Gross speed indicates the total number of characters you have typed divided by your time (with spaces and punctuation). When you mistype a word, an error is marked. The net speed is your total speed with the errors calculated into the result.

Net results are calculated in the following fashion:

(total number of keystrokes - number of mistyped words * error factor) / time

The error factor is set to 5 by default. This means that 5 characters are reduced for each mistyped word. The error factor can be changed in TypingMaster programs and tests program if needed.

For example if you type 100 characters per minute (CPM)and you mistype 6 words, your gross speed will be 100 CPM and your net speed will be 70 CPM.

If you are using Words per Minute (WPM) notation, results are divided by 5 (a word length of 5 characters is the standard for English language). In the example above, you would get gross speed of 20 WPM and net speed of 14 WPM.
