Core Standards of the Course

"It is recommended that in addition to the standards and performance indicators, keyboarding first be taught as a concentrated unit in third grade and reviewed in each succeeding grade to allow students to achieve a high degree of proficiency. Students will be assessed during the spring of their 5th grade year. The assessment will include a keyboarding skill test, a technology literacy self-assessment, and the inclusion of at least two pieces of student work in an electronic portfolio."
