The SPEAK® Testing Program was instituted at West Virginia University requiring that all instructional personnel be proficient in spoken English.
The SPEAK Testing Program establishes this proficiency for teaching assistants and is administered by the trained staff in West Virginia University’s Intensive English Program.
All prospective teaching assistants or associates whose native language is not English are required to take and pass the SPEAK Test before they can assume teaching responsibilities.
