The Center for Assessment and Accreditation (CAA) compiles, manages and analyzes data using the online assessment database, Tk20, and produces routine and custom data reports for programs, faculty or administrative needs. Every candidate in an initial or advanced program that leads to certification by the State of Texas or prepares candidates for K-12 professions is required to purchase a TK20 account, a one-time cost.
The system provides a secure web-based site for assignments to be submitted, reviewed or scored, with feedback immediately available to the candidate. Information about progression through the program and candidate transition point status is always available. The system accommodates portfolio collections which may be viewed by candidates and their potential employers from anywhere in the world.
The CAA provides reports for internal program and unit improvement as well as reports used for accreditation. Tk20 facilitates the centralization of all institutional data, provides integrated data collection, the generation of reports, and the program assessment to ensure continuous improvement.
Data are collected, analyzed and evaluated. Follow the links on the navigation pane to learn more about the data management system for the Educator Preparation Program in the College of Education.
