Lexile® Analyzer

The Lexile Analyzer (Lexile.com/analyzer) measures the complexity of the text by breaking down the entire piece and studying its characteristics which represent the syntactic and semantic challenges that the text presents to a reader. The outcome is the text complexity, expressed as a Lexile measure, along with information on the word count, mean sentence length and mean log frequency.
