How I Use It
I assign students 2-3 "courses" per week for practice and weekly require that they take a typing test and report the scores to me. In this way, I can quickly asses their growth. The nice thing is it gives students to do when they have finished other assignments and allows them to choose when they will practice their typing assignments, even if it is at home. I use the free version and find it completely adequate for our classroom needs.
My Take
This is a very easy to use free website that allows students to practice their typing skills. You can use a csv file to upload student names, user ids, and passwords. You can track a student's progress easily through the dashboard, and the practices have a visual of the keyboard and fingers to help reinforce student connections.
