Performance  Assessment Submission: Business graduate, IT graduate and IT undergraduate Students


Students in most Business graduate, IT graduate, and IT undergraduate programs will be transitioning to the integrated process for submission of performance assessments. During the transition, students may be submitting performance assessments in Taskstream or in their course. 


To identify if you are part of the integrated submission process access your Course via the Student Portal and navigate to the assessment specific information. If you do not see a Taskstream button but something similar to the screenshot below please use this page for instructions and information on how to submit your performance assessment.

Submission Process





Why is WGU making a change to the submission process?


We developed our new experience to give you a better experience for submitting your performance assessments. You will be able to do the following:


- Navigate more easily with a more logical workflow

- See the status of your evaluation of your course

- Enjoy a more cohesive and attractive interface design

- Use the WGU Mobile app to review your tasks and evaluation scores (integration coming soon)


What if I am in the Business graduate, IT graduate, or IT undergraduate programs but I am still seeing Taskstream as my option for submitting my performance assessments?


Students that have already activated a course in Taskstream prior to the move to the new experience will need to submit via Taskstream.  Also, some select programs were not migrated to the new experience at this time but will be migrated on a future date. If you have questions about whether you should have access to the new experience please reach out to your Course Instructor.


Will my Course Instructor and Program Mentor be able to see my evaluation report?


WGU Faculty will continue to have the necessary visibility to assist students with any possible revisions.


Performance Assessment Details


Will the performance assessments be different than the Taskstream version?


The assessment tasks are identical to the tasks in Taskstream. The directions and requirements have not been altered, and the evaluations will be completed by the same qualified evaluators.  


What if I already submitted an assessment using Taskstream?


Students who have started an assessment in Taskstream, prior to April 18, 2018, will need to complete the entire assessment, including task revisions, in Taskstream.


Will I submit all my performance assessments using the new process?


All courses in the current term will use the new process by the end of the day on April 18, 2018. The exception is for courses where the student has already started using Taskstream; there will be no change if the student is already using Taskstream. Courses in future terms will use the new process.



What if I have an assessment still in Taskstream that I want to be moved to the new submission process?


Tasks not yet submitted via Taskstream can be moved to the new process by contacting the Assessment Services team to request the move. Students who have already submitted tasks in Taskstream will continue to use Taskstream for the course.


How long will it take my assessments to be evaluated using the new process?


As WGU faculty, our evaluators strive to be accurate, fair, helpful and quick. We will notify you via email and WGU notification when the evaluation is complete. We strive to provide evaluations within 72 hours.
