Articles on: Readability Scoring

What's a good readability score?

We always recommend aiming for a Readable grade A. This ensures that your writing will reach the general public.

If you're measuring your text with the Flesch Kincaid Grade Level, we recommend aiming for a FK Grade 8. This corresponds to 8th Grade in the USA education system. It is recommended for the general public.

It doesn't mean you're writing for an eighth-grader. Certainly, an eighth-grader can understand your content if it's written to that level. But writers and marketers from a wide variety of fields can benefit from this. Adults enjoy reading several grades below their actual reading level. Further, a lower Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level makes your content skimmable. This saves your reader's time. It also saves your time by reducing queries.
