Speak Exam Information for International Teaching Assistants
SPEAK (Speaking Proficiency English Assessment Kit) is a test for evaluating the English speaking ability of non-native speakers of English.

The test is offered at the end of each semester. Special arrangements are made with the departments when new graduate students are admitted to a program. The SPEAK test can be administered at the beginning of the semester when new students are admitted to a program. Professors or TA coordinators should contact Dr. Mendoza to make arrangements. If you are a new student, please contact your department to inquire about the schedule for the test.
There is no charge for the first time that a student takes the SPEAK test. However, if a student must take the SPEAK test a second time or more, the student must then pay $70.00 for each subsequent test.
