What is a 10-key experience? What are the requirements?

A “10-key” is usually the little section of a computer keyboard on the right-hand side (only “full” keyboards have them) that looks like a calculator.

If you see a job listing that calls for “10-key experience” (the only time I’ve ever seen those words together is in that context), the job probably involves a lot of data entry and they want to make sure you are fast at using the ten-key to enter numbers.

Of course, if it says “a ten-key experience” the use of the article suggests that the writer might be looking for an account of a particular thing that happened to someone using a ten-key.

I’m drawing a blank as to why such a thing would be interesting but there are lots of people in the world, so I’m sure someone has had “a ten-key experience” that’s worth relating.

A 10-key is typically a type of calculator that’s useful for accounting types of activities. Often, 10-keys are set so that you press the operand after the number, at least for addition and subtraction.

An example:

If you have 10 cats, 2 monkeys, and 5 birds, and wanted to find out how many total animals you have, you would enter each key literally like this:

10 + 2 + 5 =

And then the calculator would display “17”. On a 10 key:

10 +

2 +

5 +

After you hit “10 +” the 10 key displays “10”. After “2 +”, display is “12.” And so on. You could easily subtract 2 by hitting “2 – “

The other thing about skills with a 10 key is just entry speed. Getting fast on a 10 key in the same way that people that have to type regularly are helped by increasing their typing speed.

What is a good 10 key speed? A ten key speed above 8,000 KPH (Keystrokes Per Hour) is higher than the average score, and over 10,000 KPH is usually considered a high speed (when it is achieved with zero errors).

Tenkey data entry, also tenkey or 10key, uses the numerical keypad on a computer keyboard, a calculator or a 10key pad to enter numeric data into computer systems and databases. … This skill is used in many jobs where you input financial, coding or number-based information.

It takes less than 10 hours to learn to type with 10 fingers at about 15 words per minute and another 5 hours to reach hand writing speed of about 20 WPM. The best way is to learn over a short period of time. A lesson a day over 10 days and a further 5 days of practice-typing is recommended.

If you ever hear the term ‘10 key by touch‘, this just means that you are able to type without looking at the keys, this is important because if you have to look at the keys every time it will slow you down.
