Tk20 is the College of Education's online assessment management platform.  Tk20 provides transparency to students and the visibility to all assessments submitted therein.  Tk20 further empowers the college to collect and report on various measures of program, faculty, and student performance to be used in program self-improvement and accreditation.


Tk20 is a required tool for numerous programs in the College of Education, including all teacher preparation programs, Educational Leadership, and Counseling and Student Personnel.  When admitted to an eligible program students will receive a 10-year subscription and be assessed a one-time fee of $110.
