Objective and WPM Top
  • The objective of GoVenture Typing is to improve your typing speed and accuracy.
  • Your typing speed is measured by the number of words you can type in one minute, including the time needed to correct mistakes. This is reported as WORDS PER MINUTE or WPM.
  • The fewer mistakes you make, the less time you will spend correcting mistakes, thereby increasing your WPM speed. Accuracy is important.
Skill Test and Goal Setting Top
  • Begin the game by taking a SKILL TEST to measure your current typing speed in Words Per Minute (WPM).
  • Set your GOAL to the Words Per Minute (WPM) speed you wish to achieve by the end of the game. Your current speed will not affect your training - only your GOAL will. The game will adjust based on the GOAL you set. Choose a GOAL that is challenging and achievable.
  • You can change your GOAL at any time by retaking the SKILL TEST (click the SKILL TEST icon on map 1). Changes to your GOAL are logged in the PERFORMANCE REPORT.
