Keyboarding Skills . . .

Are we providing our children with the opportunity to develop their typing skills?


The average keyboarding speed for an adult is around 40 words per minute (w.p.m).

Typing Test allows you to take a free test to assess your typing speed. The test itself may be used as a personal challenge for individual pupils, or something that you wish to develop with groups of children. The games can then be used to develop the typing speed of learners.

CLICK HERE for games that are available on the Typing Test website that can be used to develop the typing skills of learners.
