About the Leaderboards

The Typing Tournament Leaderboards are designed to boost individual student motivation and team engagement by challenging all members of a class to contribute to the overall ranking on the Leaderboard. Many teachers have indicated that working with the Leaderboards has had a remarkable effect on the typing performance of their classes.

Only typing completed by students linked to a class at a school will contribute to the Leaderboards.

Any member of the public may view the Leaderboards.

To access the Leaderboards

Go to the Typing Tournament Online Home Page

Moment by moment the Leaderboard tracks and analyses all the words typed by each student in every class and displays the results for those classes that meet the participation criteria. The results refresh every 15 minutes. The Leaderboards enable classes to compete across a broad range of criteria thus maximizing involvement. By using the tick boxes to isolate different criteria, users can view the performance of their class by:

  1. Country or state
  2. The results just for your school
  3. The class with the fastest average speed for the week to date
  4. The class with the most words typed for the week to date
  5. Age brackets

History is kept

The Leaderboard system archives the results week by week enabling users to retrospectively view the performance of their class.

Relative improvement is shown
