Where can I find a free ksph (keystrokes per hour) typing test online?

Most jobs require a minimum amount of 10,000ksph. I don't know what mine is, but I type (alpha) about 60 to 80wpm, depending on how good of a typing day it is. Doesn't tell me what the ksph is, though. Also, is this used as a gauge for alpha or numeric? I get confused when I see a data entry job (usually it states 'alpha')...doing something like entering application information. Mostly text and few numbers...yet they require a certain amount of ksph. No 'math' formula for determining ksph from wpm...since different words have different numbers of letters, of course. Thanks. :-)

    Lots of answers for you.

    1. Go to google (sorry yahoo people) and type in "free data entry test" take the top three or 4 tests.

    2. There is a weird mathematical formula for typing speed to translate to alpha numeric and numeric ksph, but I found it's not right. Mostly because they are different skills like you suggested.

    3. The skills are Typing - meaning you type alpha, some numeric for long periods and continually, paragraphs, sentences, etc.

    4. Alphanumeric - bursts of speed, as you are generally tabbing through fields, hitting enter, but it's short rapid bursts.

    5. Numeric - ten key, all numbers and some addition, subtraction or whatnot, tends to be continual like typing

    6. Typing is measured in WPM, Alphanumeric and Numeric are measured in KSPH.

    7. If you can type 60wpm, you should have no problem hitting 10k as that is slightly above average for both alphanumeric and numeric. And your Numeric and Alphanumeric scores will probably be pretty close.

    I hope this helps.
