Tk 20, the School of Education Unit Assessment, and Accountability System
Jean Ragin, Ed.D.

In 2013, Coppin State University’s School of Education selected Tk20 as its Unit Assessment and Accountability System (UAAS). Prior to 2013, the School of Education used several assessment systems such as Planet Coppin, One Note, Share Point, and Blackboard Grade book. It also enlisted individual staff members to gather and compile hardcopies of student assignments and electronic portfolios. But despite these various systems and supports, they could not generate the level of data-based reports the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) required to demonstrate compliance for Standard 2. Standard 2 requires an assessment system and unit evaluation (NCATE, 2008). Students have access to Tk20 and can use it for seven years to build their professional, electronic portfolio, and career advancement.
