This study presents an attempt to measure the hierarchical relationship of certain common typewriting skills which are manifested by operators representing various levels of achievement. Its origin can be traced to the classic investigations of Bryan and Harter in the field of telegraphy and Book in the field of typewriting. Such terms as letter, word, and phrase habits are landmarks in the language equipment of the educational psychologist and it was, therefore, considered desirable to reevaluate the hierarchical point of view by experimental typewriting under conditions somewhat at variance with the usual test procedures.
