Even though it may look as though Third Grade did not have the same success, appearances are not exactly what they seem. These scores still reflect increased effort on the part of most students.(based on teacher observation) In addition, it should be mentioned that students are supposed to type with their hands covered with a piece of felt, to help them strengthen the habit of watching the screen and not their hands.

This page was developed through GirlTECH '97,a teacher training and student technology council program sponsored by the Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC), a National Science Foundation funded Science and Technology Center. Thanks also to the <RGK Foundation for its generous support.
