Harver’s typing test measures speed and accuracy. Candidates will follow written text and aim to match the text exactly within a time limit. As they make mistakes, their score will be affected.
Overall score = Net WPM in a percentage, norm referenced.
Average WPM = 38
Standard deviation= 17
Calculating Net Words per Minute (WPM)
Two measurements should be generated: gross WPM and net WPM. The gross WPM represented the number of keyed WPM regardless of errors.
Gross WPM = Typed Words / time
Spaces, numbers, letters, and punctuation are all included. Function keys as Shift and Backspace are not. A Net WPM calculation is preferred for measuring typing speed as opposed to the Gross WPM computation since including mistakes will give a more complete picture of your true typing abilities.
Net WPM = (Typed Words - Mistyped Words) / time
