COURSE DESCRIPTION:  This course is designed to provide an opportunity for students to master the skill of entering alphabetic, numeric, and symbolic information on a keyboard and a ten-key pad using the touch method of keystroking.  Emphasis is placed on development of accuracy and speed, proper techniques, and correct fingering. Formatting of basic documents will be introduced.

OBJECTIVE:  Given the necessary hardware, software, supplies, and facilities, the student will be able to successfully complete all of the following standards in a course that grants one-half unit of credit.

COMPUTERS REQUIRED:  One computer per student

CREDIT:  ½ unit

PROFICIENCY TEST:   The Office of Career and Technology Education has developed  a keyboarding proficiency test that is available for use in school districts upon request of and supervision of the business, marketing, and computer technology department chair to determine readiness for taking higher level computer courses such as Business Computer Applications and Computer Technology.  A student who feels he or she does not need to take the full Keyboarding course may elect to take this test if the district decides to make this option available.  If the student meets the requirements on the test, he or she may choose not to take the Keyboarding course. However, no Carnegie half-credit is given for passing the proficiency test. Passing this test would meet the state requirement for keyboarding proficiency and the prerequisite skill requirement for upper-level computer courses in business, marketing, and computer technology education.  Score sheets for the test, supervised and graded under the direction of the business, marketing, and computer technology department chair, should be given to the chairman of the business, marketing, and computer technology department at the high school for use in determining whether the student should be allowed into the next level computer course.
