Language Screening is a way to assure that International Teaching Assistants (ITAs) have the needed English language abilities to present information, read, and interact successfully with undergraduate students at the University of Kentucky. It does not screen for teaching ability.
To learn more about the language screenings, see http://www.research.uky.edu/gs/StudentDevelopment/TA_ITA_language.html. This link includes general information about the screening process, general tips for success, and a list of frequently asked questions about the screenings.
