This 10-key typing test evaluates candidates’ ability to accurately and efficiently enter numerical data using the ten keys on a keyboard's numeric pad, including the decimal point and mathematical operators. This test measures the speed and accuracy of a person's data entry skills in keystrokes per hour (KPH).
Randomly generated decimal numbers combined with mathematical operators from the numeric pad
Data entry clerks, accountants, financial analysts, inventory clerks, bookkeepers, data analysts, and any other roles requiring fast and accurate numerical typing.
Numerical data is essential in many business operations, from accounting and finance to sales and marketing. Hiring people who can enter numerical data quickly, accurately, and efficiently is crucial for businesses to ensure that they can effectively manage and analyze their data. Speedy and precise data entry allows for real-time decision-making, accurate financial reporting, and effective communication with clients, customers, and other stakeholders. It also helps businesses to identify trends and opportunities that can inform strategic planning and decision-making.
This 10-key Typing Test evaluates candidates’ ability to accurately and efficiently enter numerical data using the ten keys on a keyboard's numeric pad, which is essential in many jobs that require working with financial or numerical data, such as accounting, data entry, or statistical analysis. This typing skills test is designed to be challenging and engaging, with randomly generated prompts that require candidates to enter numerical data accurately and quickly. The prompts on this test include all features of the keyboard’s numeric pad, including the numbers 0-9, the decimal point, and mathematical operators such as addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), and division (/). As in most data entry software, candidates must hit the “enter” key between entries.
This typing test provides a measurement of numeric typing speed in keystrokes per hour (KPH). Hiring employees with strong data entry skills can ensure that your business meets its legal obligations and avoids potential penalties or fines. This 10-key typing skills test will help you hire candidates with strong data entry skills who can ensure that your business is operating at its full potential, minimizing errors, maximizing productivity and efficiency, and achieving compliance with regulatory requirements, such as tax reporting and auditing.

TestGorilla’s team of assessment experts and engineers has created a series of Typing Speed tests that were researched, defined, and developed within our team. As with all the tests in our test library, the Typing Speed tests underwent assessment and review to ensure the tests meet the highest levels of accuracy before being published.
These tests will continue to be evaluated for constant improvement in line with our standardized revision process for all tests in our Test Library.
TestGorilla’s tests are created by subject matter experts. We assess potential subject-matter experts based on their knowledge, ability, and reputation. Before being published, each test is peer-reviewed by another expert, then calibrated using hundreds of test takers with relevant experience in the subject.
Our feedback mechanisms and unique algorithms allow our subject-matter experts to constantly improve their tests.
TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
