Evaluation Of Typing Question:
Glider provides typing questions to evaluate the typing capability of candidates. You can create your own typing test by providing the content you like. If you set a time limit for an assessment that includes a typing question, the assessment time limit is not applicable to the typing test since it timed separately. The typing question timer starts as soon as the candidate starts typing and stops at the set time. You can set the time limit for the typing question while authoring the question.
Types of errors:
- Text case errors - Error in typing the upper and lower case alphabets - example, typing "Read" as "read". This type of errors will be counted as 0.5 error
- Word insertion errors - extra words inserted between the question’s actual text. This error will be counted as 1 error
- Spelling error - misspelling a word - example “Accuracy” typed as “Acuracy”. Errors like these will be counted as 1 error
- Missing words - words that were in the question content but not typed by the candidate
- Punctuation will be considered as part of the word itself. Consider the sentence - “You too, take care!”. The sentence will be four standard words - “You”, “too,” “take” “care!”. If punctuation is missed for care, it will be considered as misspelled.
- Words that were never typed, because the time expired or the candidate stopped typing will not be considered as errors. Accuracy will be calculated only on the actual text typed.
