TEP Application Instructions

Teacher Education Program Application Instructions

The Radford University Teacher Education Program (TEP) uses Tk20 as the application and assessment platform for students entering and completing the TEP.  You will create an account in Tk20 when you submit your first TEP application.  You will continue working in Tk20 for other TEP application requirements.  When you earn your Teacher Candidate status and begin your field experience, you will use Tk20 for evaluations and assessments along with your University Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher(s).
