*Calculating average errors.* Errors are calculated as the characters typed over and above those required to type the text perfectly. For example, "This is text." is 13 characters long + a shift press = 14 characters. If the person had backspaced once and then pressed a new character, the number of errors would be 2. Calculate the average over both two non-practice trials, unless one trial was omitted in the prior calculation.

*Calculating characters/minute.* Calculate the average of the two non-practice character/minute times. However, if there is a large disparity between the two times (> 25% difference), use the faster of the two.
