 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.
