Bradshaw, J. Telltale Typing Globe and Mail, December 13, p. A11
My previous post discussed the McMaster University computerized assessment system for selecting medical students.
One by-product of this may have much wider implications. The program analyzes segments of typing according to their pattern which provides a unique profile of an individual’s keyboarding. This can be used to verify that the person who turns up at med school is the same person who took the online test.
But don’t rush out and buy CASPer yet – the profile-by-typing test is still under development.
