Requirements:

In order to enroll, qualified students must meet the following requirements:

  • Students must have taken the SPEAK test and have scored 40 or above.
  • Students must ask their department representative to email the ITA Coordinator with their name, ID number, name of department, and a statement that the student is a candidate for a TA position. Email: GlobalLaunch.ITA@asu.edu.
  • Once the correspondence from the department is received, the student will be given a private URL which will allow him/her to register for the course online.

During the semester, each student is required to prepare at least four videotaped micro-teaching presentations that are evaluated by the instructor during tutorial sessions. At the end of the semester, a final videotaped presentation is evaluated by a panel of language and pedagogical experts. Full certification by the panel is equivalent to a score of 55 on the SPEAK test (the minimum score required for an ITA position at ASU), and a rating of certified with qualifications is equivalent to a score of 50 (the minimum score to tutor or be a lab assistant). Those students who do not receive the above ratings are not certified and may retake the SPEAK test, re-enroll in the ITA Teacher Training Course or enroll in one Global Launch eight-week intensive English class.
