What is readability Score?

A readability index is one of the main text parameters to focus on when you’re aimed to produce comprehensive and easy-to-grasp papers. It determines how easy it is for a reader to understand paper content without reading every sentence over and over. Having our automatic Readability Checker online at hand, you can quickly how legible your text is and see what sentences require fixes.

Based on the sentence complexity, syntax, and structure algorithm, the tool calculates the readability score and highlights the most problematic parts. Different methods are used to determine the paper grading level: Flesch Kincaid Reading Ease and Grade Level, SMOG Index, Gunning Fog Score, and Automated Readability Index are among the main formulas.

Use the Readability Checker from EssayToolBox to get an estimate of the minimum education/grade level needed to understand your piece. Improve grammar, word choice, sentence structure in your writing. Identify what sentences need to be rewritten.
