It is a common practice for teachers of typewriting to endeavor to increase and measure the typewriting speed and accuracy of students through the administration of timed writings. These timed writings are also used as a measuring device by employment agencies and business organizations in obtaining and promoting employees. Studies have established the fact that manual dexterity, reading ability and intelligence influence the ability of the student to attain the speed and accuracy necessary to operate the machine at maximum efficiency.
