Northwest Missouri State University

Tk20 Assessment System

Welcome to the Tk20 informational page! Northwest education students must upload certain assignments to the online Tk20 assessment system. This is done to show the development and achievements of our education students to state and federal accrediting bodies. Students can also load videos of field experiences and create an online presence for potential employers on Tk20. Also, Tk20 gives the university the ability to diagnose and resolve any academic deficiencies at the student, program and unit levels.

All Northwest undergraduate and graduate education students are required to purchase a seven year subscription to Tk20. Students may purchase this subscription either at the campus bookstore or online. The cost at the bookstore is $100.00 (plus tax), and students are able to use any normal form of payment and their Bearcat Card as well as order them online from the bookstore website.

If purchased online, the cost is $103 and a credit card is required. In order to purchase Tk20 online, first log in to MyNorthwest here: Once logged in to MyNorthwest, students will click on the small Tk20 logo on the right side of the page, and then click on the large Tk20 logo in the center of the following page. Whether purchased online or at the bookstore, students will always access the system through MyNorthwest.

Training materials are posted in the "student resources"”" section of this website. Additional resources for faculty and student teachers can be found to the left. Tk20 training sessions will be scheduled during the fall and spring trimesters. Information regarding training sessions will be e-mailed. Course instructors will notify students about which assignments must be uploaded to Tk20.

For other questions about the Tk20 system, please contact the Tk20 Unit Administrator, Mike McBride, at 660-562-1089 or
