Keyboarding as General Education: Post-School Employment and Earnings Effects

D. R. Lewis, J. C. Hearn, E. E. Zilbert

This study reports on the post-school attainment effects of offering courses in typing and keyboarding as part of general education. The analysis was designed to develop models to analyze the effects of keyboarding on employment, earnings, further educational attainment, and related distributional and cost-effectiveness issues. These models were assessed empirically using national survey data from the federal government's High School and Beyond data set. Results indicate significant positive ramifications on all aspects cited above.
