Targeted Practice is an adaptive and faced-past curriculum that focuses on accuracy and speed (WPM). The focus of Targeted Practice is to permit students to practice key strokes with which they tend to have most difficulty. For example, if a particular student tends to make errors when typing the letter s, the program will serve up more words that contain that letter so that the student gets to practice finding that key with the correct finger. By honing in on that weakness, over time and with focused practice, the student will develop automaticity for that key correctly without thinking or looking at the keyboard.

To find Targeted Practice, your students will navigate to the top right icon with the target on it.

In Targeted Practice, the student is controlling a car whose speed varies with the way in which the words are typed. With this game, the student practices against him or herself. The student must beat his/her own accuracy and speed score to make the car drive faster.

Again, the focus of this curriculum is on accuracy and WPM to ensure students type words correctly with the fewest errors at a quick pace. As long as the student continues playing, the game will keep going. The program presents up to 14 words at a time that the student must type, then recalibrates and shows another set of 14 words. Should the student decide to keep going, the game will keep going; it will only stop when the student has had enough.
