Typing Test Difficulty Levels

Our software development typing tests are ranked on level of difficulty. The algorithm to calculate difficulty depends on the average word length and how many special characters like capitals, numbers and symbols are included in the text. Most standard pre-employment typing tests will be in the normal range. You should expect to get higher wpm scores on easier tests and lower wpm scores on the more difficult tests.

  • * Very Easy Typing Test
  • ** Easy Typing Test
  • *** Normal Typing Test
  • **** Difficult Typing Test
  • ***** Very Difficult Typing Test
