  • Decreased Paper Trail

  • Reporting Ability

Field experience
Field Experience


  • Program Improvement

    • Collect assessments used by candidates and clinical faculty to determine areas that need improvement

    • Identify points at which students are dropping out of the program

    • Systematically study changes to ensure that program improvement is occurring

Field experience1
Field Experience


  • Day to Day Operational Needs

    • Eliminates data entry

    • Reports that identify eligible teacher candidates at each transition point

    • Forecasting reports

Field experience2
Field Experience


  • Accreditation

    • Collect comprehensive assessments from admissions to student certification

    • Demonstrate diversity of field placements

    • Align assessments with professional, state, and institutional standards


Benefits to UWF:

  • Tracking student progress

    • How many students are in each stage?

    • At what point do students drop out?

    • How long does it take for students to get through each stage?

  • Necessary for program improvement and accreditation


Benefits to Students:

Faculty Artifacts


  • Allows UWF to collect specific information from all users of our system in addition to our SIS data

  • Provides data that can be compiled or aggregated for accreditation, assessment, promotion, tenure etc.

  • Provides a mechanism of collecting information that is not easily accessible

  • Provides standardization of information

    All of these contribute to effective data capture for accreditation and assessment needs.

Examples of Faculty Artifacts:

  • Syllabi

  • Curriculum Vita

  • Dissertation Committee Documentation



  • Increases variety of measures at your disposal

  • Survey large groups

  • Access groups that do not assemble regularly

  • Aggregate results due to an identical instrument

  • Eliminate fields necessary in paper-based surveys

  • Convenient for respondents

  • Cost-effective method requiring fewer resources


  • Rule of Thumb:use surveys to collect data that cannot be obtained through other functionalities in Tk20.

  • Alumni activity surveys

  • Employer satisfaction surveys

  • Graduate exit surveys

  • Administrative/Non-Academic Department surveys

  • Instant access to data as it is entered, both aggregate and comprehensive

Course evaluations1
Course Evaluations

A set of pre-generated reports is available for use the minute course evaluations are sent:

  • People with Pending Course Evaluations

  • People with Complete Course Evaluations

  • Aggregated Results of All Responses

  • Aggregated Results by Course

  • Aggregated Results by Section

  • Aggregated Results by Term

  • Aggregated Results by Instructor

Course based assessments1
Course-Based Assessments

  • Collect evidences that document students knowledge, skills, and dispositions

  • Generate reports for program improvement and accreditation needs

  • Align assignments and assessments to standards


  • Disaggregate by program, campus (online, face-to-face), course, section, instructor, etc.

  • Enrollment, recent graduates, active (not enrolled)

  • Demographics (student and faculty)

  • Field Experience evaluations by course, program, unit

  • FTCE, GRE, FELE exam tracking

  • Diversity of Field Experience Placements
