What is Coh-Metrix?

Coh-Metrix is a system for computing computational cohesion and coherence metrics for written and spoken texts. Coh-Metrix allows readers, writers, educators, and researchers to instantly gauge the difficulty of written text for the target audience.

What is cohesion?

"Our definition of cohesion consists of characteristics of the explicit text that play some role in helping the reader mentally connect ideas in the text" (Graesser, McNamara, & Louwerse, 2003).
