    The post I am quoting scored a 7.1, so if you write anything close to this in your average e-mails, and bump it up for clients and vendors, I'm guessing that the average would probably be at least 8.

    Of course, this is assuming that Word's reading level analysis is accurate.


    P.S. This post I have just written received a score of 11.7 prior to adding a period behind the point seven, and 10.2 after I put the period down. The final score for what you see is 11.1.

    This indicates to me that it can’t be all that difficult to get an 8.2.
    how do you check grade level like that? I want to try something.

    EDIT... NEver mind.. found it in WORD. BRB

    Here's how they determine the grade level:

    The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level :
    The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level heuristic indicates that the average student in the grade level produced by the scale can read the text. This score takes the average sentence length in words and multiplies it by .39. It then takes the average number of syllables per word and multiples it by 11.8. It sums these scores and then subtracts 15.59 from it.

    Palin's emails scored higher :

    I don't want to have too many, that can be uncomfortable.
