The Tk20 login for faculty, students, and supervisors is now part of JMU’s 2-factor authentication. You will be required to confirm your login with the DUO app each time you login.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tk20?

Tk20 is the Assessment System used by the College of Education to track student admission, key assessments, monitor students’ progress through their program, and verify licensure eligibility.  Students may use the system in combination with Canvas for online coursework.  All teacher education students use Tk20 during field experiences to document, reflect, and collaborate with cooperating teachers and supervisors.

Need An Account?


Students are given temporary accounts according to their assigned cohort.  In order to become part of an application cohort all students must complete an application form, get it signed by an advisor, and return it to the Education Support Center.  Once the temporary account is expired students are required to purchase an account.


All faculty who teach education courses are given a Tk20 account.  If you have problems logging in please contact


If you are a cooperating teacher or supervisor please refer to your student teaching packet sent from the Education Support Center for login directions.  If you can not login please contact

Why did the login change? DUO?

The login process for Tk20 has changed to allow for DUO 2-factor authentication for all students, faculty, and staff.  When you click on the login button you’ll be taken to an authentication page which will ask for your JMU username and password.  You’ll then have to confirm the login using your mobile phone, tablet, or U2F token.  For more information on 2-factor authentication see the JMU computing page.

Cooperating teachers will continue to use the old method of logging in to Tk20 which does not use DUO.
