Our Commitment to Your Success
The College of Education and Social services is committed to providing students and faculty with meaningful technology to assess and demonstrate student learning and growth across out programs. To aid in that effort, we have partnered with Tk20, a comprehensive web-based assessment system, to help all of us - students, faculty, and administrators - manage these tasks.
Our academic programs collect data and feedback in order as part of UVM commitment to clarify learning outcomes, identify relevant assessment questions, gather data and use those data to improve the UVM educational experience, as well as remain accredited by local, regional, and national accreditation associations. Tk20 acts as our information system that helps to organize and analyze this required data. Through Tk20 students can cultivate artifacts that demonstrate learning and professional competencies presented in electronic portfolios either as a required component of licensure programs or professional needs.
Tk20 allows students to develop and submit assignments, track field placements and their status in the program, and access content after graduation. In addition, Tk20 establishes electronic documentation of student outcomes as required by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
Tk20 accounts are accessible for seven years after the purchase date.
