FAQ about Taskstream and reporting hours (Kronos)

What forms do I submit after I visit my student and/or site?

All evaluations are done online. It is not necessary to complete a Midterm or Final (these are done by Master Teachers). Your student(s) information and observation forms are located on Taskstream. No paper documents are submitted to ensure a smooth process and to keep our office paperless.

How do I utilize TaskStream and who can help me with it?

Upon being hired, the Director of Clinical Experience should familiarize you with Taskstream. However, for further questions you can call the Taskstream help line at 800-311-5656 or contact Heidi Sublette at: Heidi.Sublette@pepperdine.edu.

Do we get mileage for driving to our school sites?

The first observation visit is considered your office. You can claim mileage for any schools you visit after that initial visit. If you only have one student to supervise you get no mileage. If you do report mileage, please download the form here: Mileage Log. You also need to include a word doc with the entire google map link showing your route to and from your first site to the next.

How do I log my hours and how do I get paid?

You are paid hourly and must enter your hours worked into Kronos at https://mytime.pepperdine.edu
Your payroll schedule, as well as deadlines for when hours must be submitted, can be viewed here: Biweekly Payroll Schedule. Please review the following document that explains how to record your hours: Kronos User Guide. If you are unable to access your Kronos Login, please contact your appropriate Payroll Specialist to be sure you're set up in our system correctly: Contact Payroll. For additional questions, please contact our Help Desk at 866-767-8623.
