Typing/Keyboarding Test FAQs




1. How much does it cost?




2. What are your days and hours for the testing?


Wednesday (except for Holidays)

11:30 am – 12:00 pm (this includes practice test and actual typing test)


3. Do I need to make an appointment?


Yes, you must pre-register. Please call 650-827-8455 between the hours of 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.


6. How long is the test?


It is a 5 minutes test.  The backspace is disabled on actual test so we can measure an accurate rate of errors. You are allowed to take it 3 times and the best score will be on the Certificate, which will be issued the same day.


7. Can I practice?


Typing practice is allowed before you take the 5 minute test.  Please practice without using the backspace key to make corrections. 


Please allow extra time to sign up at the office and pay your fee prior to testing.



8. What shows on the certificate?


The actual certificate will reflect the words per minute and total errors achieved over a 5-minute test time period.  You may choose the best one of the three (3) practice tests you took to show on your certificate.
