LAT User Guides

Home > Integration


LAT has several different integration options available including:

  • SSO (Single-Sign On)
  • EDH (LMS Integration)
  • Web Services
  • Turnitin
  • TS Export


SSO allows users from an institution to seamlessly access their Taskstream LAT by Watermark account from another portal or LMS.

The Enterprise Data Hub (EDH) is an infrastructure that allows an institution to get data from an external Learning Management system (LMS) into Taskstream LAT by Watermark for the purposes of streamlining the user experience between the two.

This data includes user, course section or enrollment data, which enables a more seamless experience for students to submit work to Taskstream LAT by Watermark while still logged in the local Learning Management System (LMS).  The integration allows for auto account creation if the connecting user does not have a pre-existing Taskstream LAT by Watermark account and auto-enrollment into the DRF program, all with the click of a link embedded within the LMS course. In addition, EDH also allows an institution to enable grade transfer from Taskstream LAT by Watermark back into the LMS grade book.

Taskstream LAT by Watermark has an integration with iParadigm's TurnItIn offering that allows faculty staff and/or students to get an originality report/score within the system for a submitted document.

Furthermore, faculty can also use the GradeMark feature to markup and add comments to a submitted document within the TurnItIn Document Viewer.

TS Export

Taskstream LAT by Watermark's XML Export is a database export utility that provides a comprehensive output of assessment data from your institution’s DRF Programs.  In addition to evaluation results, the export includes student data (including name, student IDs, etc), history logs of all submission and evaluation events, rubric scores for all rubric criteria, and descriptions of student work.  (Note: Uploaded artifacts are not included as part of this export utility).  

Additionally, the assessment data is tagged according to the DRF structure to which it is associated, so that institutions can easily identify how work submissions and evaluation data are connected to the categories and requirements of their DRF structures (e.g. by standard, competency, course, phase, etc.).

The XML extract contains customized tags that enable transmission, validation, and interpretation of data between Taskstream LAT by Watermark and your organization.  The schema closely mirrors the data structures that are represented on the interfaces of the site. Therefore, it is highly recommended that people who work with this schema are familiar with the Taskstream LAT by Watermark platform, in particular the DRF Assessment system that includes concepts such as DRF templates, evaluation methods, role definitions, and rubric elements (criteria, performance levels, etc.).  A typical integration effort would include a developer, who understands how to extract the XML data and to push it into a downstream system, and an assessment coordinator, who understands how the different DRF programs are structured and what evaluation data must be captured for downstream reporting.
