RE: SPEAK Test Dates and EAP Course Offerings for Summer B 2010
All international graduate students whose first language is not English (official first language of home country) and who may be appointed as teaching assistants (with lecturing/lab responsibilities) need to have a passing score (45 or higher) on either a TSE (Test of Spoken English -- administered by ETS), a UF SPEAK test (administered on the UF campus), or a TOEFL-IBT Speaking test (23+). In addition, any international graduate teaching assistant whose first language is not English who scores a 45 or 50 on a SPEAK/TSE test, or 23 - 27 on a TOEFL-IBT Speaking section and who is appointed to teach (with lecturing/lab responsibilities) must enroll, during their first semester teaching, in a 3-credit EAP 5836 course. International graduate students appointed as TA-G (grading and office hour responsibilities only) are neither required to pass a SPEAK test nor eligible to enroll in EAP 5836. SPEAK test dates, times and locations for the Summer B 2010 semester are as follows:
SPEAK Test Dates - Summer B 2010
21 July 2010 - 6:00 pm, 1317 Turlington Hall
