READING SUFFICIENCY

Oklahoma Reading Sufficiency

The purpose of the Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA) is to ensure that all Oklahoma students are reading on grade level at the end of third grade (a critical juncture when students go from learning to read to reading to learn). RSA supports Oklahoma children in Kindergarten through third grade.

Typing

Technique

Students learn blind typing. The basic principle is to practice repetitive movements without looking at the keys. It enables students to type at faster speed than visual typing. Furthermore, students make fewer mistakes and get less tired because they do not have to track both the text and the keyboard. 

One way to reach the target speed is to practice a good position and to develop a rhythm: each letter is typed within the same amount of time. The starting position for both hands is on the home row keys (asdf and jkl;), barely touching the keys, the thumbs rest on the space bar. For typing letters outside the basic position, use a short stroke, as if the key was hot, before returning to the basic position.

It is crucial to practice the correct letters first rather than the speed because correcting mistakes is time consuming. Accuracy comes before speed.With proper practice it becomes a reflex to hit the correct keys while significantly increasing the speed.

What's a Good Typing Speed
