Abstract:

Eight different training programs involving a variety of media were evaluated in terms of their effectiveness in developing the straight copy typing skill of male military personnel who typed 10 or less words per minute on a screening test given prior to the start of training. Subjects received a maximum of 33 hours of typing practice over a 9-day period, and tests to measure progress were administered after one hour of practice and after every 3 34 hours of practice thereafter. The most effective programs devoted relatively little time to detailed instruction during keyboard learning and emphasized speed by forced pace during skill building.
