Koorland, Mark A.; And Others – Computers in the Schools, 1996
Discusses keyboarding strategies for elementary school students with learning disabilities using microcomputers. Describes a study that evaluated the efficacy of instruction in systematic scanning against a baseline of no instruction and students' current hunt-and-peck strategy. Repeated measures of typing rates showed no advantages of the…

Hoot, James L. – Childhood Education, 1986
Addresses issues concerning (computer) keyboarding instruction in an attempt to determine if the teaching of such skills to kindergarten and primary grade students should be considered a "must" in the early childhood curriculum or if such practices might have some drawbacks. (BB)

Arnold, Vivian; And Others – Business Education Forum, 1997
More than 700 five-minute timed writings were administered to over 350 postsecondary keyboarding students to determine the gross words a minute achieved and errors not corrected. The data were used to establish grading standards for speed and accuracy. (JOW)

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…

Nichols, Lois Mayer – Computers in the Schools, 1995
Describes a study of elementary school students grades three though six that compared two methods of keyboarding instruction, one that used a tutorial computer program and one that involved the teacher and lesson plans. Results indicate the more teacher-intensive method was more efficient and effective than the computer program. (LRW)

Doughton, Shirley – 1997
This document, which is intended for business education teachers at the postsecondary level, contains the information required to deliver a 1-semester beginning keyboarding course. The course is designed to help students develop a keyboarding speed of 30-40 words per minute and learn to use word processing software to create, store, print, and…

Wallace, Jane Bruner – 2000
Two third grade classes in a private school in North Carolina were given keyboarding instruction using Sunburst's "Type To Learn." So that the effects of color-coding could be examined, one class was given standard keyboards to use (control group), while the other was given keyboards that were color-coded according to proper finger placement…

Sormunen, Carolee – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1986
This study compared two software programs for teaching keyboarding to students in grades four, five, and six and compared speed achievement when students were grouped by sex. One program was an educational game. The other used traditional psychological motor skill development theory as applied to typewriting instruction. Results are reported and…

Wunsch, Daniel R.; Gades, Robert E. – Business Education Forum, 1986
Two articles are presented. The first reviews and suggests procedures for determining appropriate sample sizes and for determining the response representativeness in survey research. The second presents a study designed to determine the effects of computer use on keyboarding technique and skill. (CT)

Ober, Scot – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 1992
This review of 47 publications describes the development of standard and Dvorak keyboards, finding that, although most studies found Dvorak more efficient, many methodological weaknesses appear. Considers that current interest in Dvorak stems from concerns about productivity, workplace safety, and the need for keyboarding speed. (SK)

O'Leary, Mick – Database, 1990
Compares three methods of data entry available to database producers--keyboarding, optical scanners, and electronic input--in terms of turnaround time, accuracy, and cost. It is concluded that, although the trend is toward electronic submission, all three methods will remain as viable options in the foreseeable future. (CLB)

Oehring, Sandee – Instructor, 1993
Presents ideas to help teachers make one-computer classrooms work. Suggestions include making sure the teacher masters the computer, managing computer time, using keyboarding strategies (such as photocopied keyboards for practice), and using time-saving techniques (e.g., previewing programs, pooling resources, and treating computers with care).…
