Common Core State Standards
  • CCR Anchor Standard 10 –

Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently

MSDE

text complexity is defined by

Qualitative measures – levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demands

Quantitative

Quantitative measures – readability and other scores of text complexity

Reader and Task – background knowledge of reader, motivation, interests, and complexity generated by tasks assigned

Reader and Task

Text Complexity is defined by:

  • Quantitative Dimensions of Text Complexity
  • These are typically measured by computer software.
  • Examples:
      • Word length
      • Word frequency
      • Sentence length
      • Text cohesion
  • *Adapted from Appendix A, page 4 of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.

  • Qualitative Dimensions of Text Complexity
  • These are best measured by a human reader.
  • Examples:
    • Levels of meaning or purpose
    • Structure
    • Language conventionality and clarity
    • Knowledge demands
  • *Adapted from Appendix A, page 4 of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.

  • Reader and Task Considerations
  • These deal with variables specific to particular readers and/or to particular tasks. They are best made by teachers employing their professional judgment, experience, and knowledge of their students and the subject.
  • Examples of variables specific to readers:
    • Motivation
    • Knowledge
    • Experiences
  • Examples of variables specific to tasks:
    • Purpose
    • Complexity
  • *Adapted from Appendix A, page 4 of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.

Next: Examine the text for Qualitative Measures

  • Measures such as:
    • Text structure
    • Language Conventionality
    • Clarity
    • Levels of Meaning
    • Levels of Purpose
    • Knowledge demands
reader and task considerations
Reader and Task Considerations
  • Considerations such as:
  • Cognitive Capabilities
  • Reading Skills
  • Motivation and Engagement with Task & Text
  • Prior Knowledge and Experience
  • Content and/or Theme
  • Associated tasks

Deciding on the grade placement
  • Considering all 3 dimensions of text complexity, what grade levels would be most appropriate for this text?
  • Like any holistic scoring system, there is not a single correct answer.
