Hi!

Your student has been taking 1 minute timed typing tests throughout the
year and I wanted to let you see their progress. The benchmark score for fifth
grade is 25 words per minute with 2 or fewer errors, so this was our goal.
Students can practice typing on a variety of free typing games online, and also by
simply practicing typing any text into a Word document.
Student’s beginning of the year average: __________ wpm
Student’s current average _________ wpm
Student’s highest score on a 1 minute timed test this year: _______ wpm
