Keyboarding
Regardless of the subject area, most next generation assessments require students to type many of their responses. Students need to be proficient with keyboarding skills so they will not be slowed down considerably by their own typing speed. Otherwise the assessment may not be a true measure of their content knowledge, but instead be negatively impacted by their typing proficiency.

Below are interactive, tech-enhanced online resources to help students practice the keyboarding skills they will need for next generation assessments.

If you know of other appropriate resources, please submit them through our form here. Submissions will be reviewed and added to the collection.
