Typesy August 2019 Update for Users

Categories: Schools, Typesy Update |

Typesy is always looking for ways to improve and make learning to type easier and more rewarding. The only way to truly move into the future and keep education fresh for students is to constantly reevaluate and adjust the user experience. Let’s take a look at some of the latest updates!

Status Level Overhaul

Typesy has done a full status level overhaul. There are more features and options now, including new trophies and two animated odometers for both typing speed and accuracy. There will no longer be any question as to how far students have progressed or how they move forward. The status of each student will be clearly displayed. This allows students and teachers to keep track of how far the student has come and lets them customize the curriculum to get them where they need to be.

Placement test

Taking a placement test will help you make the most of Typesy experience. Upon opening Typesy for the first time, you will be greeted with a dialogue box asking you to take the Typesy placement test. You can retake this test at any point in time by going to the side menu and clicking “diagnosis”. The placement test will help us determine your goals and current status.

What-to-do-next Section

The What-to-do-next section is a great feature that helps you pick up right where you left off. It also lets you know how far you are and what comes next once you are finished with the current assignment. This is a great way to stay on top of your lessons, and it helps admins keep students on track.

Typing Mastery Change

Your typing mastery level will let you see how far you have come and how far you still have to go. This will be displayed on an animated odometer. The levels are now re-labeled as novice, intermediate, master, elite, and legend. 

You will also find that you now have to reach certain mastery levels before you can access specific features, such as avatar customization and background images. Motivation is the key to success, and Typesy wants to help you be more motivated.
