Oooops.  Sorry for the last sent message, list.  Must’ve had a senior moment.


I usually tell my middle school students that we’re shooting for 30 words/minute with good accuracy and good hand/eye/posture.

We use a program called MicroType that’s a little dated but fine.  We also use .  There are a couple fun typing games (bubbles and pacman).

Subject: how fast should highschoolers type


How fast and how accurate should highschoolsers be typing at?


Also does anybody know of some good webbased type testing sites.  I googled a few but didn't know if someone had experience with one in particular.
