Study shows 'readability' scores largely inaccurate

Study shows 'readability' scores largely inaccurate | School Libraries | Scoop.it
Teachers, parents and textbook companies use technical "readability" formulas to determine how difficult reading materials are and to set reading levels by age group. But new research shows that the readability formulas are usually inaccurate and offer little insight into which age groups will be able to read and understand a text.
Tricia Adams's insight:

Librarians and teachers knowing their students is always the best way forward.
