How do we measure
a typing speed?
We measure your typing speed in WPM (words per minute). It is a calculation of how fast you type words with no typos. We mean by the "word" an average of 5 characters including spaces. We measure gross speed in our typing test.
However, we don't allow you to continue typing if you have a typo in your test. You have to fix it to proceed the WPM test.
