It stores this data for instant access and uses it to create individualized lessons based on the student’s typing history. At any time, you and your students may review an updated progress report with graphs showing proficiency in meeting typing goals on lessons, quizzes, and tests and showing progress in learning each of the keys on the keyboard.
