The goal of the Kenexa Prove It typing test is to measure the speed and accuracy of a test-taker's typing. During the test, you will be presented with a passage which you will be asked to re-type as accurately and as quickly as you can. The time will start running as soon as you click "begin".

The assessment will contain one passage of up to 4000 characters, including spaces and any html formatting code. This comes out usually to between 300-350 words. Most companies create a specific text with content related to the job, while some other companies use a general format.

The test's time frame is 3 to 5 minutes. Your score will reflect the average number of words per minute (WPM) you typed.

Prove It Typing Test Results

The results are calculated according to three parameters: Raw words per minute, average mistakes per minute and adjusted words per minute.
Though accuracy is crucial, the most important component of this test is speed.

The minimum typing speed required varies from job to job. Many employers define 40 wpm as the minimum speed for a job; this is also the average typing speed. However, some professions, in which typing skills are an essential part of the work, require faster typing speeds (between 60-80 wpm).

Examples of Professions that Require High-Level Typing Skills:

How to Improve Your Typing Speed?

  • It is recommended to practice on a platform that simulates the real test interface and its time pressure.
  • Pay attention to capital letters and punctuation.
  • Maintain a comfortable posture: your shoulders should be relaxed, your feet flat on the floor, and your back straight. Good posture enables you to save energy and feel relaxed during the test.
  • If you have enough time before the test, try to improve your ability to type without looking at the keyboard. It might cause more mistakes initially, but you will quickly learn the positions of the keys and begin to type faster and more accurately.
  • Typing is based on muscle memory. As such, your muscles will need some time and practice to adjust to the new techniques you are learning or improving on.
