Directions for Scoring Typing Tests Taken Either on a Typewriter or a Computer.
Kump, Ann
Directions are given for scoring typing tests taken on a typewriter or on a computer using special software. The speed score (gross words per minute) is obtained by determining the total number of strokes typed, and dividing by 25. The accuracy score is obtained by comparing the examinee's test paper to the appropriate scoring key and counting the total number of errors made. Symbols used by the computer to indicate typing errors are illustrated. Definitions are given for the 13 typing rules to be observed in the test, and several examples are given for each rule of the types of errors that can be made. (SLD)
