Dundon, F. J.; Holliday, P. M. – Aspects of Educational and Training Technology Series, 1992
To determine if initial keyboard training resulted in more effective use of capital investment, two groups were tested: one received keyboard training using a manual typewriter, the other trained in word processing on a computer. Keyboarding was tested before and after and student attitudes were surveyed. Concluded that keyboard training is cost…

Kercher, Lydia; McClurg, Patricia – 1985
This paper explores the issue of how, when, and where to teach keyboarding at the elementary school level through a review of the keyboarding literature and descriptions of three studies conducted with fifth grade students in the laboratory school at the University of Wyoming. The literature review briefly summarizes findings on the following…

Ball, Stanley – 1985
In all likelihood, computer use in early childhood will continue to increase. However, there is reason for concern about how computers will be placed into classrooms, what activities will be chosen for children, what interactions will take place, and whether these interactions will consider appropriate readiness and development levels. Computers…

Mikkelsen, Vincent P.; Gerlach, Gail – 1988
This study tested the effectiveness of a typing tutorial in teaching keyboarding skills to middle- and upper-grade elementary school students in both supervised and unsupervised environments. Subjects were 56 students enrolled in grades three through six, who were divided into two groups, supervised and unsupervised, and subdivided by grade (third…

Hall, Carol S. – 1985
Keyboarding was taught to a group of 26 fourth- and fifth-grade students in a self-contained classroom by an elementary classroom teacher using an Apple IIe microcomputer and two software programs: "Gregg Personal Keyboarding" and "Typing Tutor II." Intervention spanned 52 class days, including pre-, mid-, and posttest days,…

Borthwick, Arlene Grambo – 1993
Forty-one research studies completed between 1929 and 1983 investigated the effects of typewriting on the development of children's language arts skills. Information about each of the studies was entered in a Lotus 1-2-3 database containing 43 fields. Effect sizes were calculated for 21 studies. The collected evidence suggests a small positive…

Saka, Thomas – 1986
Five adults with developmental disabilities participated in a keyboard skills training program employing color coded keys and typing drills. Through typing skills, the subjects were taught basic computer operations such as taking disk directories, loading programs and executing the programs. Repetitious learning was the model used. Data collected…

Stoecker, John W. – 1988
This study assessed the status of touch-typing in school districts in Oregon and Washington, and developed and field tested a comprehensive training program designed to prepare elementary teachers to teach touch-typing skills to elementary students. There were four major activities: (1) a questionnaire was developed and mailed to a random sample…

Malekian, Donia; Bailey, James; Kennedy, Gregor; de Barba, Paula; Nawaz, Sadia – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019
This work aims to characterize students' writing processes using keystroke logs and understand how the extracted characteristics influence the text quality at specific moments of writing. Earlier works have proposed predictive models characterizing students' writing processes and mainly rely on distribution-based measures of pauses obtained from…

Lang, David; Stenhaug, Ben; Kizilcec, Rene – Grantee Submission, 2019
This research evaluates the psychometric properties of short-answer response items under a variety of grading rules in the context of a mobile learning platform in Africa. This work has three main findings. First, we introduce the concept of a differential device function (DDF), a type of differential item function that stems from the device a…

Murphy, Donna – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Note-taking is a complex task that involves simultaneously listening, observing, reading, coding, and recording information for future recall and learning. Note-taking is intrinsic to academia and has been a tool used by students in the schoolhouse from elementary school through college as a way to store information for future recall. Research…

Gerlach, Gail J. – 1987
This investigation of the effect of typing skill on using a word processor for composition hypothesized that students who had learned keyboarding skills would: (1) write longer essays when using a word processor; (2) revise their essays more when using a word processor; (3) feel more positive about typing when using a word processor than students…

Olney, Andrew M.; Bakhtiari, Dariush; Greenberg, Daphne; Graesser, Art – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2017
Adaptive learning technologies hold great promise for improving the reading skills of adults with low literacy, but adults with low literacy skills typically have low computer literacy skills. In order to determine whether adults with low literacy skills would be able to use an intelligent tutoring system for reading comprehension, we adapted a 44…

Allen, Laura K.; Jacovina, Matthew E.; Dascalu, Mihai; Roscoe, Rod D.; Kent, Kevin M.; Likens, Aaron D.; McNamara, Danielle S. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2016
This study investigates how and whether information about students' writing can be recovered from basic behavioral data extracted during their sessions in an intelligent tutoring system for writing. We calculate basic and time-sensitive keystroke indices based on log files of keys pressed during students' writing sessions. A corpus of prompt-based…
