UC Clermont

Keyboarding Placement Test

Only students enrolled in the Business Information Technology or Paralegal Technology programs will be required to take a keyboarding assessment. Students are given three minutes to type a paragraph as quickly and as accurately as possible. At the end of the three minutes, a score will be determined and a copy of that score will be provided. A successful result is minimum keyboarding score of 35 words per minute (the score is a combination of both speed and accuracy).

Students are given the opportunity to take a practice test and are able to take the actual test up to four times.
