A Fun Typing Test

Okay, StumbleUpon.com – what took me so long to join you?

I found this fun 60-second typing test – Touch Type Test – which tests by CHARACTERS, not words. My only complaint is that it doesn’t tell you what your results are out of how many. For instance my results said:

You reached 392 points, so you achieved position 4331 on the ranking list

You type 511 characters per minute
You have 93 correct words and
you have 2 wrong words

But my position of 4,331 is out of ______________ total people? And what is the AVERAGE characters per minute that people do on the test? At least I can calculate that I did 95 words per minute (since I have 93 correct words and 2 incorrect words).

Either way, still very fun – so do the test and comment back to let me know your scores!




Update at 2:35 p.m.: Okay, so I came back and did it again just to see what difference I’d get a few hours later:

You reached 395 points, so you achieved position 4108 on the ranking list

You type 517 characters per minute
You have 99 correct words and
you have 2 wrong words

Higher ranking, 101 words, 2 wrong, six more characters.

  1. Bev, I was a word processor for many years post-college and my entire workday was spent typing. When I type freeform (meaning off the top of my head) I can top 110 WPM when I’m in the zone. But 85 WPM is nothing to sneeze at either!!

  2. Thanks, Jaynee. Most of my typing these days is email, composing as I go, so I was surprised to come up with 85!
