You must have acceptable technique to pass Keyboarding 1!  If you do not pass this Technique Check, you will be asked to repeat it again after Lesson 20.
(Specific information is intended as an example only.)
  You are required to view Orientation to Technique Checks to understand how to prepare for a technique check and how to use MAP+ and Skillbuilding routines to remediate your keystroking weaknesses.

Before you come in for an in-person Technique Check, perform a self-assessment using this form and use the remediation list to resolve any areas of technique that need improvement so that you are prepared to pass your in-person Technique Check.
  I will use the Technique Check Form below to assess your technique as I watch you type the paragraph shown at the bottom of this page. Download these documents to prepare:

Lesson 11-I, 2-Minute Timed Writing
TW Goal: 19/5e

  • You will now advance from 1-minute to 2-minute timed writings. Your error limit increases from 3 to 5, which means you are not penalized for making any errors up to 5. Try to type at a steady, comfortable rate as you progress through the first  minute of the timed writing and then to extend that effort for 1 additional minute. Your initial goal should be to maintain the speed and accuracy levels that you achieved on the 1-minute timed writing.
  • After 5 errors, you may correct errors or just try to slow down for control. If correcting errors after you have reached your maximum limit helps you relax, please do so. If correcting errors distracts you or slows you down too much, try to slow down slightly for control.
