One day a hare was bragging about how 
fast he could run. He bragged and 
bragged and even laughed at the 
tortoise, who was so slow. The 
tortoise stretched out his long neck 
and challenged the hare to a race, 
which, of course, made the hare laugh. 
"My, my, what a joke!" thought the 
hare. "A race, indeed, a race. Oh! 
what fun! My, my! a race, of course, 
Mr. Tortoise, we shall race!" said the 
hare. The forest animals met and 
mapped out the course. The race begun, 
and the hare, being such a swift 
runner, soon left the tortoise far 
behind. About halfway through the 
course, it occurred to the hare that 
he had plenty of time to beat the slow 
trodden tortoise. "Oh, my!" thought 
the hare, "I have plenty of time to 
play in the meadow here." And so he 
did. After the hare finished playing, 
he decided that he had time to take a 
little nap. "I have plenty of time to 
beat that tortoise," he thought. And 
he cuddle up against a tree and dozed. 
The tortoise, in the meantime, 
continued to plod on, albeit, it ever 
so slowly. He never stopped, but took 
one good step after another. The hare 
finally woke from his nap. "Time to 
get going," he thought. And off he 
went faster than he had ever run 
before! He dashed as quickly as anyone 
ever could up to the finish line, 
where he met the tortoise, who was 
patiently awaiting his arrival.

WPM Test & Typing Speed Test For Kids

Check Speed And Accuracy For 60 Seconds

In WPM (words per minute), a kid's speed and accuracy in typing are tested. Usually, the WPM test is done for 1 minute to check the typing ability of a person. For a standard typist, between 38 and 40 words per minute is the average WPM. This translates to 190 to 200 characters per minute (CPM). Skilled typists, however, type a lot more, averaging between 65 and 75 WPM.

If the kid is a beginner, a WPM test can greatly examine the child's skill before practicing typing properly. The more the kid practice typing with typing games and typing lessons, the more their typing speed is checked, the greater their WPM score would be.

In taking the WPM test, feedback is given, which the kid will know if how many keystrokes were typed, how many strokes were right, and how many strokes were wrong.

Moreover, in the WPM typing test, the kids' gross speeds are measured. After the 60 seconds test, the kid earns a free certificate, which gives him an option to print it or Typing Practice more to get a higher score.
