GW has selected TaskStream’s Accountability Management System (AMS) to coordinate our outcomes assessment and continuous improvement processes. The software is available to all programs and departments at GW at no charge to the user.

TaskStream is a portal designed to help programs and departments at GW manage content, resources, and communication for all assessment processes. The portal consists of workspaces that correspond to reporting requirements for courses, programs and departments. There is one workspace for each department and program to keep track of the annual assessment reports that are required for GW’s Middle States accreditation. A second workspace is designed to fit the Academic Program Review (APR) guidelines and serves as a place to collect, store, and use data required for the department’s APR. A third workspace, organized by course, is for the annual assessment of general education (G-PAC) courses.

Workspaces can be accessed by multiple members of a school, department, or program. Each program determines who has access to the workspace and decides the types of access each person has (e.g., read only, add or edit content). Also included is a discussion area that provides a place for you and your colleagues to offer suggestions for and insights about the content.

More information about the AMS system in TaskStream can be found on their website. To get more specific information about TaskStream at GW, to schedule a demonstration, or to set up an account, contact Alex Feldman at alexmf@gwu.edu or (202) 994-0933.
