Abstract

A method for monitoring a user's input performance on a computer having an initialized performance status indicator (201), the method comprising: (a) measuring the performance of a user entering information into the computer using an input device over a time period to determine at least one input performance characteristic selected from the group consisting activity rate and error rate; (b) comparing the input performance characteristic to at least one limit selected from the group consisting of a high limit (203) and a low limit (204), if the input performance characteristic is greater than the high limit (203), then adjusting the performance status indicator according to a first function (206), if the input performance characteristic is less than the low limit (205), then adjusting the performance status indicator according to a second function (205); and (c) providing an indication of input performance based on the performance status indicator (207).
