6th Grade Keyboard Test-Outs

Posted on:

Keyboarding test-outs for 6th graders, and any returning new-8th grade students (who didn’t test-out this past spring), is scheduled for Monday, June 30th from 10:00 to 1:00 in room 209.

Timed writings are three minutes (3) in length and in order to pass this test you are required to have a speed of at least 35 word per minute with no more than 6 errors. You are allowed to take the timed writing multiple times, but if your first attempt is less than 25 word per minute your chances of passing are not that great.

To prepare for this you may want to practice by keying in straight copy text in three minute intervals. Using programs like Microsoft Word you can easily check to see how many words you typed in three minutes. To get the words per minute score you divide the total words by 3.

Have a Great Summer!

Posted on:

We look forward to seeing our 7th and 8th graders back again in the fall, and also meeting our new 7th graders coming in! School starts on Tuesday, August 26th. Have a great summer!
