The SVSU College of Education uses Tk20 HigherEd™, as a comprehensive data management and learning outcomes assessment system for course and clinical activities related to a degree, endorsement, teacher or administrator certification. The system provides a rich set of tools to help track and enhance our candidates' growth, as well as make our assessment and accountability tasks more succinct. Tk20 enables program candidates to complete course assignments, build professional portfolios, and provide information regarding field experiences, student teaching, and administrative internships. Program candidates will have access to Tk20 for seven (7) years from the date of purchase to build their professional portfolio and support career advancement.
The Tk20 subscription rate is $100.00. Undergraduate and post-baccalaureate teacher education candidates accepted to the Teacher Education Program will be assessed the subscription fee during the first semester they enroll in their professional studies courses.
Graduate level candidates will be assessed the same subscription fee the semester they register for the first time in a master's degree program in either Early Childhood Education, Special Education, K-12 Literacy Specialist, Instructional Technology, or Principalship, or in any one of the special education administration programs, administrator certification programs, or endorsement programs that lead to certification.
The subscription fee will be billed to a candidate's account at the end of the fourth week of class. If using financial aid, contact the SVSU Campus Financial Services Center at 989-964-4900 to ensure that sufficient aid is available to cover the subscription fee. The fee is non-refundable.
Tk20 is a web-based system and can be accessed from a web browser when connected to the internet. We recommend using the latest versions of these browsers for optimal use of Tk20:
