In the upcoming major update to TapTyping, I’m trying to get more accurate about assigning each typist a skill level. Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, or Elite.
This lead me to a programmer’s favorite pastime: crunching numbers. I was wondering how normally distributed people’s typing speeds would be when graphed. Here’s what I found.
Very normal, as it turns out. The average iPad typing speed on the TapTyping test is 30.64 WPM with a standard deviation is 13.01 WPM.
