Adjust Lesson Difficulty per Student

Select the Classes tab on the left side of the page. Choose the student’s class and then the tab that corresponds to the lesson plan of interest. If you click "Scoreboard", you will see the list of enrolled students.

Find the student, go to the column labeled “Difficulty” and click “Normal Difficulty”. You can adjust the difficulty in terms of either accuracy or words per minute (WPM).

To Adjust the Required Minimum Accuracy:

Enter the minimum accuracy for your students to earn one star. If your students perform below this value, they will not pass the lesson.

To Adjust Difficulty by Words per Minute (WPM):

Use the arrows to add or subtract from the words per minute requirement for this student. If you change this setting to +1, you will make it more difficult for the student, whereas if you change it -1, you will make it easier.

For example, if a lesson requires a speed of 15 words per minute, adding +1 will require this student to type at a speed of 16 words per minute. This requirement will apply to all lessons in this lesson plan for this student.

We recommend making small changes to the requirements to better gauge the student’s skill level.
