We use a shared student username database. When you try to create a username it is checked against every other student in our system, just like trying to register for an email address with Google. You will notice that the most common usernames are already "in use" by other students in other schools. To avoid this, make sure that the usernames you choose are as unique as possible.
You can reset your students' passwords from the Classes page of your Teacher Portal.
The Typing.com Teacher's Portal allows a single account when logging into the portal. If you want other teachers to have access to your students' data, you should share your entry credentials.
Unfortunately once an account has been deleted the data can not be recovered.
Time spent typing is calculated from the time the student starts and stops typing on the keyboard in a lesson screen. It also includes the timed tests. The time does not include the time it takes to move from one lesson to another or time spent on games.
The backspace key can be disabled.
Yes, the Scoreboard can be disabled from within your Teacher Portal, on the Account page, under Enable Class Scoreboard.
