I’m sorry to have to grade your paper so harshly, but according to the Hemingway editor — so graciously provided by the author of the linked article — the submission “Grammar Games Outlaw” FAILED to break one of the hallowed rules for writing popular articles on Medium.

Here are your scores, according to Hemingway:

Grade level: 5 (McCready data points specifically require Grade 6)

Based on the above scores, your score is 12.5/100 minus 2 points for your reverse CTA for a final score of 10.5/100

Grade: F

(with apologies to Elliot Nichols)

You have lowered the quality of writing in the room today to stunningly mediocre! Well done!

If you wish to sink to Grammar Games fool’s gold standard of “horrific”, you have the option to remedy this shocking adherence to rule #2, until the final paper is published this Wednesday.
