The Typing Standard drives Typing Tournament Online.
Since the invention of the typewriter in the 1850s the race has been on for typists to type quickly and accurately. To judge the actual speed and accuracy of typist there has long been a need for an impartial umpire. This needs is the same today as always. In Australia that umpire is the Standards Australia.
The Australian Standard – Keyboarding Speed Tests AS 2708-2001 has been produced to provide a uniform method of testing for use by bodies that conduct, assess and certify keyboarding tests for speed and accuracy. The Standard provides a test method that facilitates the comparison of individual keyboarding speeds.
The typing tests within Typing Tournament Online have been based on the key principles articulated in this Australian Standard.
Thousands of schools and hundreds of thousands of students across Australia are learning to touch type using Typing Tournament Online. Many are obtaining typing speeds in excess of 40 WPM.
