Keyboarding & Typing

Keyboarding & Typing




Accuracy is more important than speed.

Typing skills build on layers of knowledge.

How may words per minute (WPM) are expected?

Rule of thumb: 5 WPM per grade level

  • PK-1st Grades: key recognition, QWERTY keyboard and proper ergonomics
  • Grade 2 = 10 WPM emphasis on key recognition
  • Grade 3 = 15 WPM alphabetic keys and common symbols
  • Grade 4 = 20 WPM 10-key, upper case and special keys
  • Grade 5 = 25 WPM Build speed
  • Grades 6-8 = 30-35 WPM
