Using Readability Formulas to Establish the Grade Level Difficulty of Software.
Clariana, Roy B.
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v4 n3-4 p255-61 1993
Compared the grade level difficulty obtained from seven readability formulas to student reading levels from two national standardized tests to determine which formulas best determined the readability of computer-based text. Found that the Flesch-Kincaid, FOG, and ARI formulas provided the best estimate of reading grade level of computer-based text for students in grades five and six. (MDM)
