Readability

Clark @ 1:04 pm

I’ve seen that my colleagues have been running their blogs through a ‘readability‘ test. I’m not sure how reasonable it is, but I took a punt and:

My High School Readability

I’m pleased that it’s readable (I wouldn’t want otherwise), but I admit I’ve always thought that I’m too conceptual, so I’m a little put out! ;).

On the other hand, the code they ‘recommend’ has as an alternate a ‘cash advance’ site(?!?). Given that Cammy Bean’s is ‘genius’ level, and Jay Cross’ is ‘jr. high school’, maybe it’s random? I respect both, but I don’t find that big a difference between their outputs. Caveat emptor.

  1. I remember having to calculate these for one of my classes to earn my BS Ed. There are so many different readability formulae; I wonder which formula this website uses to calculate readability levels. I remember that the vast majority of American adults had a readability level in the junior high range, which is why the New International Version (NIV) of the bible is written for that readability level.
