What is TK20?

Tk20 is an online tool by Watermark the College of Education and Human Sciences (COEHS) at UNA chose to use for students to assist them as they prepare to become professionals, educators, and leaders. Tk20 helps students record field experience gained while completing their clinical training, build portfolios for employment and/or continued education, log time spent on various educational activities, and to help with state certification. It is also used by the COEHS to help collect, manage, analyze, and report data needed for program improvement, and to satisfy the reporting demands for accreditations at state, regional, and national levels.


To ensure that COEHS graduates are prepared to work in their chosen professions, as well as to satisfy all assessment-related requirements of accrediting and approval bodies for quality programs, the COEHS conducts systematic assessment of candidates, programs, and operations. Assessment requirements to maintain state approvals and national accreditation are very specific, quite extensive, and complex. Several tools are used by the COEHS to manage assessment plans including Tk20, a system that allows students to submit a variety of assessments (course embedded assignments, field experience evaluations, observations, portfolios, etc.) that are used to measure student performance. These assessments are then connected to other student performance data such as scores on entrance and certification tests taken outside the COEHS and grades in courses. Programs then use these multiple sources of data to examine and improve courses and make curricular and procedural revision that are needed to improve student learning.
