Tk20 Use Ending After Spring 2021 Semester

At the end of the Spring 2021 semester, Northwest Education Students will stop using TK20. We are in the process of migrating all remaining assessments in Tk20 to other online systems.

What does this mean for our students?

If a student is planning to student teach during the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semesters, they will still be required to have a Tk20 subscription. If students plan to student teach after the end of Spring 2021, they will not be required to purchase a subscription.

The entire timeline is listed below:

Tk20 Transition Timeline

Tk20 Required by Students for: Fall 2020 Spring 2021 Summer 2021
Admission to Teacher Education Not Required Not Required Not Required
Admission to Student Teaching TK20 Required Not Required Not Required
Student Teaching TK20 Required TK20 Required Not Required

So, as of fall of 2020, students will not be required to purchase a Tk20 subscription to be admitted to teacher education. But, they will need to purchase a subscription to apply for student teaching for Spring 2021 or to student teach in 2021. Then, in spring 2021, only those student teaching that semester will be required to have a Tk20 subscription. As of summer 2021, no students will be required to have a Tk20 subscription.
