ALRC: Text Readability for Adults

Summary: This project aims to improve the predictability of traditional readability formulas using richer linguistic features supported by behavioral data. Under the direction of Scott Crossley, members of the lab (Cynthia Berger, Ali Heidari, and Stephen Skalicky) will use online crowd-sourcing, natural language processing, eye-tracking techniques in order to obtain measures of text readability that improve upon traditional readability formulas such as Flesch-Kincaid.
