How is our test different?

No random texts for you to copy…

you think up what to type – just like your emails, reports & notes in real life

No clock ticking away…

…you can take your time, or you can rush; it’s your choice – just like in real life

No beeps/red text if you mistype…

you notice your errors, or not; you fix them, or not: it’s your responsibility – just like in real life

So balancing Speed & Accuracy is your job…

…just like the typing you do every day, in other words… just like in real life!

The DIFFERENCE with our Tester is…

While you balance Speed & Accuracy in a realistic task – you can measure & record them!

This means you can quantify what most people consider normally in very vague terms (see below)

The plague of ‘vague’

Far too many people say things like “I’m quite fast” or “I’m too slow”
– without knowing exactly HOW fast or slow they are and how their speed compares with others

And similarly, many people consider themselves “fairly accurate” or think they’re “always making mistakes”
– but they don’t really know HOW accurate they are and whether that’s above or below average

Not knowing these things can leave you accepting the status quo, and ignoring the possibility & potential that improving both might bring.
