Analyze My Writing

Students and teachers looking for a tool to help with text analysis may have just found what they're looking for!  Analyze My Writing is a free text analysis tool that is as easy as copy-paste-click. Simply paste the text you'd like analyzed into the box, select the options for analysis, and off you go.  Analysis options include:
Word Cloud analysis sample
  • Word, sentence, character count
  • Word & sentence length
  • Readibility data (five different indices)
  • Punctuation usage
  • Most common words & word pairs
What a great way for students to self-evaluate their writing by looking at patterns, word choice, etc.

Thanks to Richard Byrne at FreeTech4Teachers for pointing out this tool!
