What’s a vocabulary profiler?

A vocabulary profiler is a tool that checks if a piece of text contains words from a vocabulary list.

Why should I use a vocabulary profiler?

Teachers use vocabulary profilers to check the vocabulary level of a reading text they use for a class or for an assessment. It can be useful for identifying the level of a reading text or as a way of knowing which words in a text should receive more focus. Students can use it to see which words might be most useful for them to learn.


Analizing texts  using a Vocab Profiler

I chose a topic and a website where I could possibly find the information  and  an article for the analysis.

Once I have found it , I copy the article and paste it in the vocab profiler and The Vocab Profiler classifies the vocabulary into the following four categories:

  • K1 Words
  • K2 Words
  • AWL Words
  • Off-List Words
