How Typing Practice Can Help Your Child Succeed on End-of-Year Assessments 

As the end of the school year approaches, many students are preparing for online assessments that include writing components. These assessments are critical for measuring academic progress and can have a significant impact on future academic opportunities.  

One way to help your child perform better on these assessments is by helping them develop strong typing skills. Typing practice not only improves typing speed and accuracy but also overall writing ability.  

How Typing Practice Can Benefit Your Child 

Typing practice is more than just hitting the right keys in the right order. It involves developing hand-eye coordination, improving finger dexterity, and building muscle memory. Through typing practice, your child can improve their typing speed and accuracy, which can help them complete written assignments more efficiently. 

Additionally, strong typing skills can enhance your child’s writing ability. By focusing on the keyboard rather than the act of writing by hand, children can reduce distractions and increase their focus on what they want to say. With better typing skills, children can type out their thoughts more quickly, edit their work more efficiently, and ultimately produce better quality writing. We encourage students to practice typing daily using in order to be well-prepared for the upcoming online exams at the end of the year and build essential skills over time . 

As a parent, you can encourage your child to give a try and see the benefits for themselves. With a little time and practice, your child can develop strong typing skills that will serve them well for years to come.
