The Readability Test uses the Gunning Fog, Flesch Reading Ease, and
Flesch-Kincaid reading level algorithms to help you determine how readable
your content is. Reading level algorithms only provide a rough guide, as
they tend to reward short sentences made up of short words. However, they
can give a useful indication as to whether you've pitched your content at
the right level for your intended audience.
