Our Automatic Readability Checker takes a sample of your writing and calculates the number of sentences, words, syllables, and characters in your sample. Our program takes the output of these numbers and plugs them into seven popular readability formulas. These readability formulas (see below) will let you know the reading level and grade level of your text and help you determine if your audience can read your writing. (Note: We also have separate readability tools to calculate grade levels using the Fry Graph, Raygor Estimate Graph, Spache Formula, and New Dale-Chall Formula, located here: Free Readability Calculators and Text Tools). Directions: Paste in a sample of text and click "CHECK TEXT READABILITY." A sufficient sample size consists of 4-5 full sentences; approximately 200 - 600 words total. Paste a sample of plain text in the box. Our free readability formula tool will analyze your text and output the results based on these readability formulas. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Flesch–Kincaid readability tests The Flesch/Flesch–Kincaid readability tests are readability tests designed to indicate comprehension difficulty when reading a passage of contemporary academic English. There are two tests, the Flesch Reading Ease, and the Flesch–Kincaid Grade Level. Although they use the same core measures (word length and sentence length), they have different weighting factors. The results of the two tests correlate approximately inversely: a text with a comparatively high score on the Reading Ease test should have a lower score on the Grade Level test. Rudolf Flesch devised both systems while J. History[edit] "The Flesch–Kincaid" (F–K) Reading grade level was developed under contract to the United States Navy in 1975 by J. The F-K formula was first used by the United States Army for assessing the difficulty of technical manuals in 1978 and soon after became the Department of Defense military standard. Flesch Reading Ease[edit] Scores can be interpreted as shown in the table below. The U.S.

American and British English spelling differences One of the ways in which American English and British English differ is in spelling. Historical origins[edit] Extract from the Orthography section of the first edition (1828) of Webster's ADEL, the root of many American vs. British English differences: -re, -er (6); -our, -or (7); Dropped e (8); -or vs. -er (10); -ce, -se (11); doubling consonants with suffix (15) American medical text from 1814 showing the British English spellings still used at the time, such as "tumours", "colour", and "centres". In the early 18th century, English spelling was not standardised. Webster was a strong proponent of English spelling reform for reasons both philological and nationalistic. The spelling systems of most Commonwealth countries and Ireland, for the most part, closely resemble the British system.

How many keywords can you rank for with one page? (Ahrefs’ study of 3M searches) For anyone monitoring their traffic from Google, it’s not really a revelation that a single page can rank for hundreds (or even thousands) of relevant keywords. But how many keywords exactly will an average page rank for? That’s the question we wanted to answer (plus a few more), so we picked 3 million random search queries and looked at the top-ranking pages and how many other keywords they rank for. Let's dive right in! How many keywords do the top20 ranking pages “also rank for”? Here are the average and median numbers of keywords that we saw top20 pages “also rank for” (studied across 3 million search queries): Sidenote. By saying “also rank for,” I actually mean “also rank for in top10.” It looks like the average #1 ranking page will also rank in the top10 for nearly 1,000 other relevant keywords (while the median value is more than two times smaller - around 400 keywords). And the lower ranking pages tend to rank for less keywords. We have also studied three groups of keywords separately:

Other spelling differences[edit] Throughout this section, the variants here regarded as "British" are also used in Australia (in most cases), as well as in other Commonwealth countries and in Ireland.

Vocabulary and comprehension Vocabulary and comprehension In early 2005 I spent some time reading about comprehension as I was new to the ARCT team and this was the area of focus for our resource development in English. In my reading I was particularly interested to find that the gap between decoding and comprehension experienced by many middle and upper primary students was well documented. It was something I had experienced and worried about as a teacher of students at this level. Vocabulary and grammatical knowledge are significant factors in influencing reading achievement. According to Chall (1983) weak vocabulary leads to poor reading comprehension that in turn limits vocabulary development. Working with students During term 3, I worked with a group of six Year 7 students for approximately one hour, once a week. words commonly used when giving instructions eg.

Online Etymology Dictionary Behaviours of Concern - Education Rights Many parents of students with disabilities report behaviours of concern occurring at school, and subsequent punishment, suspension and expulsion as a response. This is particularly common for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and ODD. Professional commentary and scientific research on behaviours of concern and restrictive practices is widely available. The research, professional organisations which endorse practices evidenced by research, and academics, have information available that is aligned and non contradictory. In other words, there is little controversy by competent professionals on how to address behaviours of concern, and the dangerous nature of restrictive practices. The Australian Psychological Society and Office of Professional Practice (Department of Health and Human Services) have many resources available to the public which discuss best practice around these issues. What are “behaviours of concern”? Why do students demonstrate behaviours of concern? Advocacy
