A new standard in readability
The readability of texts is generally analyzed by applying readability formulas. In our view, these formulas are obsolete. Using state-of-the-art machine learning technology, we have developed our own readability classification offering a scale of five reading levels. We employ the same text attributes as traditional readability formulas, but we also rely on more advanced grammatical characteristics of a text. Then, based on large quantities of previously labeled sample texts (training data), the machine learning technology determines which textual features are important for predicting its readability.
Our five reading levels correspond to these levels of schooling
