Estimate the text complexity of classroom materials in an instant.
To achieve college and career readiness, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) expect students to read text that is more and more challenging throughout their elementary, middle, and high school years. Knowing the quantitative text complexity of the materials you use in the classroom is the first step to ensuring that your students are reading appropriately challenging materials.
The easy-to-use DRP Analyzer is specifically mentioned in the supplement to Appendix A of the CCSS for English Language Arts / Literacy as a valid, reliable measure of text complexity. It may be used with text passages (fiction or nonfiction), ranging in length from 150 to 1,000 words. Get the DRP difficulty level (or readability) of your text and the corresponding Common Core Grade Band.
Simply click "Get DRP". You’ll have your results in an instant!
If you are looking to find the DRP readability or text complexity level of a full-length book you use in the classroom, please see our DRP-BookLink
