Improving Your Typing Speed Over Time

Posted on November 30, 2010. Filed under: TypeRacer News |

Time Chart

A chart of your entire race history is now available on typeracer in the My Scores section! If you’ve completed less than 100 races it plots your scores directly, otherwise it plots your averages at evenly spaced intervals between your first and last race. The new chart replaces the old “last 50” chart.

As you may recall, earlier this year we published a graph of the average WPM improvement vs. number of races finished (link). Now you can see how your graph compares to those averages!

Are you impressed / surprised / disappointed by your progress? You can leave a comment with your chart URL here to share it with everyone and get feedback. To get the URL, right click on your chart and select “Copy Image Location” (the text of this option might be different depending on your browser).

Exporting your data to CSV

Now you can also download all of your scores in one large CSV file! Many of you have been asking for this option for a long time, and I’m happy to say it’s finally available. This is an experimental feature and requires a premium subscription for now.

The contents of the CSV file will look like this:

Race #,WPM,Rank,# Racers,Text ID,Date/Time (UTC)
1,49,1,4,5,2008-07-27 21:49:17
2,60,1,4,130,2008-07-27 21:50:57
3,37,3,3,108,2008-07-27 21:54:52
...
