A Practical Guide for Estimating Readability.
Beals, Diane E.
Teaching Exceptional Children, v21 n3 p24-27 Spr 1989
Estimating readability requires more than a formula comparing word length and sentence length. Other factors to be considered include vocabulary, the relationship between syntax and readability, the syntax used in children's oral language, and writing style. Steps are outlined for systematically estimating readability of instructional materials for students with disabilities. (JDD)
