Submit a Taskstream assignment in Canvas

  • Taskstream is only available to students enrolled in the Schools of Education on the IUPUI, South Bend, and Southeast campuses.
  • If you receive a message indicating that your account has expired when you attempt to log in, contact the Taskstream Coordinator for your campus. If you are currently enrolled at IU and covered under the current license agreement with Taskstream, your account will be reactivated.

If you are in a course or program that uses Taskstream for assessment or other purposes, you may be asked to submit a Taskstream assignment within Canvas. You can access Taskstream assignments from the Canvas Assignments tool, or from the Modules tool if your instructor has placed the assignment in a module.

To access and submit a Taskstream assignment:

  1. Log into Canvas and navigate to the course containing the Taskstream assignment.
  2. In the course navigation menu, if you access your assignments via the Modules tool, click Modules. Otherwise, click Assignments.
  3. Locate the assignment associated with Taskstream in the assignment list.
  4. Click the title of the assignment to open it. Depending on how your instructor configured the assignment, it may open within the Canvas wrapper or it may open in a new window. You'll see the "Taskstream Submission" screen listing one or more requirements for the assignment. Click the title of a requirement to read the directions and submit your work.

  5. When you open the requirement, you'll be on the Directions tab. Read the directions, and then click the Work tab.
  6. Click the tab that corresponds to the type of work you wish to submit, + Attachments, + Text & Image, or + Video.
  7. From the "Add/Edit" content screen, browse for or enter your content. When you're finished, click SAVE AND RETURN to return to the Work tab.
