I did a round of "Code Groups" at 15/3 (char. speed/ effective speed) wpm. The "real speed" was indeed 5 wpm, which is to be expected as different from the "effective speed".
So far so good.
If I changed the character speed to, let's say. either 20 or 10 (+/- 5) wpm, but leaving the "effective speed" at 3 wpm, would that affect the "real speed" upwards or downwards?

To answer my own question, I made two rounds on 1 min each (probably not very indicative).
First round: 10/3 wpm = real speed 4.5 wpm
2nd round : 20/3 wpm = real speed 5.7 wpm
So, doubling the character speed and maintaining the effective speed, the real speed increases by 27%.
I'd have expected it'd increase more, but there's probably a correction factor in the software.

I'm doing 20/6 wpm, and it always turns out to be around 10 wpm real speed.
It's a little bit strange, more than 50% difference

Cb, I kind of get it. To be pedantic, using the formula:
[character speed = C; the on this website used definition of effective speed = E]
gives slightly different figures than the one I reported above, but the ratio seems about right.
And I'll experiment on!
