    Generally speaking, 5 characters counts as a word. So a sentence like: "My name is Bob." would generally count as 3 words.

    If the test itself is not timed, and you're merely typing three sentences, then you would have to calculate how long it takes to type the sentences, factor in your accuracy factor, and then do some math to figure out how many words per minute were typed. I don't know how accuracy is calculated.

    As far as starting/stopping the timer, You could probably start it with the first keypress, and either stop it after a certain amount of time, or after a certain number of characters, or something like that.
