A study sought to determine the change in speed and accuracy after 5 hours of practice on a standardized test for 10-key numeric entry at the community college level. Specifically it sought to determine how much speed and accuracy will increase or decrease after 5 hours of practice on a 10-key numeric entry test as compared to top-row numeric entry using the same test. The study involved four classes of numeric keyboarding at a community college. Test scores collected at the end of each semester showed the following: (1) 10-key numeric entry is the fastest and most accurate method of input; (2) students using 10-key had a higher rate of improvement than students using top-row numeric entry. The study recommended that students continue to practice to improve their grade in either 10-key or top-row numeric entry, with records kept so students and instructors can easily track progress.
