Complete the appropriate section when a proficiency has been satisfied. Fields marked with a * are required.

Writing Proficiency

This is satisfied by producing a peer-reviewed conference paper, or the equivalent (a written report that at least two SCS faculty certify as being of conference-paper quality).

Presentation Proficiency

This is satisfied by the oral presentation of a conference paper, or the equivalent (an oral presentation that at least two SCS faculty certify as being of conference-talk quality).

Programming Proficiency

This is satisfied by demonstrating competence in computer programming of language technology; this is normally satisfied in the course of the student's research and/or project work.

Teaching Proficiency

This is satisfied by a successful Teaching Assistantship (TA), as determined by the faculty member for whom the student serves as TA. Two (2) TA-ships are required, due to an SCS-level requirement. Typically, one of these will be for an undergraduate class, and one for a graduate-level class. Also, one of the two TA-ships may be in some form of pre-approved "alternate service," such as a v-unit. The program coordinator must be notified in advance of a TA-ship or it may not count.
