A Writing Tool to determine Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Stats.

Posted on: May 10, 2010

 In the WORD processing program, you click on “Tools” then on “Word Count.” That will show the number of pages, words, characters, paragraphs and lines in your article or story. But to check the reading grade level, you have to FIRST set it up in the “Options.” Click “Tools,” then click “Options,” then click the “Spelling and Grammar” tab. Put a check mark in the “Check Grammar with Spelling” check box there, and also put a check mark in the “Show Readability Statistics” check box, then click “OK” to close the box. After that, start the Spelling function in Word by clicking “Tools,” then “Spelling and Grammar” and start the spelling/grammar check process. When it finishes, it will display a box about readability, with the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level at the bottom.

Just desire to say your article is as astounding.

The clarity on your put up is just great and that i could suppose you’re an expert in this subject. Well with your permission allow me to take hold of your RSS feed to stay up to date with forthcoming post. Thank you a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

I believe everything published was actually very logical.
However, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier title?
I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention?
I mean A Writing Tool to determine Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Stats.
| Peg366’s Blog is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page
and see how they create post headlines to get viewers to click.

You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
