I found this via my brother Stephen’s Tumblr account – an application that analyzes the readability level of various blogs and websites. My Master’s degree is in Reading Instruction, so I’ve spent a good bit of time studying readability levels and lexile scores for text. I’m actually quite please with this outcome for RandomConnections…
I have no clue how they really analyze the readability level, whether by word count, frequency of words, or what, but it’s an interesting exercise. I may have to try this with a couple of other blogs I know.
One word of caution – if you choose to put this on your own website, don’t use the code they provide. Just copy the URL for the image. The code they give you also has a link to some cash advance website. I wouldn’t want anyone to contribute to spam linking.
One thought on “Readability Level”
Thanks for the link. I really like this application. I wish I could find out how the algorithm behind the readability assessment.
