Glossary

TypingClub uses a set of terms that are important to understand. If there's any term you've found to be unclear, please refer to the glossary below.

Attempt Each time a lesson is completed, it is counted as one attempt. Several attempts can be made on any given lesson.
Accuracy Accuracy shows the final accuracy, taking into account all corrections made during typing practice. This value is generally higher than the real accuracy.
Real Accuracy This is the raw, uncorrected accuracy. Even if the use of backspace is allowed, this value shows the percentage of text that was typed without any mistakes in the first place.
Coverage Keyboard coverage refers to the percentage of keys that have been learned and are continuously typed correctly.
Lesson Plan A collection of lessons which can be assigned to a class.
Perfect Score The perfect score can be achieved by typing at approximately 2.5 times the lesson's WPM goal with near perfect accuracy.
