Readability Tests

I've been working on a piece of writing today - one of my big jobs for the week. Because I'm fed up with Microsoft Word and its occasional glitches, crashes and downright bad behaviour I've been working with Google Documents. I've just done a word count and discovered not only that I have written 1465 words, but also that my document has a Flesch Reading Ease of 78.81 and a Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level of 5. (See Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test) This means that it's more readable than Reader's Digest and could be understood by someone in year 5. I think that's fine for something on all age worship... aren't stats wonderful!
