KeyWords contains a feature that lets teachers set their own targets
for words per minute (WPM) and for allowable errors. As your
students' typing improves, you may want to set a higher goal for
words per minute, and a lower goal for errors.
When you set your own targets, you set them for all lessons and all
students who use the device. The targets apply to all accuracy and
speed builders and tests. This is somewhat different from the way
KeyWords manages WPM and error goals. KeyWords gradually
increases the WPM goals and decreases the error goals as students
progress through lessons. Teacher-managed goals stay constant
throughout all lessons until you change them again.
