What is Tk20?

Tk20 is the Department of Education and School Psychology’s (DESP) online data management system used for candidate and program assessment. Tk20 is a comprehensive planning, data gathering, and reporting system designed for managing assessment activities, both academic and non-academic. The DESP uses data from Tk20 to ensure our programs align with state and national standards.

Tk20 allows students/candidates/interns to:

  • Create and submit key assignments online.
  • Facilitate collaborative evaluations online between instructors, cooperating teachers and students.
  • Create electronic portfolios document course work.
  • Keep records of field experiences and assignments, student teaching, clinical practice and internships.
  • Submit forms online: applications to pre-student teaching, student teaching and other field experiences.
