Features TypeDojo

The test is automatically activated the moment the user types on the keyboard. At the end of the test, a summary of your activity is displayed. These include Keystrokes, Right Strokes, Wrong Strokes, Error Rate and Gross WPM.

If you have not registered then your score is not recorded, however, you can print it off! A registered and logged on user can then view a summary of the test they have completed and previous summaries. The registered summaries have a star rating depending on speed and accuracy and are listed by date and time. 

How does it work?

The TypeDojo site loads quickly and the immediate display and design is one of simplicity with a clear no-nonsense layout, in black and white with splashes of yellow denoting the company logo and the three buttons for the typing tests of one, three or five minutes. The user is drawn to click on one of the tests straightaway to get a feel for the application.

Clicking on the one-minute test button the next screen has eight yellow buttons marked from one to eight, which relate to the grade level or level of difficulty. When you click on one of these they reveal another menu which categorises various different words.

After the user selects an option, the next screen displays the test. The top half of the screen is bordered by a black rectangle that contains a list of words. The cursor highlights the first letter of the first word. Three yellow boxes within the rectangle display the time, words per minute, and accuracy. Below the rectangle is a useful diagram of the keyboard and icons of the left and right hand. Each letter that the typist is typing is reflected by a highlighted key on the keyboard and the corresponding finger. There is a toggle button to hide this feature if it is distracting.
