Building Grammar Programs into the Writing Curriculum of a Lower-Intermediate Writing Class

Peter John Wanner

This paper explains how the Flesh reading ease scores can be used to gauge, monitor and help improve writing skills of English college students. Over the past ten years, reading ease scores have been introduced in various programs such as grammar check and reading fluency calculations in Microsoft Word. This paper will discuss positive aspects of incorporating Flesh reading ease scores and writing level evaluations as a tool for monitoring and helping students bring their papers up to a minimal standard.
