CDC Clear Communication Index

The Clear Communication Index is designed to help you communicate clearly with your intended audience. It has four introductory questions and 20 scored items drawn from scientific literature in communication and related disciplines. You can use the Index in several ways such as to:

  • Inform the design and development of a new communication widget
  • Assess the clarity of a communication product before or after public release
  • Foster discussion and collaboration between writers and reviewers before or during the clearance process as you work to attain scientific accuracy and clarity of content
