You are supposed to ask them things like Can you lift up your left hand, can you move your right foot.

Where is the pain? Right arm, left arm? Ask them to stick out their tongue. If it goes to the left or right that's a sure sign. Slurred speech is another, as is mental confusion or altered mental status. There can be visual disturbances, headache, difficulty speaking, paralysis or weakness.

If you suspect a stroke call 9-1-1 immediately. The sooner a stroke is treated the better the chance of full recovery.

The above answers are very good, but don't forget that strokes come in many forms and the F.A.S.T criteria are not the only symptoms of strokes. Anything the brain controls can be effected by a stroke.

When I had mine I only had minor weakness on my left side and all my other symptoms, though extreme, were not "classic" stroke symptoms.

I think you are supposed to have them speak a simple sentence.

Strictly speaking, you observe them - but getting them to talk can help diagnose a stroke.

As highlighted by a big campaign in the UK, you must act if you see the following:-

Facial weakness
Arm and leg weakness
Speech problems
Time to call 999 (emergency services)

Note that all these statements spell FAST.

The faster you act, the more of a person you save! :)

*Ask the individual to SMILE.

*Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

*Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE.

If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
After discovering that a group of nonmedical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions.

The absence of these symptoms does not necessarily indicate that a person is NOT having a stroke. It could be extremely dangerous to reach the conclusion that a person did not require medical attention just because he or she could successfully carry out the three steps outlined in the test.
