Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Typing.com cost?

Typing.com is free! Make sure to register for a free account to save your typing progress and statistics! Typing.com displays fun and interesting ads to help pay for the cost of building and maintaining Typing.com. If you would prefer not to see advertisements, you can upgrade to a Premium Account and you will never see another ad again.

I am trying to add my students but I get an error message that says username already taken.

We use a shared student username database. When you try to create a username it is checked against every other student in our system, just like trying to register for an email address with Google. You will find that common usernames are “already in use” by other students at other schools. Make sure the names are unique as possible to avoid this.

How do students reset lost passwords?

You can reset your students' passwords from the Classes page of your Teacher Portal.

I purchased Ad-Free licenses. Why do I still see ads on the students accounts?

You will need to assign the licenses to your students. To assign the licenses to your students click on the Manage Premium Licenses link at the very top of your teacher portal. Once there you will have the ability to upgrade and downgrade your students.

My student has two teachers who use Typing.com. How can I add another teacher so they can also view students progress.

Typing.com’s Teacher Portal only supports a single login per account. If you want additional teachers to be able to access the students data you will need to share your login information, or try upgrading to EduTyping, our premium classroom edition which supports multiple teachers, school admins, and district admins in a single license.

I accidentally deleted my students account, can I recover the data from that account?

Unfortunately once an account has been deleted the data can not be recovered.

'How is the time spent typing calculated?

Time spent typing is calculated from the time the student starts and stops typing on the keyboard in a lesson screen. It also includes the timed tests. The time does not include the time it takes to move from one lesson to another or time spent on games.

Can I disable the backspace key?

The backspace key can not be disabled. You can upgrade to EduTyping, our premium classroom edition for this and many other class administration settings

I do not want my students to view the Class Scoreboard, can this be disabled?

Yes, the Scoreboard can be disabled from within your Teacher Portal, on the Account page, under Enable Class Scoreboard.
