Frequently Asked Questions (Introduction to Tk20)
What is Tk20?
Tk20 is a comprehensive data management system that allows students to be active online participants in multiple areas of their college experience including: course instruction, field experience, learning outcomes assessment, academic advising and career portfolio management. The Tk20 system is utilized by several other Colleges of Education around the country including Arizona State University and The Ohio State University. The UNM College of Education first implemented Tk20 in the spring semester of 2012.
