UAB School of Education faculty are at the leading edge of investigating some of today’s most vexing challenges in areas such as exercise science, health disparities, language/literacy development, urban education, and special education.  The School of Education includes several centers that help to support this work: The Center for Educational Accountability and the Center for Urban Education.

TaskStream is an online system that the UAB School of Education uses for student electronic portfolio development. Faculty is able to critique, score, and gather data using submissions through the electronic portfolio. Each portfolio is tailored to specific program areas (Collaborative Teaching, Early Childhood/Elementary, Health, Physical Education, Secondary, & Alternative 5th Year/Masters). This is necessary to keep accurate records for the school, NCATE, and the Alabama Department of Education. Data will be used to develop programs and enhance instruction.
