  • Simple  Complex

  • Conventional Unconventional

  • Events related in chronological order  Events related out of chronological order (chiefly literary texts)

  • Traits of a common genre or subgenre  Traits specific to a particular discipline (chiefly informational texts)

Common Core StandardsQualitative Features of Text Complexity

Language Demands: Conventionality and Clarity

  • Literal  Figurative or ironic

  • Clear  Ambiguous or purposefully misleading

  • Contemporary, familiar  Archaic or otherwise unfamiliar

  • Conversational  General Academic and domain specific

  • Light vocabulary load: few unfamiliar or academic words Many words unfamiliar and high academic vocabulary present

  • Sentence structure straightforward Complex and varied sentence structures

  • Though vocabulary can be measured by quantifiable means, it is still a feature for careful consideration when selecting texts

  • Though sentence length is measured by quantifiable means, sentence complexity is still a feature for careful consideration when selecting texts
