The study specifically compared two different word-count indices for speed and accuracy (the 5-stroke word and the 1.4-syllable standard word) on a timing administered to 114 speech recognition students measured at 1-, 2-,…

Hemby, K. Virginia – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1997
A group of 431 business communication students included 199 nontraditional students and 362 who had prior keyboarding instruction. Keyboarding skill and computer anxiety were correlated. There were no differences in keyboarding skills of traditional and nontraditional students. Those with no previous instruction had less computer anxiety. (SK)

Sormunen, Carolee – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1993
A learning style inventory and keyboarding pre/posttest administered to 48 fourth graders showed persistence to be the only learning style factor related to achievement. Pretest score was related to final achievement, indicating that natural kinesthetic ability may affect keyboarding speed. (SK)

A national survey of 753 elementary teachers found that only 13 percent (95) teach keyboarding, there is insufficient time for mastery of touch typing, access to equipment is limited, teachers do not have thorough knowledge of theory related to psychomotor skill development, and no formal evaluation is used.

Davison, Leslie J. – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1990
One group of secondary keyboarding students was taught on typewriters and switched to microcomputers after six weeks, the other used microcomputers first, then typewriters. Using computers, students showed faster completion times and fewer typographical errors. Transfer from computers to typewriters slowed times and increased errors. Overall,…

Blaszczynski, Carol; Joyce, Marguerite Shane – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1996
Responses from 157 of 193 business teachers who teach keyboarding indicated that 78.7% were aware of cumulative trauma disorder and 22% had experienced it. Only 13% of classrooms were equipped with wrist rests. About 53% teach techniques to reduce incidence, but 20% did not know whether they taught preventive measures. (SK)

Joyner, Randy L.; And Others – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1993
Analysis of over 750 timed writings of postsecondary keyboarding students found speeds ranging from 39-49 gross words per minute. They left uncorrected one-half to three-quarters of an error per minute. Accuracy and speed standards representing realistic conditions using electronic equipment should now be developed. (SK)

Maxam, Susan E.; Stocker, H. Robert – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1993
In 18 beginning computer classes of middle and high school students, 409 pre- and postsemester keyboarding timings were taken. Significant differences in grades were related to developmental phase (those in cognitive or overlap phases had lower grades than those in associative phase--over 25 words per minute). Students showed significant progress…
