Basic Keyboarding skills consists of the fluent manipulation by "Touch" (without looking) of the letter keys, the figure keys, symbol keys, and the basic service keys.

Students will develop psychomotor skill in operating the keyboard as well as achieving acceptable speed and accuracy levels. Keyboarding Classes provide:

Mastery of keyboarding operation is assured by presenting just two keys in each practice session and by providing both intensive and extensive repetition of the reach-strokes to those keys.

Students work first from model typescript, then from semiarranged print, and later from handwritten and rough-draft copy.

Each progression in difficulty of format features and source copy leads the learner increasingly nearer to the actual condition of final performance.
