Text Analysis is a useful process to assist teachers in the selection of the most suitable texts for their students. This task demands the analysis of several text features, which is done mostly manually (e.g. syntactic complexity, words variety, etc.). In this paper, we present an open source tool useful for linguistic and stylistic analysis, called AzterTest. AzterTest calculates 153 features and obtains 90.09 % in accuracy when classifying into three reading levels (elementary, intermediate, and advanced). AzterTest is available also as web tool.
