The students will:
1.  Practice the Cortez Peters championship typewriting methods.
2.  Demonstrate their skill by typing five-minute timed writings with
   one or fewer errors.
3.  Use the Cortez Peters method while typing one-minute timings writings
   with perfect accuracy.
4.  Apply the new typewriting methods learned so that each student will
   have typed a minimum of five Honor Roll Papers by the end of the
   course. (An Honor Roll Paper is a five-minute timed writing with one
   or fewer errors).
5.  Embark upon a program to increase speed while still maintaining
   accuracy. Increase in speed can be achieved through the judicious
   use of the following:
     A. rhythm tapes.
     B. technique-perfection tapes.
     C. keyboard reinforcement tapes.
     D. individual consultations with the instructor so that progress
        can be monitored and appropriate changes can be determined to
        enhance student achievement.
6.  Achieve the distinction of becoming a Cortez Peters Championship
   Typing Class by averaging five Honor Roll Papers per student in
   the class.
7.  Reduce the class's CBER (class beginning error rate) so that the
   CEER (class ending error rate) falls below 1.0 errors per students.
