All prospective International teaching assistants are required to take a SPEAK test upon arrival at ASU, and must attain a score of 55 or better. Students may repeat the SPEAK test to improve their scores, and are encouraged to do so after receiving intensive language training. TA appointments are not renewed beyond the first year without a SPEAK score of 55 or better.
