Rates of Development of Keyboarding Skills in Elementary School Aged Children With and Without Identified Learning Disabilities. Pisha, Bart (1993).
This analysis revealed relationships between three predictors, age of student, time spent on drill and practice, and use of a computer to complete homework assignments and the principal outcome variable: my obtained estimate of rate of keyboarding skills development. Sex of the student and the quality of their handwriting do not appear to be related to this rate. Students receiving Special Education services acquire keyboarding skills at a somewhat lesser rate than students who are not served by Special Education, but performance on a bimanual rapid alternating tapping task does not appear related to their rates of skills development.
