In addition, following a one year period of time after a school or districts account expires, student identifying records will be deleted from our database archives and no longer available for use by Typing Agent For reporting purposes, an overview report of the school or districts progress (excluding student identifying data) will be retained for analytical purposes.

subscription, students, parents, teachers, and administrators can print a report of an overview of the work that the student accomplished while on the program.
Please note: student passwords are visible to teachers and administrators of the program. Best practice is NOT to have students use common passwords or passwords they use elsewhere.
