Overview

The Complexity Detection Skill Cartridge® returns two numerical values that attempt to capture the complexity of a piece of text. The underlying hypothesis is that the values correlate with the intellectual effort a reader will have to invest in reading the text. The approach has been verified by comparing for instance texts from the simple Wikipedia (written for language learners and children) against those of the normal Wikipedia as well as comparing yellow-press news articles with more sophisticated publications.
