Part 2 is designed to increase keyboarding speed using a programmed pacing method. There are 13 lessons to develop the student's speed rate to 30 words a minute. Student progress is measured at the end of each lesson. One-minute timings are at the end of each lesson beginning with Lesson 5 and continue through each lesson for students to measure their speed with accuracy as they move through the program. Gross words with errors are computed and shown at the end of each timing. Two-minute timings are also a part of the program to aid students to extend their keyboarding speed from one-minute to two-minute and three-minute timings.
