JSS-16 Contents vi Special Features of EPC Keyboarding & Ten Key Courses: HTML5—HTML5 works on computers and tablets. Students can learn anytime, anywhere (classroom, lab, or home). Student progress and grades can be viewed over the Internet by the teacher—no papers to handle, grade, or turn in. Software is hosted on Ellsworth Publishing Co. (EPC) servers. Data is saved on our servers. No EPC software to install or maintain. UNIQUE KEYBOARDING FEATURES— • • • • • Select one or two spaces after a period at the end of a sentence and [ :, !, and ?]. Turn off the timing area on the screen to prevent students from looking at their fingers or the screen. If they take their eyes off the copy, they will lose their place. Turn off the Backspace key completely or just for selected timings. Internal message manager to send and receive messages to one or all students. Certificates are available to print for students that meet course competencies. FLEXIBILITY—Course standards can be changed/customized for individualized learning or course length/time needs. Make the course fit your needs, not the other way around. POWERPOINT COURSE DEMONSTRATIONS—Step-by-step tutorials are available on our website at www.EllsworthPublishing.com. PROGRESS REPORTS—Show the best scores that meet the accuracy standard entered in the Setup. Progress Reports are viewed on the student side and by the teacher in the Teacher Manager—nothing needs to be printed! GRADE REPORTS (Mid-Term & Final)—The average keystrokes per hour (KSPH) for Ten Key and the average words per minute (WPM) for keyboarding in each lesson as shown on the Progress Report is automatically averaged to calculate an overall course average. The course average is compared to the grading scale entered in the Setup and a grade is assigned on the Grade Report. Lessons and lines can be practiced again to try to raise the final grade. Grade Reports are viewed on the student side and by the teacher in the Teacher Manager—nothing needs to be printed! INSTANT FEEDBACK—All exercises are timed; speed and accuracy are reported after each timing. COMPETENCY BASED—The instructor’s grading scale is entered in the Setup. The grade for an “A” should be the goal for each timing exercise—students practice each exercise until they reach their goal before going on to the next one. SELF-PACED—Students can go at their own pace (within the daily or weekly parameters set by the instructor). SECURITY—The name, ID#, and scores are permanently recorded within each student’s file for security reasons. Students can’t change the name or exchange scores. SPECIAL ADAPTATION FOR BUSY (NOISY) CLASSROOMS OR HEARING IMPAIRED STUDENTS—All exercises are timed. A special end-of-timing red alert on the monitor silently notifies students that the timer has run out of time. Contents vii About the Author: Barbara G.
