There are plenty of online programs that you can use to practice typing skills, test your typing speed, and test your typing accuracy. While some of those may be very good programs they don't evaluate your typing skills while you're going about your daily web browsing or word processing activities. Typing Speed Monitor, a Google Chrome extension, does just that.
Typing Speed Monitor is a Google Chrome extension that will track how fast you type and what keys you use most frequently. If you do a lot of writing online, Typing Speed Monitor is one way to get accurate feedback on your typing proficiency in real-world settings. The latest version of Typing Speed Monitor allows you to opt out of having it track your typing on domains you specify. For example, if you don't want it to track how fast you type on Facebook, you can exclude that domain.
Applications for Education
Typing Speed Monitor could be a good way to find out how well students actually type in realistic scenarios.
