Resources for Success: Submitting Work in Taskstream

The Performance Assessment submission process for all IT Graduate and all Business Graduate students no longer uses Taskstream as the primary location to submit performance assessments. IT and Business Graduate students will submit performance assessments in their course. Please click here for additional information on that submission process.

 

 

WGU employs the web-based platform Taskstream for students to submit work to performance assessments, which are part of programs of study. Select a topic below for assistance with the submission/resubmission process.
