the Taskstream DRF for the MAT Internship. Please consult the Program Director for specific directions, but below are the general directions.

1. The electronic portfolios for the MAT is accessed through Taskstream. Fees to cover Taskstream subscriptions are managed through EDN 5460, and you should receive instruction about the process in EDN 5040.

2. All evidences were developed with a particular course product in mind; note that students who started on a previous catalogue will have to substitute independent materials to replace those course materials. As you take ENG 5300 or EDN 5040, you should upload the required course products from those courses as soon as the course ends, unless the course instructor requires an upload to Taskstream as a course requirement. In some cases course instructors may not require materials that exactly match the required evidences, in which case you may substitute independent materials in consultation with the Program Director.

3. Note that Taskstream does not have the reputation of being easy to use, though people do overstate its difficulty. In particular, it is very important that you release materials once they are uploaded, so that they can be assessed. If you are given a choice of to whom to submit materials, be sure to put the name of the Program Director. The access code for the DRF MAT New ITP Begins Fall 2019 is ITP-MAT-F19.

4. When at all possible, it is recommended that you submit files as PDFs or in Microsoft Word format. If you use a Macintosh computer, the system print utility will allow you to save any file as a PDF. For Windows users, current versions of Microsoft Office contain the PDF format as a Save As option. For sample student work, transcripts, signed forms, and the like, most scanners will allow you to save in the PDF format; note that black and white scans generally yield more manageable files.
