Answer

The reading level/readability of a document can be tested at this site:

https://readability-score.com/

There is no charge for occasional use.

A readability score is a computer-calculated index which can tell you roughly what level of education someone will need to be able to read a piece of text easily.   It is recommended that documents for the general public be written on an 8th grade reading level.
