We believe learning a skill as fundamental as touch typing should be available to everybody of all ages, skill levels, and even languages! How can the internet grow if it takes us an hour to type an email?

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 find that common usernames are “already in use” by other students at other schools. Make sure the names are unique as possible to avoid this.
Passwords are 1-way hashed/encrypted for security, which means they are not visible in plain text anywhere on the site and can not be printed. This makes it impossible for a hacker (or even us!) to access passwords.
You can reset your students' passwords from the Classes page of your Teacher Portal. Select the student by clicking the box to the left of the username then select reset password.
You will need to assign the licenses to your students. To assign the licenses to your students click on the Manage Ad-Free Licenses link at the very top of your teacher portal. Once there you will have the ability to upgrade and downgrade your students.
To view more detailed information on students’ lesson progress, test results and login information, click the username of the student you wish to view from either the Student Monitor, My Classes page or the Report page of your Teacher Portal.
Typing.com’s Teacher Portal only supports a single login per account. If you want additional teachers to be able to access the students data you will need to share your login information.
You can transfer an existing student account from one teacher account to another by unlinking the student from their former teachers account then linking them to the new teacher account. To unlink a student go to the classes page of the teacher portal. Select the student by clicking the box to the left of the username, then select “unlink”. Now the student account can be linked to another teacher account. To link an existing account go to the Add Students page and select the link existing tab.
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 not be disabled.
Yes, the Scoreboard can be disabled from within your Teacher Portal, on the Account page, under Enable Class Scoreboard.
