What reading level does a child need to have to read a piece of text?

By Margaret Allen, Strategic Education Manager

Level a piece of text and calculate the readability level? This free piece of software does just that.

The ATOS readability formula is a research-proven tool to guide students to appropriate-level books. ATOS takes into account the most important predictors of text complexity—average sentence length, average word length, and word difficulty level.
