Keyboarding


Students in grades 1-8 will be learning how to type.  This is a necessary skill for them to learn, which will benefit them in taking certain tests on the computer, and in the future, typing essays and research papers.  Some of the new standardized testing for grades 3-8 will require typing answers for certain questions on the computer.  This test is timed, so knowing how to type, will help them complete the test to the best of their ability in a timely manner.

Your help would be awesome!  If your child is to be successful in learning how to type.  He or she can practice for just 10 minutes each day.  Below is the information needed to use the typing.com program along with some keyboarding sites that can help improve their skills.  Thank you!

  1. Students login by going to: typing.com
  2. Student login: Is their given typing web username, some students taped this to their headphones.If they can’t remember this, shoot me an email lozanojj@canoncityschools.org and I will send you their username.  Or just have them click on the start typing button and choose a lesson to practice.

Figuring your Keyboarding Test Scores (KTS)- 3 Tests are worth 20 points each

Example:  8th Grade-I will take the WPM and add 60 to that number because by the end of 8th grade you should be typing a minimum of 40 WPM.  (40 + 60 = 100) divide by 5 then subtract accuracy for final score.

3rd grade: (WPM + 88)/5 = KTS- Accuracy

4th grade: (WPM + 85)/5= KTS- Accuracy

5th grade: (WPM + 80)/5 = KTS- Accuracy

6th grade: (WPM + 76)/5 = KTS- Accuracy

7th grade: (WPM + 65)/5 = KTS- Accuracy

8th grade: (WPM + 60)/5 = KTS- Accuracy
