Some companies that offer typing tests with words-per-minute results are TypingTest.com, KeyHero.com, and 10FastFingers.com. The typing tests, also known as "wpm tests," vary between these three websites, but all tests are free of charge.
TypingTest.com offers either one-, two- or three-minute tests. The user chooses between several categories of text, such as Aesop's Fables, Rules of Baseball or The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Upon completion of the test, a results page displays typing speed, number of spelling errors, and the adjusted typing speed. For example, if the user typed 50 wpm but had 5 spelling errors, the adjusted typing speed would be 45 wpm. This score is then used to grade the user's skill as either Slow, with 0 to 24 wpm; Average, with 25 to 44 wpm; Fluent, at 45 to 59 wpm; Fast, with 60 to 79 wpm; or Pro, for those clocking in with 80+ wpm.
On KeyHero.com, the user is asked to type a quote from a famous person, from Friedrich Nietzsche to Stephen Colbert, that varies in range from 25 to 50 words. There is no time limit; the test ends when the user finishes typing the quote. Tests are graded for speed and accuracy.
10FastFingers.com gives users one minute to type a string of words that, when grouped together, are incoherent. An example: "got important down number father learn miss America." The results include wpm, total number of keystrokes, and number of correctly spelled and incorrectly spelled words. A percentage score is given, ranking the user amongst other users of the site.
