A Paper Presented to the Faculty of Viterbo University in Paritial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree in Master of Arts in Education

“The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship of initial touch speed achievement of fifth grade keyboarding students on their touch keyboarding skill retention in seventh grade. Numerous research and articles from the 80’s and 90’s are evident in a review of the literature. A rising use of computers at the elementary level during this time heightened the need to determine what is an appropriate use and level of keyboarding skill for children. The literature indicates a consensus for the need of keyboarding skills, however, there remains debate as to when and how the instruction of this skill is to take place.”
