Spell checkers, Grammar checkers

Grammar checkers rate the readability of your writing in terms of grade level. Select a section of your work, or a whole piece and click Spelling and Grammar. You’ll get your words per sentence (I hope it’s under 15), your percentage of passive sentences (the lower the better) and the grade level.
Aim down. Take the trouble to write simply. The lower your score, the more people can read your work. I’m proud to say a third grader could read my fiction. (But I hope they don’t read some of it).
Simply. Simply. Simply.
(Incidentally, this small section had 8.5 words per sentence, O% passive sentences and someone who had achieved Grade 3.4 could read it.)
