2.Select an article of around 200 words from any businesspublication. Analyze the readability of the article using the“Fog Index”. Is the reading level appropriate for the reader of the publication?
“Readability formulas” are methods used to find out if documents are written at the right reading level for their targetedaudience. Gunner’s Fog Index is one of the most famous. The FogIndex measures the level of reading difficulty of any document. Itassumes that the bigger the words you use and the more complex yoursentences, the more difficult your document will be to read. The FogIndex level translates into the number of years of education a readerneeds to read the material easily. The “ideal” score is 7 or 8; anythingabove 12 is too hard for most people to read. The Fog Index does notdetermine directly if the writing is too basic or too advanced for aparticular audience. It does help you decide whether a document islikely to be hard to understand – and might benefit from editing using“plain English” or “plain language.”
