Type To Learn 4 Instructions - For LBUSD Teachers

SBAC is given as an online test.  Most times, students are required to enter their answers in sentence, paragraph, or essay form.  When a student has proficient typing skills, the student can concentrate more on providing a well thought-out response rather than getting frustrated looking for letters on the keyboard.

Students with typing skills also have an advantage when they go to Middle School, High School, and College.

TIP:  Do not allow the student to see the keys (only for Home Row Key finger placement).  Cover the student's fingers with a towel.

After downloading and installing the software, please email Mr. Ronald Siong,, for the LBUSD account code.
