So I was bored and decided to run a little comparison.

I looked up the Readability Index Scores of my undergrad and grad thesis papers.

The results?

- Higher grade level is more difficult to understand.
- Lower reading ease score is more difficult to read.

Flesch-Kincaid Grade level: 12.
Flesch-Kincaid Reading Ease score: 36.

Flesch-Kincaid Grade level: 7.
Flesch-Kincaid Reading Ease score: 59.

Ouch. I guess. But given the format of the two papers it’s to be expected.

Update: ToDo List
Flesch-Kincaid Grade level: 13.
Flesch-Kincaid Reading Ease score: 26.

um… my to-do list is my best piece of writing yet!
(Spans about 5-6 years worth of stuff that I’ll eventually get around to.)
