Type to Learn has 34 lessons, 5 engaging, skill-targeted typing games offered, and 7 diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments.
A diagnostic typing pre-test assesses students' existing keyboarding skills and places them at a certain typing lesson matching their abilities. The typing pre-test also analyzes students' starting speed and accuracy, setting personalized achievement goals for the program teaching them how to type more efficiently.
Each keyboarding lesson includes:
- Home row reinforcement
- Warm-up exercise
- Review of previously learned keys
- Demonstration of new keys
- Practice exercises
3D hand animation on a reference keyboard demonstrates correct fingering for new keys and provides support when incorrect keys are pressed.
If at any time the student performs below achievement goals, personalized remediation content is automatically provided, based on specific errors the student made. A short Final Challenge quiz at the end of every lesson must be
passed in order for the student to progress.
Formative assessments and a final summative assessment ensure that students have mastered the keys to that point and are ready to continue. Speed and accuracy are analyzed and goals are increased accordingly.
Type to Learn incorporates real-world typing content that is age-appropriate and cross-curricular, including:
- Historical documents
- Literature passages
- Frequently used Quick-blends and Quick-words

An optional Top Scores list can display students with the highest accuracy and speed across a single class, grade, school, district, or even all Type to Learn web users.
