How readable is your blog or website? Free online readability test


I just took it and in the spirit of full disclosure am providing the results above.

My Flesch-Kincaid Grade of 5.14 means that anyone with at least a fifth-grade education can read and enjoy bookofjoe.

The Gunning Fox Index of 8.46, on the other hand, would imply that you'd need to finish eighth grade to twig.

The Flesch Reading Ease score of 73.71 confirms that I'm on the right track.

According to the test website, "The higher the [Flesch Reading Ease] score, the easier it is to understand the document. Authors are encouraged to aim for a score of approximately 60 to 70."

I had a Flesch-Kincaid grade of 5.82. A Gunning Fog Index of 8.57 and a Flesch Reading Ease score of 67.07.

Withy my polysyllabic word count down way low, it appears that my master's degree in English is going completely to waste! ;) I can hear my father saying in the background, "Buy them books, send them to school..."
