  • The Typing Test – General is ideal for use by organisations needing to test the typing speed and accuracy of both individuals and groups of people efficiently and cost-effectively. The test presents the user with a passage which must be typed as accurately and quickly as possible. This test should be given to anyone whose typing speed needs to be measured.



    The Australian Standard Typing Test (AS2708-2001) measures typing speed and accuracy by providing a passage of text which needs to be typed as accurately and quickly as possible in a supervised environment, for a duration of 5 minutes.

    A Certificate of Attainment is issued upon completion of the test. The certificate shows the typing speed (words per minute) and the accuracy achieved (percentage). The certificate issued with this test is suitable as evidence of typing speed and accuracy for applications to the New South Wales* and Queensland Police Force and a number of government agencies.

    *Please note the NSW Police recruitment are still accepting the AS2708-2001 certificate until further notice.
