  • Summary

    There are 60 cases in this dataset, with a mean text entry rate of 12.01 wpm. The minimum was 1.44 wpm, the maximum was 35.53 wpm, and the standard deviation was 8.12 wpm. The histogram below shows the distribution of text entry rate across these 60 cases. The most common range was text entry rate between 8 and 10 wpm, representing 12 individuals.

    This search also returned 16 subject groups, for which no individual data were reported. The mean text entry rate across the groups was 9.52 wpm. The minimum was 2.52 wpm. The maximum was 8.82 wpm. The standard deviation across the groups was 5.94 wpm.
