I have now worked on my typing training for two weeks.
My results this time got worse.
Results, April 21st
- Mean WPM this time: 34.67 (- 2.10 WPM)
- Mean WPM test 1 week: 36.77
- Mean WPM first test: 32.27 (only did one test run)
- Mean Accuracy this time: 91.69% (- 2.96)
- Mean Accuracy test 1 week: 94.65%
- Mean Accuracy first test: 93.83% (only did one test run)
2020-04-21 afternoon results:
- Mean WPM: 37.34 (+ 0.57 WPM from last week)
- Mean accuracy: 92.69% (- 1.96 from last week)
Reflections & Takeaway
My results this time got worse. One thing could be that I did the test early in the morning and before having eaten anything.
I will do one more in the afternoon to se if I write as poorly then as I did in the morning.
Doing a second test in the afternoon because I am dissatisfied with the results is cheating – I did not take a second test last time when I improved to make sure that test wasn’t a fluke.
Other than time of day and lack of food I do not why my typing did’t improve. I will update this post after I do a second test for the day – at noon:ish.
Afternoons edit: My accuracy seems to have gone down or at least is not improving. I should focus more on it. This could also be a reason why speed is not improving that much (correcting mistakes takes time).
Takeaway: Do the test roughly the same time each Tuesday. Around noon if possible and after a meal.
Training Plan & Tools
I still do three sessions per day. I have increased some sessions to 11-12 minutes.
I have added keybr.com as a tool and use it for one session per day.
Do you have any criticism of my approach? Do you know a better way for me to reach this goal of mine? If you do, I would appreciate it if you let me know by posting it in the comments.
