This study involved collecting keyboarding speed and accuracy rates from upper elementary students to determine more accurate and age-appropriate standards in schools. We determined average rates for fifth- and sixth-grade students and found a significant difference in speed by grade level. No significant differences were found between genders. The results help OTs better understand when students should initiate or discontinue keyboarding intervention in therapy.
